Meet The "Unflushables"

If you see pee and poo floating around in the streets Vancouver, don’t be alarmed, they’re just the newest mascots in a campaign to remind residents that “the only things meant to be flushed are pee, poo and toilet paper.” The campaign, dubbed “Unflushables” by Metro Vancouver, rolled out the new mascots on April 1st, and the city has since posted multiple videos on their website about the damage that disposing even items that say “flushable” on the packaging, such as wipes, can do to the sewage pipes. The government agency launched a campaign in 2016 called “Never Flush Wipes,” which similarly encouraged residents to throw wipes in the garbage and not in the toilet.
