About toilet paper gel uk - an alternative to wet wipes

Toilet paper gel is a revolutionary new product that is quickly gaining traction in the UK and beyond. Other terms for this product include toilet roll gel or toilet tissue gel. Developed by Wype UK, it is a gel for toilet paper that provides a convenient and hygienic solution for keeping clean on the go. With its unique gel-like texture, toilet wipe gel offers a wet wipe alternative that is easy to apply.

Not only does it provide an effective way to stay clean at home or while travelling, but also helps to reduce waste by eliminating the need for single-use wipes. This new product has quickly become a must-have item for anyone looking to stay clean and keep their environment free from single-use plastics.

Wet wipes and the environment

Wet wipes have grown in popularity massively with people who like to feel cleaner than they do when using only dry toilet tissue. While wipes may seem like a convenient way to clean up, they can be very damaging to our plumbing systems and the environment.

Wet wipes don’t break down like toilet paper does, which means they can cause clogs in our pipes and sewer systems. They also contain plastic fibres that don’t biodegrade, leading to the accumulation of microplastics in our oceans and waterways. Ever heard of a fatberg?

The production and disposal of many wet wipes also has a wider environmental impact. Most wet wipes are based on plastic resins like polyester or polypropylene, which can take decades to break down. This means that these wipes end up in landfills or oceans, where they contribute to the growing problem of plastic pollution.

The effects of water pollution on our planet can be devastating, with negative impacts on wildlife and ecosystems everywhere. It is time for us to take action and reduce our dependence on wet wipes in order to protect the environment.

About Wype Gel

Wype UK was founded by Giorgia and Eli, an inquisitive Italian and a globetrotting Kiwi. When Giorgia first came to the UK from Italy, she was desperately missing her bidet!

On a quest to feel clean when away from home, they turned to wet wipes, unaware that they could be causing all sorts of trouble to the sewer system. They soon learned about the hazard that wipes pose to our planet, so determined to find a better solution, they got thinking.

The founders of Wype mini met whilst studying and worked together tirelessly to develop an alternative to wet wipes, something that provided the clean feeling of a bidet while being gentle to the body and good for the planet. This is how Wype came to be - an environmentally-friendly alternative to wet wipes, providing you a with a bidet-level feeling of cleanliness on the go. And what’s best of all, Wype is made right in the UK, further reducing your carbon footprint.

Other eco bathroom products

For the full eco experience why not pair your wype toilet gel with all natural toilet paper? Natural toilet paper is a great way to help protect the environment and reduce your carbon footprint. It is usually made from either bamboo or recycled materials, both of which are more sustainable than traditional toilet paper.

Bamboo is a fast-growing grass that can be harvested without damaging the environment, while recycled materials are diverted from landfills and reused. Natural toilet paper is also typically softer and more absorbent than traditional paper, making it a great choice for those looking to make their bathrooms greener.

Little Green Basket offers a range of other eco personal car products for the bathroom from vegan haircare, to vegan soap, vegan deodorant and more.
