A big problem with tubs is the fact that people end up using many more wipes than necessary to get the job done – they are on a perforated roll and users tend to pull out 2 or 3 at a time instead of just the 1 they need, all the wipes in the tub dry out if the lid is left open and the top wipe is often dry because it’s been poking through the top.
There is also a high level of waste created, both in the immediate and long term – initially in a working environment, the tubs can be easily cracked or the lid popped open, causing the wipes to dry out. And an empty tub is the same size as a full one, creating more waste than a pack.
In the bigger picture, this also translates into more waste at landfill – not an issue with packs as they’re recyclable, and even if they are sent to landfill, they’re made using over 70% less plastic than tubs. Our specially designed packs with moisture-locking lids keep the packs wet even with the lid left open, and the wipes are z-folded to dispense 1 at a time.
