Who We Are
Internationally, water service providers, and the associations and organizations representing them, share a common goal to reduce the problems caused by the inappropriate disposal of customer products down the toilet. The International Water Services Flushability Group (IWSFG) is a group of water associations, utilities, and professionals seeking to provide clear guidance on what should and should not be flushed down the toilet to protect customers, wastewater systems, their workers, and the environment. In 2018, the IWSFG released its flushability specifications for products that are marketed as safe to flush down the toilet. Please visit the Flushability Specification page for more information.
NEW! Friends of the Earth Canada is filing an application for an inquiry into flushable wipes with the Competition Bureau. Friends of the Earth Canada is represented by attorneys from EcoJustice, which has an online petition asking for this inquiry. Watch a news video on the effort here.
