Wiped Out! Boots is banning all plastic-based wet wipes

02 May 2022

With over 800 million wet wipes sold in the last year, Boots is taking action to eliminate unnecessary plastic.

Earth Day saw Oxford Street brands committing to help shoppers make more sustainable choices. Boots has pledged to remove all wet wipes that contain plastic fibres from its shelves by the end of 2022, replacing them with plant based biodegradable alternatives.

Not only is Boots committing to eliminate plastic in wet wipes, it has expanded its ranges of reusable and refillable alternatives in the last two years, including offering reusable make-up remover pads, cleansing pads, baby reusable wipes and refillable cleansing products. ​
