IS it bad for the environment to flush kleenex?

    Although Kleenex is made from biodegradable cellulose fibers, it does not break down as rapidly as bathroom tissue (since there’s an additive to make it stronger).  So, Kleenex suggests throwing them in trash bins rather than flushing them down.

    It can be. Kleenex aren’t made to disintegrate in water like toilet paper  is. These can clog toilets, clog pipelines, septic tanks, etc. If your tank is clogged, then someone will have to come out and pump it. If a pipe is clogged too badly, it can burst, and let all that raw sewage into the ground. Flushing one or two is fine, but unless it’s a special flushable kind, it shouldn’t be happening on a regular basis.
