Make an Eco-Friendly Switch to Reusable Cloth Wipes
Wet wipes have become commonplace in Australian homes and workplaces, especially as the COVID pandemic brought greater attention to sanitary practices. Whether we’re sterilising our desk spaces, removing make-up, or changing a nappy, wet wipes are ubiquitous because of their convenience.
However, as many of us have come to learn, just because something is easy doesn’t mean it’s eco-friendly. Flushing wet wipes down the toilet is a major cause of sewer blockages and can be hazardous to our waterways. The ABC has previously reported that the cost of removing wet wipes from sewer systems reaches millions of dollars. (Google ‘wipe fatberg’ if you dare!)
To make matters worse, single-use wet wipes are not biodegradable. Even brands that claim their wipes are safe to flush are often not! Wet wipes that end up in landfills may take up to 100 years to break down, causing harm to natural flora and fauna in the meantime. Fortunately, there are alternatives including our brand new reusable cloth wipes!
Here & After Reusable Cloth Wipes
Our team is so happy to announce the arrival of the Here & After Reusable Cloth Wipes. After doing heaps of trying, testing, and testing some more, we have finally created the reusable wipe of our dreams - one that’s better for people - and better for the planet! Available in a pack of 25 and soon 10, these sustainable wipes are 100% certified organic cotton and made to last.
Our cotton wipes are both GOTs and OEKO-TEX certified, which means we’re meeting the highest textile standards in the world.
- We proudly support fair trade. That’s why we’ve partnered with a highly-vetted, socially responsible producer in India to help bring Here & After Reusable Cloth Wipes to you.
These reusable wipes are perfect for young families. They’re free from harsh chemicals and can be safely used on your baby’s face, hands and body.

These sustainable cloth wipes are designed to reduce household waste, save money, and reduce your family’s exposure to perfumes and irritants commonly found in single-use wet wipes.
- Cloth wipes can serve a myriad of functions in your home, from personal hygiene to cleaning and baby care.
We’ve paid careful attention to the style and design of the Here & After Reusable Cloth range. You’ll be able to choose from four beautiful colours that are inspired by nature. Select from sage green, storm blue, lavender or unbleached cotton. Each wipe is sized 16 cm x 16cm.
