Product Manufacturers

If you manufacture, market or convert nonwoven disposable products, or provide nonwovens substrates to this segment, then we invite you to join us.

Since 2008, INDA and EDANA have published Flushability Guidelines along with a Code of Practice to help companies assess their product prior to making a flushable claim.  We also promote one consistent “Do Not Flush” symbol to be used on products that do not meet the Guidelines or have a significant potential to be flushed, even if not designed or marketed for this purpose.

If you haven’t already, we encourage you to join with other leaders in the nonwoven industry and adopt the Flushability Guidelines and Code of Practice. By doing so, you can confidently prove your flushable claim, correctly label those products that should not be flushed, and do the right thing for our environment and waterways.

We suggest you begin with the executive summary to get an overview of the Guidelines and the Code of Practice.

If you need any other information, or want more information about joining this on-going effort, feel free to contact Jim Loftus, Director of Education and Technical Affairs at

INDA Members, please contact Misty Ayers, Marketing Coordinator, to obtain your free copy of the Flushability Test Methods.
