The Cleaner Urchin

An Urchin on the coast of Los Abrigos(Tenerife) lives with a wet wipe. The current crisis generated by the pandemic has led to an increase in the use of this product among consumers. Flushing wipes down the toilet not only causes clogging problems in sanitation, but also a serious environmental problem. Being made up of synthetic material, they break down into microfibers that may be bioavailable to some organisms such as filter species, which do very poorly.
