FreeStyle Vie Flushable - Colostomy Bag
Fast, easy disposal
The FreeStyle Vie® Flushable inner liner is designed for simple, reliable disposal in any toilet - at home or abroad, at sea or in the air.
The inner liner is safe to flush down:
- all domestic toilets
- septic tanks systems
- vacuum extraction systems
The liner begins to dissolve the instant its outside surface comes into contact with water. The clean outer cover can then be recycled.
Flush it away every time
In tests, 100% of liners flushed away first time - and everything you flush meets or exceeds the necessary European standards for toilet disposability.1
The 'greener' option
FreeStyle Vie Flushable's outer pouch can be recycled along with other plastic packaging. Because no part of the pouch (or contents) needs to be disposed of in landfill, there are none of the environmental issues associated with the use of old fashioned colostomy bags.
The healthier option
Old-fashioned colostomy bags can also pose a health risk. Some plastics take up to 450 years to biodegrade in landfill. Once the landfill sites have been discontinued the land is often used for building new homes, so old pouches can be dug up many years later, causing a health hazard to those working on the site.
Faecal contamination from the pouches can include:
- Infections diseases including Hepatitis A, B or C
- Worm infestations
With FreeStyle Vie Flushable, all faecal matter ends up in the sewerage where it can be properly treated, so these hazards will not arise.
