Turns out people are flushing whatever substitutes they’ve used as stores saw a run on TP. In Redding’s case, workers pulled out a cut up t-shirt. The issue isn’t limited to The Golden State either as plumbers across America are reporting calls for clogged pipes. On Monday, the federal Environmental Protection Agency tweeted, “Toilets are not trash cans.”
