yes the shores and tow paths all through Mortlake Barnes ,Putney are littered with thousands
of cotton buds that can be picked up which I think is down to Thames water as they do flush them with the sewage with , condoms ,tampons etc but will the paper type just be a case of want you cant see is safe you could be talking about tons of who knows what dissolving into
the water system as toilet paper etc if it is harmless good but who really knows
