I find disinfectant wipes very convenient and space effective to use when I'm traveling, but are they harmful to the environment when thrown out?

Make Your Own

You can have the wipes without the harsh chemicals by making your own. Cut a roll of quilted paper towel (from recycled material) in two and place one half in a snug fitting spill-proof tupperware container. Mix together equal parts of vinegar and water and pour enough over the towlettes to saturate them.
