Guppyfriend Washing Bag - Catch the microplastics during laundry
Guppyfriend Washing Bag
The Guppyfriend washing bag is the first pragmatic solution that prevents microplastic fibres from entering rivers and oceans through the washing of synthetic textiles. The broken fibres collect in the corners of the washing bag after washing and can be easily removed and disposed of.
A large part of our clothing contains synthetic materials. During washing, tiny plastic fibres break and enter rivers and oceans via the waste water and thus harm our environment. This is exactly where the Guppyfriend washing bag comes in. According to the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT, on average 86% fewer fibres of synthetic clothing break when washed with the washing bag. The fibres that do break collect in the corners of the washing bag after washing and can be easily removed and disposed of.
It reduces fiber shedding and protects your clothes.
It filters the few fibers that do break and doesn’t lose any fibers itself.
It’s a daily reminder to change our buying habits and washing rituals.
