GuppyFriend Washing Bag
Clothes! So fun, so cool!
Plastics! So harmful to the environment—especially oceans and ocean life!
GuppyFriend! A simple laundry solution to keep the microplastics your clothing generates from flowing back into the water supply, the ocean, etc.
“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.”
“The first pragmatic solution to prevent microplastic pollution from washing synthetic clothes”
Simply: Put your plastic (er, polyester, nylon, “modal", spandex) clothing into the washing bag. Wash normally. Scoop out gross plastic lint and recycle.
