The Guppyfriend washing bag is only a first step towards a holistic solution to microfiber pollution. Not more. Not less. Our overconsumption needs to change radically, and new materials, manufacturing techniques, clean washing machines and more effective sewage treatment plants need to be developed. This might take a while. Until then your Guppyfriend washing bag is a practical and effective way to reduce plastic pollution in our rivers and oceans.
- It reduces fibre shedding and protects your clothes.
- It filters the few fibres that do break and doesn’t lose any fibres itself.
- It’s a daily reminder to change our buying habits and washing rituals.
HOW IT WORKS
With each wash, countless plastic fibres from synthetic textiles are making their way from washing machines into rivers and oceans.
The Guppyfriend washing bag is a patented solution, that filters out the tiniest microfibres released from textiles during washing. The self-cleaning fabric bag is made of a specially designed micro-filter material. Simply collect the fibres and dispose of them properly.
