THE GUPPYFRIEND WASHING BAG

With each wash, countless plastic fibers 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 microfibers released from textiles during washing. The self-cleaning fabric bag is made of a specially designed micro-filter material. Simply collect the fibers and dispose them of properly.

THE PROBLEM

Microfibers released from washing harm the environment. With each wash, countless plastic
fibers from synthetic textiles are making their way
from washing machines into rivers and oceans.
The Guardian calls it ‘the biggest environmental problem you’ve never heard of’. The tiny plastic
pieces are found in the ice of the artic and the remotest parts of the deep sea. While the negative impact of microplastics in our environment to our
well-being is still not scientifically proven, indications are overwhelming that we not only harm nature, but also threaten our own health.
