The Guppyfriend washing bag is the first practical way to prevent plastics from entering the rivers and oceans when washing synthetic clothing.
Most of our clothing is made from synthetic materials. During washing, broken plastic fibres enter our waterways via the wastewater system and pollute the rivers and oceans. It is estimated over 1/3 of all plastic in our oceans originated from our clothing.
Guppyfriend laundry bag is a scientifically approved filter to stop microplastic pollution.
How it works:
- Put synthetic textiles into the Guppyfriend laundry bag up to 2/3 full, wash your clothes as normal.
- Remove wet laundry from your bag after washing.
- Remove released microfibres from inside the bag and dispose of them properly — do not rinse down the sink.
The profits from the sale of the Guppyfriend Washing Bag go to STOP! Micro Waste and the STOP! Plastic Academy to educate and raise awareness of (micro)plastic pollution.
Guppyfriend is the only washing bag designed and proven to STOP microplastics entering our water system.
Using this washing bag is a daily reminder to be more conscious of our impact on the planet.
