We believe that taking care of the things we own is most environmentally friendly way to behave, especially when it has already taken so many natural resources to be produced.
Guppyfriend Washing Bag
The Guppyfriend Washing Bag is the first scientifically approved solution to prevent microfibers from entering into rivers and oceans. It results in fewer fibre losses and thus helps your garments last longer. Those microfibers that break during washing are captured inside the bag.
It’s a daily reminder to change our buying habits and washing rituals. Even so, it is more environmentally friendly to use the clothes (with plastic content like polyester, nylon, Spandex, Lycra, elastane) you already have until the end and try to make more environmentally friendly choices in the future by choosing natural materials like cotton, wool, linen etc where you can.
Material: Polyamid 6.6 untreated.
Dimensions: 50 x 74 cm
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. It is fundamental to raise awareness about microplastic pollution, but at the same time we need pragmatic solutions.
The profits from the sale of the Guppyfriend Washing Bag go to STOP! Micro Waste and the STOP! Plastic Academy to raise awareness about (micro)plastic pollution and to educate students, adults and industry partners about the problem.
STOP! Micro Waste is a nonprofit initiative to explore and initiate ideas on how to avoid, replace and re-use plastics. It was initiated by LANGBRETT, a group of surfers and nature lovers.
