The problem starts in your laundry

An alarming number of tiny fibers from synthetic fabrics are making their way from washing machines into rivers and oceans. Unfortunately, neither washing machines nor sewage treatment plants effectively filter out the microfibers. Once in the environment, these fibers concentrate pervasive bacteria and pollutants. 

The world’s first microfilter washing bag

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 benefits of Guppyfriend Washing bag

  • It protects your apparel. Viewer fibers break compared to washing without the bag. Hence, it extents the lifetime of your favorite sweater.

  • The microfibers that do get released are caught by the mesh and don’t make their way with the effluent into the marine ecosystem.

  • The Guppyfriend washing bag does not lose any fibers itself. 

  • It is an easy to use, uncomplicated, affordable and pragmatic solution to protect guppies, other sea dwellers and us.

 
 
 
 
 
It’s amazing to see how many fibers are captured in the washing bag. It works very well! And: I get along with my laundry much better, because I don’t have to wait until I have collected enough synthetic clothes, but can wash sportswear together with my cotton clothing etc.. I didn’t have that in mind in the first place.
Well, everything is great!

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.
