Synthetic fabrics lose microplastics, especially in your washing machine. The particles ultimately end up in rivers and oceans and harm nature and our health.
With the GUPPYFRIEND Washing Bag, you can prevent this: it reduces fibre shedding during washing, helping to protect your clothes, and it reliably filters microplastic fibres out before they pollute water. Thumbs up! It's good for you, your clothes and the environment.

The microplastic problem
Microplastic released from washing harms the environment. With each wash, countless microfibers from synthetic textiles make their way from washing machines into rivers, lakes, and oceans.
Once in the environment, the microfibers concentrate pervasive bacteria and pollutants. They are consumed by aquatic organisms, which can result in gastrointestinal infections and blockages, reproductive problems, and starvation. Serious consequences are not limited to animals and nature.
The tiny plastic fragments threaten our own health: They enter our diet and our bodies through the food chain.
Washing with GUPPYFRIEND: how it works
Put synthetics and other delicate clothes in the GUPPYFRIEND Washing Bag, close the zipper all the way into the zipper cover and wash as usual together with other clothes next to the bag at a maximum of 40 °C. Please take out the damp clothes, remove the captured fibres from the hem and dispose of them in the non-recyclable waste.
