A large part of our clothing contains synthetic materials. During washing, tiny plastic fibers break and enter rivers and oceans via wastewater and thus harm our environment. This is exactly where the Guppyfriend washing bag comes in. According to the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT, on average 86% fewer fibers of synthetic clothing break when washed with the washing bag. The fibers that do break collect in the corners of the washing bag after washing and can be easily removed and disposed of.
- It reduces fiber shedding and protects your clothes.
- It filters the few fibers that do break and don’t lose any fibers themselves.
- It’s a daily reminder to change our buying habits and washing rituals.
