This eco friendly washing bag is made of untreated nylon and is a pragmatic solution to prevent synthetic microfibers from entering into rivers and oceans. Every time you wash your clothes, tiny fragments of almost invisible fibres from the garment get washed into our rivers, water ways and oceans, so small that sewage treatment plants cannot effectively filter out these micro fibres. Once in the environment, these micro fibres are consumed by aquatic organisms, which can result in gastrointestinal infections and blockages, reproductive problems, and starvation – problems that ultimately work their way up the food chain.The Guppyfriend bag captures micro fibres and hinders them from making their way into the marine ecosystem. After a while you can peel out a ball of fibres and discard it in the plastic recycling bin.
Due to Its soft surface, it also results in less fibre loss which protects your garments thus extending their lifetime as well as being a daily reminder to wash less and to buy better - something we can all do to make a difference.Plastic pollution in the oceans is one of the biggest environmental issues of our time, and the Guppyfriend is a great option for everyone who wants to do their bit to prevent plastic emissions and promote environmental friendly living.50x75 cm

The extent of the problem of plastic pollution goes further than most people know, it’s not just the plastic straws and plastic bags that get thrown away, but the problem goes much further and is in so many hidden places. Microbeads have been successfully banned however there is still a problem with micro fibers which exist in synthetic textiles, when you wash clothes, neither your washing machine or wastewater treatment plant are able to filter the tiny plastic particles from synthetic textiles.
These tiny plastic particles once in the environment degrade into smaller pieces and persist and end up in the food chain. The problem is huge, but because these are tiny hidden particles it’s not as obvious as the plastic bag problem.
Guppyfriend is a solution to help capture micro fibres and hinder them from making their way into the marine ecosystem.
Plastic pollution in the oceans is one of the biggest environmental issues we face, and the Guppyfriend Washing Bag is a great option for everyone who wants to do their bit to prevent plastic emissions and promote environmental friendly living.
