When we wash synthetic garments, tiny plastic fibres are released into the washing machine which then find their way into the world’s oceans and waterways. It’s estimated that trillions of these fibres are released, and not only do they take centuries to decompose, they also accumulate bacteria and pollutants that wreak havoc on marine life and delicate natural eco-systems.
The Guppyfriend™ Washing Bag protects synthetic garments and reduces the number of microfibres that get flushed through washing machines. The single compartment bag is made from 100% polyamide and can be fully recycled. The inside is slick, even where the tiny threads cross, which leads to reduced abrasion and breaking of fibres. The clothes in the bag undergo less mechanical stress and less friction with other clothes, leading to decreased fibre loss and significantly increasing the lifetime of your garments – saving the environment and prolonging your wardrobe!
