Why I Love This

DESCRIPTION

The GUPPYFRIEND washing bag is the first practical way to prevent microfibers from entering rivers and oceans when washing synthetic clothing!

Most clothing is made from plastic materials these days as it's cheaper and easier to make, but when you wash your clothing small fibers of this material are being washed out straight into the water system.

That's why I am so happy to be stocking Guppyfriend; its soft surface results in fewer fiber losses and thus helps your garments last longer but those microfibers that break during washing are captured inside the bag and then you can dispose of them properly, without them washing down the drain!

FEATURES

  • Material: polyamid 6.6 untreated
  • Size: 50 x 74 cm /19,7”x 29,1”

WHY I LOVE THIS

When I realised that tiny little plastic microfibers were making their way into the water system every time I washed my clothes I was horrified!

I buy 100% cotton clothing whenever I can now but let's face it, your wardrobe is a tough one to tackle all at once and I will still have clothes with synthetic/plastic fibers as I wear them until they are 'done'.

That's why these washing bags are a life saver, just put all of your synthetic clothes into the bag when you wash and you'll be amazed to see the fibers that are caught/saved from being washed away.

HOW TO DISPOSE OF FIBERS

    "It depends on where you live. In most European countries, there are no more open garbage dumps. In this case, the microfibers, preferably in a closed container, can be disposed of as residual waste.

    In Germany residual waste is energetically used to generate electricity and does not end up in landfills. Waste gases from waste incineration are filtered and are 99% non-toxic.

    If you do not live in Germany, you can check the following link, if there are so-called “orderly” dumps (sanitary landfill) or “dumpsites” in your area: http://www.atlas.d-waste.com

    If there are sanitary landfill or dumpsites in your area, we recommend that you collect your fibers in a closed container (glass, metal, plastic or similar). Thus you reduce the chance that synthetic fibers get blown away and end up in the environment."
