Guppyfriend | Microplastic Washing Bag
The Guppyfriend Washing Bag is a scientifically proven at home solution for filtering out microplastics from synthetic clothing in your washing machine water. The microplastic fibers that break down during a wash are caught by the bag and easily removed, preventing them from entering our rivers and oceans!
The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the European Chemicals Agency defines synthetic microfibers or microplastics as any type of plastic less than 5 mm in length. These microfibers are commonly washed into our natural ecosystems when simply doing laundry.
The Guppyfriend has been scientifically proven 86% effective at reducing synthetic microfibers from shedding into our rivers and oceans and it protects your clothes. They will not harm the intact fibers in your clothes and help in the fight against microplastic pollution!
