Description

GUPPYFRIEND Washing Bag

Synthetic fabrics lose microplastics, especially in your washing machine. The particles ultimately end up in rivers and oceans and harm nature and our health. With the GUPPYFRIEND Washing Bag, you can easily prevent this: It reduces fibre shedding during washing thereby protecting your clothes, and it reliably filters microplastic fibres out before they pollute water. Thumbs up! That’s good for you, your clothes and the environment.

Washing with GUPPYFRIEND: how it works

Put synthetics and other delicate clothes in the GUPPYFRIEND Washing Bag, close the zipper all the way into the zipper cover and wash as usual together with other clothes next to the bag at a maximum of 40 °C. Please take out the damp clothes, remove the captured fibres from the hem and dispose of them in the non-recyclable waste.

Did you only find a few fibers in the bag? Excellent! 

GUPPYFRIEND Washing Guide

What else can you do? In general, the following formula applies to washing: Wash colder and less often. Liquid detergent compared to powder detergent leads to fewer broken microfibers because powder promotes abrasion. Wash hard and soft textiles separately and reduce the spin speed. Sounds complicated? It’s very easy. In our GUPPYFRIEND washing guide has detailed all the steps for you.

Also: Always filter the cleaning water! According to a study by the well-known Fraunhofer Institute, each of us produce on average 4 to 5 kilograms of microplastic per year. Causing microplastic pollution because we are too comfortable with making a small change to our daily routines?

The microplastic problem

Microplastic released from washing harms the environment. With each wash, countless microfibers from synthetic textiles make their way from washing machines into rivers, lakes, and oceans.

Once in the environment, the microfibers concentrate pervasive bacteria and pollutants. They are consumed by aquatic organisms, which can result in gastrointestinal infections and blockages, reproductive problems, and starvation. Serious consequences are not limited to animals and nature.

The tiny plastic fragments threaten our own health: They enter our diet and our bodies through the food chain.

Thank you for your contribution to protecting the environment!
