The Guppyfriend Washing Bag$29.75
Scientifically approved solution against microplastic pollution from washing clothes
With each wash, countless plastic fibres from synthetic textiles are making their way from washing machines into rivers and oceans. The Guppyfriend Washing Bag filters out the tiniest of microfibers released from textiles during washing.
This self-cleaning fabric bag (which doesn’t lose any fibres itself) is made of a specially designed micro-filter material. Simply collect the fibres and dispose of them properly. It reduces fibre shedding and protects your clothes.
