STOP! Microplastics Guppyfriend Washbag

Even if we are being conscious in using deadstock or recycled materials we have a microplastics problem with synthetic materials.  With each wash, countless plastic fibers from these synthetic textiles are making their way from washing machines into rivers and oceans.  

According to a study from the University of California at Santa Barbara, a city the size of Berlin releases a wash- related volume of microfibers equivalent to approx. 500,000 plastic bags - every single day.

The Guppyfriend Washing Bag is a pragmatic solution to prevent microfibers from entering into rivers
and oceans. Its soft surface results in less fiber loss and thus extends garments lifetime. Those microfibers that break during washing are captured inside the bag. The bag itself does not lose any fibers.

Wash with your Bower Swimwear, Teeki yoga wear, Clan of Cro, Swedish Stockings and Under Protection lingerie.

Guppyfriend is a non-profit organization from Berlin initiated by Langbrett, a group of surfers and nature lovers. 

The bag is entirely made of polyamide and can be recycled.

Do Not Wash Dry Flat

This won't need a machine or hand wash, a quick wipe with a damp cloth, cleaning sponge or brush will do the job.

Instead of using the tumble dryer, arrange on a flat surface on a towel and allow to air dry. Air drying avoids mis-shaping and also keeps wool from felting.
