The Guppyfriend Washing Bag is a patented solution, that filters out the tiniest microfibers released from textiles during washing. The self-cleaning fabric bag is made of a specially designed micro-filter material. Microfibers released from washing harm the environment. With each wash, countless plastic fibres from synthetic textiles are making their way from washing machines into rivers and oceans.
What kind of apparel needs to go into the Guppyfriend washing bag?
Every textile loses microfibers, but it is the synthetic materials (polyester, acrylic, nylon, etc.) that shed the harmful fibers. Most apparel contains synthetic fibers to some degree (unfortunately, sometimes it is not stated on the label).
