The microplastic problem
Microplastic released from washing harms the environment.
With each wash, countless microfibres from synthetic textiles make their way from washing machines into rivers, lakes, and oceans. Once in the environment, the microfibres 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 food and our bodies through the food chain.
