„We love that the Guppyfriend not only filters microplastics, but also visualizes, that with each wash, plastic fibers go straight into our oceans.“
Madeleine, Daria Daria, Bloggerin
„The Guppyfriend is essential for everyone who cares about the microplastic problem.“
Lydia, Guppyfriend Nutzerin
It works! And it feels really good to be able to do something against microplastics. One more step to becoming an eco-friendly family.
Microfibers released from washing harm the environment. With each wash, countless plastic fibers from synthetic textiles are making their way from washing machines into rivers and oceans.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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).
STOP! MICRO WASTE
STOP! Micro Waste is a nonprofit initiative to explore and initiate ideas on how to avoid, replace and re-use plastics. It was initiated by LANGBRETT, a group of surfers and nature lovers.
It is fundamental to raise awareness about microplastic pollution, but at the same time we need pragmatic solutions. We link innovative ideas such as the Guppyfriend Washing Bag with education and corporate dialogues to spread knowledge about (micro)plastic pollution.
The profits from the sale of the Guppyfriend Washing Bag go to STOP! Micro Waste and the STOP! Plastic Academy to raise awareness about (micro)plastic pollution and to educate students, adults and industry partners about the problem.
