Microplastic is one of the biggest environmental challenges of our time.
It's everywhere. It harms plants, animals and people. It fuels the climate crisis, causes species to become extinct, causes infertility and is carcinogenic. And although it‘s scientifically proven and microplastic pollution is rapidly increasing, the problem is massively underestimated and little is done about it.
Together we can change this!
We develop products, that
GUPPYFRIEND informs, invents and creates solutions. Together we stop microplastic pollution.
The problem starts in your laundry. An alarming number of tiny fibers from synthetic fabrics are making their way from washing machine into nature. Microplastics are poisoning our oceans and food supply and thus harm animals and us.
According to a research team from the University of California at Santa Barbara a city of 100,000 inhabitants releases a wash-related volume of microfibers equivalent to 15,000 plastic bags. A city the size of Berlin may be responsible for more than 500,000 plastic bags – every single day.
Solutions like the GUPPYFRIEND Washing Bag, Detergent, Sink Filter and Washing Machine Filter help stop microplastic pollution. So, you protect the environment, your health, and your clothes.
"The GUPPYFRIEND Washing Bag holds back plastic fibres while keeping the environment free of microplastics. Small effort - big effect!"
"You and I can save our oceans from billions and billions of tiny pieces of plastic! This really proves that every little action counts."
"GUPPYFRIEND is essential for anyone who cares about the microplastics problem."
