The unbelievable journey of microplastics

How far is it from your sink to the sea? It’s shorter than you think! What sounds like holiday planning is a serious problem.

Because of our daily duties at the sink, tiny plastic particles constantly end up in our wastewater. Where do they come from? From using plastic sponges, from hand washing a fleece jumper, from the dust in the cleaning water and even from cleaning agents themselves. What a mess!

We developed the GUPPYFRIEND Sink Filter, so that you can effectively prevent microplastics from landing in the drain while washing and cleaning. Excellent!

How do I use the filter?

You can use the filter all around the house. Therefore, your filter stops microplastics at the source: In the kitchen, bathroom or workshop. How does it work? It's effortless: Put the GUPPYFRIEND Sink Filter in the washbasin and filter out the microplastic. The filter fits most sinks. But don't worry if your sink ins’t standard, because it works just as well at an angle. When done, dispose of the collected particles and fibres in the waste bin. Sounds good? Let's get started.

Before we forget: discover our plastic-free GUPPYFRIEND Detergent, the GUPPYFRIEND Dishcloth and Cleaning Cloths and other valuable helpers, such as the GUPPYFRIEND Luffa Sponges. Let’s keep a clean home and a healthy ecosystem.

Tiny nanoparticles also form a proportion of the mass of house dust. The GUPPYFRIEND Sink Filter can help retain them, because some particles invisible to the human eye stick to larger fibres and can be filtered out, too. However, liquid and dissolved polymers, i.e., plastics in detergents, can’t be retained. The solution: use cleaners without microplastics or dissolved, liquid / gel-like polymers.
