With each wash, countless plastic fibres from synthetic textiles are making their way from washing machines into rivers and oceans.
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. Simply collect the fibres and dispose them of properly.
- Put synthetic textiles into the Guppyfriend. Do not overfill and separate colours.
- Close the Guppyfriend and wash as usual.
- Take out wet textiles after washing.
- Remove the released microfibers from hems inside of Guppyfriend and dispose properly.

The Guppyfriend washing bag is only a first step towards a holistic solution to microfiber pollution. Not more. Not less. Our over-consumption needs to change radically, and new materials, manufacturing techniques, clean washing machines and more effective sewage treatment plants need to be developed. This might take a while. Until then your Guppyfriend washing bag is a practical and effective way to reduce plastic pollution in our rivers and oceans.
