Reduce the access of microplastic waste to the environment by using Guppyfriend.
With each wash, countless plastic fibers 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 fibers and dispose them of properly.
The patented filter system is based on 15 microns (1 mm = 1.000 microns) diameter threads, which prevents the fibers to slip through the tiny openings of the GUPPYFRIEND bag. Fibrous residues and lints caused by washing are retained by the Guppyfriend and therefore do not pollute the waste water. The bag has been tested by scientific institutes and the determined fiber retention capacity in all test was above 90%, mostly close to 100%. .
The Guppyfriend washing bag not only reliably retains microfibers, but also protects the textiles: Compared to washing without the GuppyFriend, 86% fewer fibers are shed from synthetic textiles
- Put synthetic textiles into the Guppyfriend. Do not overfill and separate colors.
- 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.
You can also put clean cotton and woolen clothing in a bag. Textiles from natural materials also lose fibers. The bag reduces fiber breakage and thus protects clothing and reduces wear. So your clothes last longer - another sustainability benefit of the Guppfriend Washing Bag
Material 100% polyamid. Size 50 × 74 cm
Things to Consider when using Guppyfriend:
- Do not put the bag into the tumble dryer
- do not rinse under running water
- wash only clothes of similar colors together in the bag
- anything sharp may harm the material of the bag
- do not iron (the crumpled surface is not a problem)
- use only liquid detergents
- do not dry in the sun
- remove coarse dirt and animal hair before washing
Guppyfriend wash bag protects and thus extends the life of textiles. Less fibers will break and the bag will not shed the fibers themselves.
The fibers that break during washing are recovered in the bag and can easily be removed from the bag. The Guppyfriend washing bag is a daily reminder to adapt your washing rituals and to reflect your purchasing patterns.
The Guppyfriend wash bag is made of nylon and can be recycled with similar materials in groups (PA 6.6). The zipper must be removed before recycling and recycled with metal waste.
At the end of the life cycle, the bag can also be sent to the manufacturer - they use the materials to make new bags:
