The laundry bag against microplastics
With every laundry cycle, tiny plastic fibres from textiles pass through the washing machine and into the wastewater, polluting rivers, oceans and the soil on an unimaginable scale. Guppyfriend wants to stop this environmental pollution. The Guppyfriend laundry bag is a first step. It makes the microplastic issue visible, helps to communicate it and is a pragmatic solution that enables everyone to contribute to the protection of the environment.
Guppyfriend uses the experience gained from its own series of tests and scientific findings from its collaboration with universities, institutes, industry and independent laboratories to develop ideas and - in the best case - effective solutions against microplastic pollution. The proceeds from sales of the laundry bags help support STOP! Micro Waste. The non-profit organization raises awareness about the causes of micro waste and provides information on how to keep plastic out of nature to schools and other educational institutions.
