The GUPPYFRIEND washing bag is the first practical way to prevent microfibers from entering rivers and oceans when washing synthetic cltohing.
Most clothing is made from plastic materials these days as it's cheaper and easier to make, but when you wash your clothing small fibers of this material are being washed out straight into the water system.
That's why I am so happy to be stocking Guppyfriend; its soft surface results in fewer fiber losses and thus helps your garments last longer. those microfibers that break during washing are captured inside the bag and then you can disposve of them properly, without them washing down the drain.

Guppyfriend Laundry Bag
When I realised that tiny little plastic microfibers were making their way into the water system every time I washed my clothes I was horrified!
I buy 100% cotton clothing whenever I can now but let's face it, your wardrobe is a tough one to takle all at once and I will still have clothes with synthetic/plastic fibers as I wear them until they are 'done'.
That's why these washing bags are a life saver, just put all of your synthetic clothes into the bag when you wash and you'll be amazed to see the fibers that are caught/saved from being washed away.
