This eco friendly washing bag is made of untreated nylon and is a pragmatic solution to prevent synthetic microfibers from entering into rivers and oceans. Every time you wash your clothes, tiny fragments of almost invisible fibres from the garment get washed into our rivers, water ways and oceans, so small that sewage treatment plants cannot effectively filter out these micro fibres. Once in the environment, these micro fibres are consumed by aquatic organisms, which can result in gastrointestinal infections and blockages, reproductive problems, and starvation – problems that ultimately work their way up the food chain.The Guppyfriend bag captures micro fibres and hinders them from making their way into the marine ecosystem. After a while you can peel out a ball of fibres and discard it in the plastic recycling bin.
Due to Its soft surface, it also results in less fibre loss which protects your garments thus extending their lifetime as well as being a daily reminder to wash less and to buy better - something we can all do to make a difference.
Plastic pollution in the oceans is one of the biggest environmental issues of our time, and the Guppyfriend is a great option for everyone who wants to do their bit to prevent plastic emissions and promote environmental friendly living.
Made in Europe
PLEASE NOTE: Liquid detergent should be used and not powder for best results. In tests done by the manufacturer, the Guppyfriend was washed at a maximum temperature of 40°C. Therefore, we do not recommend washing hotter than 40°

Great strides are being made to bring down our planet’s plastic emissions, but more needs to be done. Even without plastic bags and cups ending up the ocean, we still unknowingly pollute the environment with microscopic types of waste plastic.
Microbeads have now been banned, but the same problems arise when talking about micro fibres. Synthetic plastic fibres shed from clothes after every wash and these fibres cannot be filtered out, so they’re washed away with the rest of the water and cause untold harm to the environment.
The GuppyFriend Washing Bag is designed to combat this issue by letting you wash your clothes as normal while trapping those loose fibres. GuppyFriend are aiming to drastically reduce our level of micro fibre waste with a specially-designed mesh that catches the micro fibres and stores them in the crevices in the bag; ready to remove and dispose of correctly.
Anyone who wants to lower their level of everyday plastic waste emissions should give GuppyFriend a try.
