A large part of our clothing contains synthetic materials. During washing, tiny plastic fibres break and enter rivers and oceans via the waste water and thus harm our environment. This is exactly where the GUPPYFRIEND washing bag comes in. According to the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT, on average 86% fewer fibres of synthetic clothing break when washed with the washing bag. The fibres that do break collect in the corners of the washing bag after washing and can be easily removed and disposed of.
Staff note: The Guppyfriend washing bag doesn't hold a full load of washing. We recommend using two Guppyfriend washing bags at a time, or filling the rest of your washing machine with any of your non synthetic items. This also ensures that the drum is balanced and can fully spin without damaging your machine, or resulting in very wet clothes if your machine automatically slows down the spin of an unbalanced drum.
Please also note that laundry eggs are less effective whilst using a Guppyfriend washing bag. For the best results, use an eco friendly liquid detergent.
