Description

Microfibers released from washing harm the environment. With each wash, countless plastic fibers from synthetic textiles are making their way from washing machines into rivers and oceans.

The Guppyfriend Washing Bag tackles microplastic pollution! This hands-on solution reduces the amount of microfibers that may enter major waterways from washing.

  1. It reduces fiber shedding and protects your clothes
  2. It filters the few fibers that do break
  3. It’s a daily reminder to change our buying habits and washing rituals

After washing garments in Guppyfriend, remove the microfibers from the bag and throw them away in the trash. If you'd like to ensure they won't end up in our waterways, you can collect the fibers in a sealed glass jar, and toss the glass jar away once it is full of synthetic fibers!

How to use: Fill half-full with synthetic clothing materials, zip closed, wash as usual; remove clothes to hang dry and remove released microfibers found inside the Guppyfriend.

  • Designed for use with synthetic materials (polyester, acrylic, nylon etc), the Guppyfriend can also be used as a wash bag for natural-fiber clothing.
  • Size: 29.1 x 19.7 in (74 x 50 cm)
  • Material: polyamid 6.6 untreated

The inside of the bag is slick which leads to reduced abrasion and breaking of fibers. The clothes in the bag undergo less mechanical stress and less friction with other clothes, which prevents fibers from breaking in the first place (by up to 86%!) and a longer lifetime of the textiles!

The washing bag is designed in such a way that it can easily be recycled with identical materials at the end of its lifecycle: The whole bag – except the zipper – is made of a single material. Please send your Guppyfriend back at to them at the end of its lifecycle. They will reuse it and eventually recycle it into new Guppyfriend Washing Bags!

great stuff

super light and handy! my only issue so far is that the laundry inside stays super wet after the washing machine (but that's probably the washing machine's fault? it should spin more).

Guppyfriend bag

It makes it so my washer won’t do the spin cycle to get all the excess water out which is really frustrating

Hi Abbi, We are so sorry about this! The bag itself should not stop the rinse cycle, as it is wet also. Thank you for your feedback. We will let the manufacturers know.

Great product

I've been mainly using it for my workout clothes and a few other non-natural garments for 2 weeks now and it seems to be doing the job. I've especially noticed that it traps a good amount with my spandex/polyester workout clothes. The key is to only fill up the bag halfway or your clothes won't have room to move and get clean.

I’m sure it works, but there are a lot of drawbacks

I’m sure the bag catches micro plastics, but it also catches everything else. Even only filling the bag half way, my clothes aren’t getting clean, I have to rewash something every time and my clothes are always covered in lint. The stuff at the bottom of the bag seems to be the worse. I don’t think I will keep using it moving forward. Maybe only for travel washing. 

Hi Katy, It does catch everything else, including lint, because it is in a bag. If you place synthetic fibers in there, the lint most likely has plastic in it. The bag saves the entire collection of lint/synthetic fibers so you can dispose of them properly. The key is to not overfill the bag so the clothes move around and each item is washing thoroughly during the cycle. We are sorry that you did not like it! Our suggestion is to use it for items that you believe don't collect a lot of lint, and maybe put a few less items in the bag so each one gets washed correctly.
