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!

No Washing Micro Pollution

Feel better about reducing the microfiber pollution from every wash. Better than some competitor products that only eliminate about 10% or less and products that have to be replaced frequently.

This bag is great!

I thought it would be an annoying extra step, but it’s thrones out to be pretty easy, and it’s been a great reminder to check in on our synthetic clothing purchases. The one thing that’s a little tough about it is that the micro plastics don’t just collect in the corners for me- often they are smeared all over the side of the bag or collect on the clothing. I’m still working on easy ways to removed these little bundles, but other than that it’s great, clothes are just as clean in the bag and I will continue using it!

Microfiber Catching Laundry Bag

Not sure if my clothes is getting the best wash while it's in the bag. Instruction says you can fill 2/3 but I find it better when you fill only half way and put in the washer long ways. It does catch microfibers.

Larger than expected

I was hoping it would be large since unfortunately I have many synthetic items to wash. It’s a great bag and seems like my clothes are getting clean in it.
