Guppyfriend Microwaste Washing Bag
Stop microfiber pollution at the source with the Guppyfriend Microwaste Washing Bag! According to a study from UCSB, a city the size of Berlin releases a wash-related volume of microfibers equivalent to 500,000 plastic bags... every single day. These plastic fibers from synthetic textiles are consumed by sea life, where they cause countless health problems that ultimately work their way up the food chain. The solution? Stop microfibers while you wash AND protect your clothes from shedding. The Guppyfriend is made from untreated polyamide 6.6, which captures microfibers in the washing machine so you can dispose of them properly. Plus, Guppyfriend donates profits to STOP! Micro Waste and the STOP! Plastic Academy non-profits to raise awareness about microplastic pollution and to educate students, adults and industry partners about the problem. To use: Put synthetic textiles into the Guppyfriend. Do not overfill. Separate colors. Close the Guppyfriend and wash as usual. Take out wet textiles after washing. Remove the released microfibers from the upper corners inside of the Guppyfriend and dispose properly. Want other ways to reduce microfiber pollution?

OUR IMPACT We've all benefitted from traditional commerce. It's convenient, it's accessible, but it's hurting our planet. To meet our demand, companies are making products by extracting staggering amounts of finite resources and using harmful production methods.
OUR BRANDS DO BUSINESS DIFFERENTLY There is no perfect answer, but companies everywhere are taking steps to improve the system. They're changing each of these vital steps in the production process, moving us along the path towards a more sustainable future.
OUR COMPANIES HAVE... BETTER MATERIALS By turnig to renewable, organic, upcycled, and recycled materials our brands cut down on unnecessary resource extraction, energy, and water usage that accompanies traditional production.
CLEANER PRODUCTION Our companies are redesigning production by powering their operations with renewable energy sources, using fewer chemicals in their products, and utiliszing production waste by recycling and reusing excess materials and ingredients.
LOWER CARBON FOOTPRINT Through our partnership with CarbonFund, we offset the carbon footprint created from transporting the products offered on our site. In addition, many of our companies manufacture their products in the USA, which cuts down on the amount of miles each product travels before reaching your door. Our brands are also taking steps to package their products in recycled, recyclable, and compostable materials.
