Microplastic - The Tiny Enemy

Whenever you wash your synthetic polyester t-shirt or fleece sweather you probably do not think about the tiny plastic fibers aka micro plastic fibers that let go of your t-shirt or sweather and gets flushed in the ocean.

Micro plastic fibers comes with every synthetic piece of clothing we buy, the most common pieces are socks, underwear, shirts, t-shirts, polyester pants, sweatpants, gym clothes, hoodies and basically everything that is not made of cotton or other sustainable fabrics.

These tiny almost invisible plastic fibers are super difficult to filter out in wastewater treatment plants and thus end up in the oceans, rivers and waters. The process when washing your synthetic items is becoming a bigger andd bigger part of an increasing contribution of plastic waste that ends up in the oceans every year.

Wildlife in the oceans are really struggelig because of the micro plastic, when the fibers are so tiny you can`t even see them, they will swallow tons of it and it causes major digestive problems, infections. reproductive problems and starvation for the wildlife in the sea.


A product we really love and recommend for when cleaning and washing your clothes is a Guppyfriend. A guppyfriend is a soft and smooth filter bag which stops the micro plastic from getting in the wastewater while you`re cleaning your clothes.
