The Guppyfriend laundry bag is a scientifically approved solution against microplastic pollution from washing synthetic clothing.

Did you know that when you wash your synthetic clothing (eg clothes made from polyester, acrylic, nylon) teeny tiny microfibres are released into the water and neither washing machines or wastewater treatment plants are able to filter these tiny plastic particles to prevent them entering our aquatic environments! Scary, huh? It is estimated that a city with a population of 100,000 releases the equivalent of 15,000 plastic bags worth of microfibres every single day. Microplastic particles have been found in countless species, including plankton and even humans!

The Guppyfriend laundry bag reduces fibre shedding while protecting your clothes during the washing process.

  • Material: polyamide 6.6, untreated monofilament
  • Size: 50 x 74 cm (about as big as a pillowcase)

The Guppyfriend washing bag is only a first step towards a holistic solution to microfibre pollution. Not more. Not less. Our overconsumption needs to change radically, and new materials, manufacturing techniques, clean washing machines and more effective sewage treatment plants need to be developed. This might take a while. Until then your Guppyfriend washing bag is a practical and effective way to reduce plastic pollution in our rivers and oceans.

The Guppyfriend washing bag goes along perfectly with Best Pegs stainless steel pegs! Check them out here.

How To Use Your Guppyfriend wash bag

Simply place your synthetic clothing inside the wash bag and zip up. Examples include polar fleece, polyester, active-wear. Do not over-fill the bag.

Pop the bag inside your washing machine and wash as usual with non-synthetic items. Liquid washing detergent is recommended.

After washing, inspect the bag for microfibres, they typically collect in the top corners of the bag and in the seams. Dispose of these in the bin.

    I wear a work uniform made of polyester. I was amazed how many fibres came off the clothing during the wash. I used to get detergent residue marks on the clothing. Using the bag has stopped that too.

    The guppy bag means I can finally wash my fleeces and technical hiking gear without worrying about what goes down the drain and in to rivers and oceans. Great product and great service from Best Pegs.
