Did you know that millions of microfibers originate from all your favorite activewear, swimwear, and even natural fabrics? These tiny toxic fibers make their way from your washing machine to the oceans and rivers where they damage ecosystems, work their way up the food chain, and even threaten human health. Your tap water and even single-use bottled water (eek!) usually contain these microfibers too.
Microfiber pollution is a huge environmental problem. Polyester, nylon, acrylic, and other synthetic fibers — all forms of plastic — are now used in the majority of all clothing produced worldwide. Even so-called natural fibers like cotton are usually treated with harmful finishing agents or dyes which can make their fibers toxic as well. We take this issue seriously and strive to create solutions to reduce your environmental impact.
Special ‘monofilament’ laundry bags catch shedding fibers and can save up to 90% of them from entering wastewater! Do your part to protect your oceans and waterways by investing in a microfiber filter bag before your next wash. Remember to wash cold, use liquid detergent (less friction and shedding), and hang dry.
