  • Description
    Vanilla Sand partnered with Guppyfriend on a mission to stop Micro Waste! The Guppyfriend Washing Bag is only a first step towards a holistic solution to microfiber 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. It is fundamental to raise awareness about microplastic pollution, but at the same time, we need pragmatic solutions. We link innovative ideas such as this one with education and corporate dialogues to spread knowledge about (micro) plastic pollution. The profits from the sale of the Guppyfriend Washing Bag go to STOP! Micro Waste and the STOP! Plastic Academy to raise awareness about (micro) plastic pollution and to educate students, adults, and industry partners about the problem. STOP! Micro Waste is a nonprofit initiative to explore and initiate ideas on how to avoid, replace and re-use plastics. It was initiated by LANGBRETT, a group of surfers and nature lovers.
  • Garment Care
    With each wash, countless plastic fibers from synthetic textiles are making their way from washing machines into rivers and oceans.

    The Guppyfriend Washing Bag is a patented solution, that filters out the tiniest microfibers released from textiles during washing. The self-cleaning fabric bag is made of a specially designed micro-filter material. Simply collect the fibers and dispose them of properly.

    1. Put synthetic textiles into the Guppyfriend.

    2. Close the Guppyfriend and wash as usual.

    3. Take out wet textiles after washing.

    4. Remove the released microfibers from hems inside of Guppyfriend and dispose of them properly.
