35% of microplastics in oceans come from clothing. Each time an item of clothing is washed, up to 700,000 microscopic fibres make their way into our oceans.* The Guppyfriend washing bag is designed to collect shredded fibres that come off in the wash. You can then easily remove and dispose of the wastes. It can extend the life of your textiles.
Guppyfriend washing bag is a patented technology by Germany-based company Langbrett. It has been featured in the BBC, The Guardian and National Geographic.

The Guppyfriend Washing Bag was invented by Langbrett, a group of surfers and nature lovers based in Germany. Langbrett has been a leading circular economy clothing and footwear company since 2008. Langbrett dedicates the profits from the sales of the Guppyfriend washing bags to support their non-profit organisation STOP! Micro Waste.
The Guppyfriend washing bag is specifically designed to tackle microplastic fibres released during washing. Unlike other washing bags, it utilises a unique yarn structure called monofilament, which acts as a stable stick, preventing the loss of microplastic fibres. The round, smooth yarn is highly resistant to alkalis and does not unravel or rub off, even with repeated washing.
The Guppyfriend washing bag has undergone rigorous testing by independent institutes, including the German Textile Research Centre North-West, DTNW Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT, and the University of California at Santa Barbara, as part of the Patagonia research program.
The bag has dimensions of 50 x 74 cm. Fill the bag up to about 2/3 of its capacity to allow proper movement of textiles inside. Avoid overfilling the bag.
Yes, the Guppyfriend washing bag is suitable for use with all types of washing machines. However, make sure you do not overfill the bag to maintain optimal performance.
We recommend using our laundry powder with the Guppyfriend washing bag, as it does not leave any residuals in the wash. If using liquid detergent, make sure it is free from microplastics.
The Guppyfriend washing bag is safe to use at a maximum temperature of 40°C. We do not recommend washing at higher temperatures, as it can shorten the lifespan of your clothes and consume more energy.
