Founded by Alexander Nolte and Oliver Spieß, Guppyfriend is an innovative project out of Germany that aims to tackle the ocean plastic problem one load of laundry at a time. Armed with the knowledge that harmful microfibres shed from synthetic clothing during the washing process – and ultimately end up polluting waterways – the duo set out to devise a simple household solution that anyone can use. The Guppyfriend Washing Bag is their debut product. Made from a very fine mesh, it collects fibres from synthetic clothing and allows you to conveniently dispose of them before they have a chance to enter oceans or rivers. Nolte and Spieß are also the founders of Langbret, a closed-loop lifestyle and outdoors brand. Easy to use and scientifically proven, Guppyfriend’s Washing Bag protects not just your clothing but the environment.
