You can use the GUPPYFRIEND™ laundry bag, which is designed to capture the microplastics present in synthetic garments when you wash by hand or machine.
We use ECONYL® for our swimsuit core material, a 100% regenerative nylon made from abandoned fishing nets and nylon waste from the world’s oceans and landfills.
Unfortunately, this swimsuit is not durable enough, but it’s the best we can do at the moment.
When you wash products made from synthetics, even recycled yarn, tiny pieces of plastic called microfibres are washed into the ocean.
Instead of ending up in rivers, lakes and oceans, these plastics stay in the bag. Place your laundry in the bag and wash as normal.
