Guppyfriend Laundry Bag
Micro plastics are some of the most insidious type of ocean plastic, and we create them almost every time we do our laundry.
Unlike natural fibers, such as cotton or wool, synthetic fibres, such as elastane in undies, do not biodegrade, and tend to bind with molecules of harmful chemical pollutants found in wastewater, such as pesticides or flame retardants. These pollutants travel up the food chain from plankton right through to polar bears.
Until textile and fashion manufacturers stop using synthetic materials, we can do something at home to prevent micro fibres!
Guppyfriend bags work to prevent clothes from shedding microfibers in the wash, and helpfully collect any fibres that are shed. Simply put your laundry inside the bag, zip it closed, and place the bag in your washing machine drum!
Isn’t it frustrating when you buy online and your order arrives packaged in reams of plastic?
That’s not a problem you will ever have if you order from Wastenot!
We are proud to reuse our cardboard and delivery materials (you may occasionally see our supplier logos on the boxes we use) because if it’s still in good shape, why recycle when you can reuse?
You also won’t find any plastic tape holding your order together. All of the tape we use is made of paper too. Made from recycled paper with no harmful chemicals in the adhesive.
Your order will always be delivered by Royal Mail for UK wide orders, and will continue its journey with your local mail carrier for international orders. We don’t believe in putting extra vehicles on the road to deliver parcels, so keep your eye out for the postman!
