20 million fibers
On average synthetic clothes, particularly fleeces, release 20 million fibers during every washing cycle.
71% is synthetic and not bio-degradable
On your body
Synthetic fibers end up in the surface waters of the world where they remain forever. They are often ingested by animals.
... in your body
The tiniest synthetic fibers can enter the tissue and organs of fish and shellfish and may eventually end up on your plate and in your body.
This needs to stop
We can prevent synthetic fibers from entering the water with a microplastics-filter.
