Climate Quick Tip: Pare Down Microplastics
Our synthetic clothes shed microplastics with each wash. Slash that impact in half by washing in cold water — easier on fabric and reduces energy use by more than 75%.
To avoid shedding microplastics with each load of laundry, consider installing a filter on the outside of your washing machine, like the PlanetCare Laundry Filter, or using the GuppyFriend Washing Bag. Both can help stop microplastics from entering the ocean and extend the life of your washing machine and even your septic system, for those who have one.
