The problem

Microplastic released from washing harms the environment.

With each wash, countless microfibres from synthetic textiles make their way from washing machines into rivers, lakes, and oceans. Once in the environment, the microfibres concentrate pervasive bacteria and pollutants. They are consumed by aquatic organisms, which can result in gastrointestinal infections and blockages, reproductive problems, and starvation. Serious consequences are not limited to animals and nature.

The tiny plastic fragments threaten our own health: They enter our food and our bodies through the food chain.

Washing instructions against microplastic pollution

Synthetic garments lose plastic particles. Particularly during washing, the plastic fibres that break off end up in the wastewater and so far cannot be filtered out efficiently.

The microplastic particles enter the sea, accumulate toxins and are ingested by fish and other marine life. The plastic from our clothes thus ends up on our plates and harms not only nature but also us.

"#1 WASH BETTER" are ten simple washing tips that help us to change our washing behaviour and reduce the pollution of the oceans by microplastics.

It filters the microfibres that do break and doesn’t lose any fibres itself.

It’s a daily reminder to change our buying habits and washing rituals.
