Let's make microfiber pollution a thing of the past. Did you know all synthetic fabrics shed tiny pieces of plastic called microfibers in the wash? (That means anything made with polyester, nylon, etc — recycled or not.) The Wash Bag helps trap microfibers during the wash cycle to keep them from polluting water streams and harming marine life. 

The Wash Bag measure 15" tall and 12 1/4" wide and is made in the same SA8000 certified ethical factory as all of our clothes. 

Directions

To use the Wash Bag, place the items you’d like to wash inside the bag until it is ¾ full, zip it up, and toss the entire bag into the washing machine or hand wash in the sink. Post-wash, line dry your Wash Bag (it cannot go in the dryer, but tbh it doesn’t need to) and empty out any filtered microfibers into the trash. We do not currently know of a way to recycle microfibers at this time, but are hopeful for the future. In the meantime, we can keep them out of our oceans. 

Deep Dive

Microfibers are teeny tiny fibers that shed from our clothes and pollute water streams. It is estimated that approximately 100,000 synthetic fibers are shed with every wash cycle. All fabrics shed microfibers, but we worry about synthetics because they do not biodegrade. Synthetics are anything made from polyester, spandex, or nylon, recycled or not — basically most swimwear, fleece, and activewear. Since synthetics make up 60% of all clothing worldwide, we wanted to create a solution.  

The Wash Bag is fully recyclable. We designed it to last a long, long time, but just in case it gets damaged or you no longer need it, send it back to us and we’ll recycle it for you.

We recommend using a tape measure to find your perfect fit. If you're in between sizes, we suggest sizing down for a more compressive fit, or sizing up for a more relaxed fit. If you're still unsure about your size, drop us a line at hello@girlfriend.com and we'd be happy to help.
