Synthetic micro fibre pollution is a major threat to our rivers and oceans
Developing and making new products more sustainably is an obvious way to reduce the harm on our environment. However maintaining the longevity of existing products, and reducing synthetic micro fibre pollution is equally critical.
Synthetic micro fibre pollution is a major threat to our rivers and oceans. Until new technologies are developed we must find ways to help reduce the amount of micro fibres reaching our water ways. We are committed to helping promote awareness, provide knowledge and solutions which will help counter this issue. We already use high quality fabrics in the construction of our products. These fabrics are extremely durable and resist micro fibre shedding, however a small amount of shedding is still inevitable.
We have partnered with Guppyfriend to provide you with a solution
The Guppyfriend washing bag helps protect your TICCC products and reduces the amount of micro fibres reaching rivers and oceans.
How does it work?
_The Guppyfriend washing bag reduces synthetic fibre breakage by 86%. This extends the lifetime of your TICCC kit
_The fibres that do break away are captured in the bag and prevented from reaching our rivers and oceans. These can be easily removed from the bag after washing _Dispose of the released micro fibres in your residual waste
The high quality fabrics used in TICCC garments resist micro fibre shedding, however some shedding will occur. Please be aware that you may only find small traces of microfibre after several washes. Your Guppyfriend washing bag can be used for all other synthetic fabrics.
