Micro-fibres: the problem

 

Microfibres released from washing harm the environment.

With each wash, countless plastic fibres from synthetic textiles are making their way from washing machines into rivers and oceans.

The Guardian calls it ‘the biggest environmental problem you’ve never heard of’.

The tiny plastic pieces are found in the ice of the artic and the remotest parts of the deep sea.

While the negative impact of microplastics in our environment to our well-being is still not scientifically proven,  indications are overwhelming that we not only harm nature, but also threaten our own health.
