No more microfibres

Pitch

Every time we wash our clothes – especially if we wash synthetic fabrics, we release millions of microparticles into the world water supply, that eventually ends up in the ocean. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Because when we install our filter technology into the next generation of washing machines and when consumers put this filters into existing washing machines, we capture those microfibres before they’re ever released. So that they can be disposed at safety and responsibly.
