Hi @drodum ,

There are also some great products available to catch the synthetic fibers in your washing machine! That way when the items in question need a wash, you don’t have to worry. One example is the Guppyfriend Washing Bag from LANGBRETT (Also listed in the Microfibers: What We Know So Far Expert Advice Article). It can be really difficult to avoid synthetics all together! Especially when we already own these items and want to get the most use out of them before recycling. I love that we have technologies like this to help reduce the pollutants that are released during the wash cycle!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
