Yes, the oceans and fresh water bodies of this planet are all pretty much contaminated by the teeny tiny (and often microscopic!) pieces of plastic known as microplastics, and while there's very little we individuals can do about the large-scale problems, this is one small thing. Plus it's made from untreated and *recyclable* polyamide fabric. It's big enough to fit one queen-sized sheet at a time, or multiple other garments.
Promising review: "I bought a Guppyfriend a little under a year ago and haven’t looked back. The bag itself is durable and shows no signs of wear. The designers obviously aimed for quality and hit their mark. You can see the microfibers accumulate after the first half a dozen to dozen washes, which I find comforting (this is actually a solution) and discomforting (how many people have no idea washing their clothes is contributing to ocean pollution?).
I wish it was bigger so I could fit more clothes per load, and thus use less energy and water. But one step at a time. All in all, an affordable, easily implemented lifestyle change and solution to one of the many ways our everyday lives are slowly eroding the health of the planet. " —Rachel0122
