Another step towards sustainability. In the course of product development, Ryzon is always looking for innovative materials and more sustainable solutions. The aim is to optimize the properties of each individual product in the portfolio. Ryzon pursues the highest quality standards. This means not only perfecting the functionality and appearance of the products, but also focusing more on the aspect of sustainability. The environmental pollution caused by microplastics from synthetic fibers is only one aspect of this complex issue - but a very important one.
In cooperation with the GUPPYFRIEND® Washbag, Ryzon wants to counteract microplastic pollution and raise awareness.
A global issueThe problem of tiny plastic particles cannot be identified locally, but now affects the entire earth. They are found in countless quantities in the seas and rivers, can be found in our food and pollute the air. At a sobering 35 percent, synthetic textiles account for a large proportion of microplastic pollution. With every wash cycle, a number of synthetic fibers are released into the sewage system, which find their way into open water and cause damage there.
Stop microwaste!Ryzon is on a path. The aim of this demanding path is sustainable production of the entire product range. Due to the predominant production in other European countries, Ryzon has already taken the right direction. With a supply chain that is as transparent as possible and selected cooperations, aspects of sustainability can be monitored and credibly represented. A large number of products are already made of natural and recycled materials, thus creating alternatives. However, recycled synthetic fibers also pose a problem, as plastics are generally not biodegradable.
So far there are no adequate filters that are used in everyday washing to filter out microplastics. The GUPPYFRIEND® Washbag is ideal for bridging the time until a mature solution is found and immediately reducing the concentration of microplastics in the water.
GUPPYFRIEND® wash bag
Friction causes microfiber breakage. With every wash cycle, countless microplastic particles from synthetic clothing get into the wastewater. The GUPPYFRIEND® reduces the breakage of the fibers and catches the loose particles. With its close-meshed rod-shaped openings, the wash bag prevents the smallest fibers from getting into the waste water. The resulting abrasion can be easily removed from the bag and disposed of after washing.With the help of the GUPPYFRIEND® Washbag it is possible to wash more sustainably and to counteract the pollution of the seas and rivers. Here you get to the product.
The moment is now.
