A pre-soaked, tough cleaning cloth that wipes down any surface leaving it clean and disinfected?

New collaboration with G-Star to stop plastic microfibers - Plastic Soup Foundation

The Plastic Soup Foundation and G-Star RAW are calling on other fashion companies, washing machine manufacturers and the textile industry to support the international Ocean Clean Wash. “Leading European research recently showed that a fleece releases an incredible 1 million microfibers every time it is washed,” says Maria Westerbos, director of the Plastic Soup Foundation. The signatories of this initiative will contribute to the development of one or more innovative solutions to prevent the release of plastic fibers from garments in the future, such as fabrics that do not release microfibers or washing machine filters that capture the released fibers.
