On our search for different ways to help out Mama Earth, we realized that every time we wash our clothes in the laundry, tons of microfibers and microplastics are washing into the waterways. We researched solutions and stumbled upon the Cora Ball!
What It Does:
"The Cora Ball is a new kind of laundry ball. Inspired by the way coral filters the ocean, the Cora Ball prevents microfiber from breaking off our clothes and collects our microfibers into fuzz we can see, so we can dispose of microfibers in the right way. Together, we keep these microfibers out of our waterways and our ocean. Yes! Just toss the Cora Ball into your washer. It's a simple step that has a big impact wash after wash."
An independent test found that the Cora Ball can catch 26% of microfibers before they flow down the drain. That means if just 10% of households in the U.S. used a Cora Ball, it would prevent the plastic equivalent of over 30 million water bottles from ending up in our waterways!
"Your use of a Cora Ball protects air, water and your clothes. The Cora Ball’s design not only collects microfibers until you remove them and put them in the trash, but it also prevents your clothes from breaking up. That means your clothes will last longer while protecting your public waterways."
