Oceans & oceans of microfibers. Time to clean up our act!

The Ocean Clean Wash campaign was initiated by the Plastic Soup Foundation in 2016 to bring on the map & find solutions to the issue of microfiber pollution from synthetic clothes. Since the start of this campaign, we try to educate people & companies about the problem and facilitate solutions that will allow us to #StopTheMicrofiber.

We focus on raising awareness about microfibers released in the environment through manufacturing, washing & wearing of textiles. We try to attack the issue from all sides: by engaging, consumers, designers, retail brands, washing machine manufacturers, scientists & governments. Collaborative work is key to solve this issue.
