With the war on straws gaining international attention, consumers should now focus on the war on plastic microfibers, which can be reduced by Cora Ball.
More and more of our products are being manufactured with plastic, including our clothing. When we do laundry, the plastic in our clothing, like viscose or polyester, sheds small plastic particles that enter our waterways. These unseen plastics enter our food chain supply, resulting in the human consumption of plastic. The Cora Ball addresses this issue by catching these microfibers in our laundry before they enter our waterways.
To use, simply put the device in any washing machine (front loader, top loaders, hybrid, etc) before you wash. Afterward, clean the Cora Ball to remove any fuzz or lint and dispose of them. Currently, Cora Ball is working on a solution to upcycle or recycle these materials. This easily implementable solution can help our waterways and food remain plastic free.
