- Plastic particles washed off from synthetic clothes contribute up to 35% of the primary plastic that is polluting our oceans.
- Recent research proves that we are eating and drinking plastic and that plastic fibers are literally raining down from the sky.
- Microfibers have been found in fish, plankton, chicken, sea salt, beer, honey, and in tap as well as bottled water.
Stop the Microfiber Pollution:
Filter Your Laundry Wastewater
When you wash your synthetic clothing, tens of thousands of microfibers go out with the wastewater in each load. They end up polluting the rivers and the oceans.
With our microfiber filter it's now possible to stop this.
3rd Party Lab Tested
Made in EU
Our microfiber filter is the first and only washing machine filter with proven efficiency to stop 90% of microfibers with every laundry load.
We collect used cartridges to refurbish and recycle them for future use! That way, no microfibers get released into oceans.
Install it in 10 minutes to any standard washing machine. Everything you need for installation is already included in the box!
Replacement filter cartridges are sent in bulk to minimize the number of shipments and reduce the carbon footprint.
PlanetCare filters fit all standard washing machines.
How to Use
1 filter cartridge = 20 loads
- First, install a filter to your washer.
- Then, do your laundry as usual.
- After the cartridge is full, replace it.
- Send used cartridges back to us.
We will take care of your used cartridges and make sure to recycle microfibers, as well as refurbish cartridges for future use. (The costs for return shipping are always covered by us.)
Please note: if you wash a lot of cotton fabric and/or if you have pets at home that shed a lot of fur, your cartridges may last less than 20 washes.
Every laundry counts
Every time you filter water when doing laundry, you're doing something good for the planet.
1 plastic bag LESS every week
By simply installing a PlanetCare filter on your washing machine, you can stop throwing one light plastic grocery bag into the ocean every week.
Joint efforts of all PlanetCare users have already attracted the attention of policymakers and have a direct impact on legislation changes.
FAQ about Microfiber Filter & Cartridges
Yes, our filters are compatible with all machines: HE/high efficiency, standard, front loaders, and top loaders.
In our facility we disassemble the cartridge and remove the filtering medium with the fibers. The remainder of the cartridge is cleaned and a new filter cartridge is assembled for re-use. This way we ensure that fibers are not accidentally or intentionally released into the environment, we reuse the majority of the cartridge and we ensure that waste is properly treated in the most environmentally acceptable way.
To ensure the best filter performance, we highly recommend you use only liquid detergents. They dissolve completely and won’t compromise the efficiency of your microfibre filter.
On the other hand, powder detergents contain ingredients that don’t dissolve and will get caught by your filter. This might affect the durability of the cartridges. If you do decide to use powder detergents, we recommend you avoid overdosing to keep this effect to a minimum.
Replacing the cartridge is very easy. Simply roll out the filter housing, take off the used cartridge and replace it with a new one.
Once you've used all cartridges (except the one currently installed), simply schedule a courier pickup via our website or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange it for you. We also pay for the return shipping!
No, the filter cannot damage the machine. The flow through the filter will become more restricted the longer it is used to the point that water flow will be too low for normal functioning (draining) of the machine. The machine will detect a blockage of the drain path and will automatically stop, reporting an error. After replacement of the used filter cartridge normal function can be resumed. The stopping of the machine is a safety feature of the machine and does not damage the machine.
Our filters received Ocean Clean Wash Quality Label that assesses the feasibility of solutions and the commitments made by companies to stop microfiber pollution from synthetic clothing.
PlanetCare is the first filtering solution that received this certificate issued by Plastic Soup Foundation.
