GuppyfriendGuppyfriend began with a crucial conversation between a marine biologist and the Langbrett team. She shared the results of a study on the topic of microplastics. This study shows that with every wash, tiny plastic particles and fibers end up in the oceans, rivers, but also in the soil - in large quantities. For the passionate surfers and nature lovers of Langbrett, it was quickly clear that something had to be done about it. And so the first product to prevent the flood of microplastics was born: the Guppyfriend wash bag.
STOP! Micro Waste
Today, Guppyfriend's product range has continued to grow and offers clever solutions to prevent microplastic pollution. With the proceeds from the wash bags, however, it was also possible to establish the STOP! Plastik Academie of the non-profit organization STOP! Micro Waste gUG. To this day, parts of the profits flow into the organization's various projects. Here, for example, STOP! Plastik Academy coaches are trained to carry out campaigns, project weeks or teaching units and thus sensitize children, young people and adults to the issue of microplastics.
