Anti-microplastic washing bag
Our sustainable cycling apparal made from recycled polyester and recycled polyamide is the best choice to minimize carbon footprint and resource usage. Unfortunately, like all textiles, putting your jerseys and bib-shorts in a washing machine over and over again will slowly degrade them and small pieces of fiber can come out and end up in the environment.
To prolong the life of your Velor clothing as long as possible, and minimize microplastics as much as possible, we recommend using a GUPPYFRIEND washing bag. This is the first pragmatic solution that prevents microplastic fibres from entering rivers and oceans through the washing of synthetic textiles. The broken fibres collect in the corners of the washing bag after washing and can be easily removed and disposed of.
A large part of our clothing contains synthetic materials. During washing, tiny plastic fibres break and enter rivers and oceans via the waste water and thus harm our environment. This is exactly where the GUPPYFRIEND washing bag comes in. According to the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT, on average 86% fewer fibres of synthetic clothing break when washed with the washing bag. The fibres that do break collect in the corners of the washing bag after washing and can be easily removed and disposed of.
