Why we chose a subscription model

We have designed a return-and-reuse programme for our cartridges, which will prevent you from running out of cartridges as well as help us to minimise waste generation. By reusing the durable cartridge parts we ensure that nothing is disposed of that could potentially lead to a further release of microfibres into the environment.

How to install PlanetCare's microfibre filter

1 billion KGs of microfibres

Every year we pollute our oceans with about a billion kilos of microfibers. These microfibres have a disastrous effect on marine life and ultimately on ourselves. Up to 700.000 individual plastic fibres can break up and degrade during a single washing cycle. These microfibres can be stopped with a filter, but washing machine manufacturers are procrastinating the implementation of microfibre filters due to high R&D costs and low margins.

"Finally consumers can take action. If we wait for the fashion industry, it can  take years before this problem is solved."

- Maria Westerbos founder Plastic Soup Foundation

Independently tested

PlanetCare filters have been independently tested by leading research institutions  and captures 80-90% of microfibres. The installation of the filter is easy and only takes about 5 minutes.
