PlanetCare Microfibre Filter Starter Kit


In Stock

Select Size: Mini Starter Kit



Did you know that if you wash your clothes without a filter, you release an equivalent of one plastic bag per week into the ocean? 

When you wash your synthetic clothing in your washing machine, tens of thousands of microfibers go out with the wastewater in each load. Recent research also proves that we are eating and drinking plastic and that plastic fibers are even present in rain.  

Every year, over a million tons of microplastics, end up in oceans. Our washing machines are a major source of this plastic pollution. Researchers found that an average 6 kg load of laundry releases more than 700,000 microscopic plastic fibers into wastewater. These plastic fibers come from synthetic (= plastic) textiles like polyester. Synthetic textiles have become a staple in our wardrobes: today, over 60% of textiles are synthetic. This, too, has opened the door for microplastic to pollute every corner of the Earth. 

With this clever microfibre filter kit, you can help reduce this pollution. So, every time you filter water when doing laundry, you’re doing something good for the planet and your health.  

PlanetCare washing machine filter is the first and only solution that stops 90% of microfibers and takes care of the whole cycle for a completely closed loop.

Buy Land Plant Trees

At the core of Chimney Sheep is our Community Interest Company, Buy Land Plant Trees (BLPT). For every purchase you make with us, 20% of the profit facilitates the planting of trees on agriculturally poor land in Cumbria.

We set up BLPT in 2019 as a ‘boots on the ground’ tree planting initiative. The company is run by us and the tree planting is done by us. We do it to help you and us to reduce our impact on the planet. The trees we plant reduce CO2 output as well as contribute to the reduction of flooding and the creation of habitats for wildlife.

BLPT isn’t a tick box exercise nor a distant and detached carbon offset company. In fact, this is as much part of our business as the products we sell and is an integral part of our ethos. We are big believers in the phrase ‘think globally, act locally’ and want to make a genuine difference

Easy to use, long-lasting

I was concerned it would be difficult to fit but it went in easily. The filters last for ages, maybe I don't do enough laundry but it will take me ages to get through all the cartridges that came with the kit. I try to just buy clothes made of sustainable fabrics but you can't help having some synthetic fabrics in there and it's good to know I'm not responsible for microfibres washing into the ocean.

Easy to fit and they work

An essential product if you care about the not so easily seen pollution we all emit.
