Laundry day comes to us all. Whether you dread it or find the smell of clean clothes relaxing, laundry is a part of life. It may seem like nothing more than another box on your to-do list. But did you know that you can make a real difference for the environment with every load? It’s as simple as tossing in a Cora Ball.
Cora Balls prevent microfibers from entering the water cycle. Microfibers break free from synthetic fabric during washing—and if they escape, marine creatures often ingest them and become sick. The Cora Ball’s design mimics the way coral reefs filter the ocean. When you add it to your laundry routine, the Cora Ball collects microfibers into fuzz you can see and dispose of properly.
How To Use
Add your CoraBall to your washer and let its unique design do the rest. It’s an easy step that has a big impact for our planet.
Use CoraBall when you wash your everyday clothing. Please separate out delicates, knits, fine fabrics, or anything with tassels or thin straps. They may tangle in the CoraBall and become damaged.
If any clothing does tangle in your CoraBall, gently unwrap it from the stalks. In most cases, the fabric will be fine.
Clean your CoraBall like you clean a hairbrush—pull out lint and fuzz you can see and throw it in the trash. (We’re still working on a way to reuse it. Until then, treat it like you do your dryer lint.)
More About Microfibers
Microfibers are in the same family of pollution as microplastics (particles of plastic that are smaller than 5mm in length). Much of our clothing is made with synthetic fibers. When we wash synthetic fabrics, these fibers break free and escape into wastewater streams. Filtration systems fail to catch most of these microfibers. Unfortunately, this allows microfiber pollution to ultimately end up in our water systems where it causes problems for wildlife. To learn more about microplastics and microfibers Click Here.
