Microplastic Catching Laundry Ball – Cora Ball
Laundry drainage is a major source of microfiber pollution in our waterways, streams, creeks, lakes, and oceans. By one estimate, each cycle of a washing machine releases more than 700,000 microscopic plastic fibers into the environment.
The Cora Ball both catches fibers in washing machine water and reduces the amount of fibers released from fabric in the wash - which can increase the life of your garments and home textiles! Plus, Cora Ball is made responsibly in Vermont from materials that would have otherwise ended up in the landfill.
Cora Ball swooshes around in the laundry and just like coral, allows water to flow, while picking up those little pieces of microfiber and catching them in her stalks. Independent tests investigating the effectiveness of the Cora Ball out of Dr. Chelsea Rochman’s lab at the University of Toronto (McIlwraith 2019) and University of Plymouth (Napper 2020) showed the Cora Ball prevents 26% and 31% of microfibers from flowing down the drain respectively.
