Cora Ball - Microfiber Collecting Laundry Ball
WE ARE EATING OUR CLOTHING
Every time we do laundry, our clothes shed tiny, unseen microfibers (including plastic), which go down the drains of our washing machines and into our waterways (these microfibers shed off all synthetic clothing, not just Ungalli). That’s not great for the animals living in those waters, or for us.
The Cora Ball is a new kind of laundry ball. Inspired by the way coral filters the ocean, the Cora Ball collects our microfibers into fuzz we can see, so we can dispose of microfibers in the right way. Together, we keep these microfibers out of our waterways and our ocean. Yes! Just toss the Cora Ball into your washer. It's a simple step that has a big impact wash after wash.
HOW THE CORA BALL WORKS
Most washing machines do not have filters. The ones that do are only good to keep keys and coins from clogging your pipes. A standard filter cannot do what needs to be done: catch fibers too small for the human eye to see AND allow water flow.
So, we turned to nature. Coral does exactly what we need; it catches tiny things from flowing water. Using those same principles in the design of the Cora Ball, you can now just drop, or throw it into your washing machine and do your wash as usual. It is easy to use and easy to clean.
Cora 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.
