BAMBOO MANTA / Laundry ball


Every time we use our washing machines, our clothing is breaking up, sending this microfiber out with the drain water. The Bamboo manta is a new kind of laundry ball. Inspired by the way manta ray filters for food, the Bamboo manta prevents microfiber from breaking off our clothes and collects our microfibers into the loofah inside the ball, so we can dispose of microfibers in the right way. Bamboo and loofah material is 0 impact for the nature and recyclable.
