Save The World From An Unseen Killer
The visible plastic floating in the ocean is just the tip of the iceberg.
Thousands of sea animals are absorbing polyester microfibers in what looks like clean water.
So are we. Here’s why.
Finer than an eyelash, polyester microfibers slip through washing machine filters into rivers and oceans where fish ingest them.
Hundreds of thousands of plastic fibers were released the last time you washed your yoga pants.
Our healthy lifestyles are killing our greatest natural resource: local waters.
DGI Has Developed a Solution
We have designed a filter, in partnership with zNano Water Tech, for commercial washing machines that capture up to 99% of those particles.
We’re washing the water clean.
Polyester, nylon, acrylic and other synthetic fibers –- all forms of plastic — are now about 60% of the material in our clothes. Plastic fibers we can’t see are leached into the environment. Once they enter the ocean’s food chain, they end up on our dinner plates.
At DGI we are focused on a variety of technologies and initiatives.
