Did you know that the simple chore of washing your clothes affects sea life? Most people have clothes that are made of some sort of synthetic material such as polyester or nylon. There are millions of microfibers that are released when washing clothing that go into our waterways. When the microfibers reach the sea they are ingested by fish and in turn ingested by us. These microfibers are so small we can't even see them. Cora Ball, however, is a solution to this issue. The team that designed the Cora Ball was inspired by the natural filtering ability of coral in the sea. It is made from recycled rubber and is designed to capture the microfibers that are washed off your clothes before they are passed into the waterways. The company says that "If 10% of US households use a Cora Ball, we can keep the plastic equivalent of over 30 million water bottles from washing into our public waterways every year. That is enough water bottles to reach from New York City to London.” Cora Ball is an excellent solution to the microfiber problem, another solution is to buy natural clothing, not synthetic fabrics!
