FAQs



All clothing sheds when washed, no matter its origin.

Synthetic fabrics like fleece, polyester and spandex are made from small plastic fibers. The fibers are woven into textiles and constructed into everything from activewear to blankets to stuffed animals. When washed, these garments shed plastic fibers that end up in our water supply, rivers and oceans where they do untold damage to our planet’s wildlife.

These microplastics, ingested by fish, crustaceans, and other aquatic life, circulate through their bodies and can end up on our dinner plates and even in out own bodies as a result.

The problem? Plastic can take hundreds of years to decompose.



Yemojá is a washing bag made from very fine nylon mesh that lets water and detergent pass through, but captures those plastic bits that naturally shed each time you wash your garment.

After several washings, you’ll begin to notice lint building up inside the corners and crevices of Yemojá—that means it’s working!



Keep it! Notify us when you have a meaningful amount saved up and we’ll send a postage-paid mailer in which to send us your collected microplastics. We’ll recycle it!



No! Yemojá is made from food-grade, monofilament nylon 6 (polyamide). Unlike polyester and other synthetic materials, which are made from polyfilament fibers, single-strand monofilament fiber is stronger and doesn't shed. Monofilament fiber is like a fishing line: super fine, super strong—nearly unbreakable—but hard and plasticy to the touch. Garments made from polyfilament fibers are like your favorite plush throw or activewear.
