This product contains recyclable materials. It may be recyclable with curbside recycling collections, but might need to be sent to a special recycling facility. Contact your local waste-hauler or recycling facility for details. Appropriate facilities may not exist in your area.

Sustainable Lifestyle

This product helps promote a more sustainable lifestyle. Whether it encourages re-use and the movement away from disposable products, or it promotes sustainable actions like recycling and composting, this product can help you lower your environmental footprint.

Recycled Plastic

Recycled plastic utilizes salvaged post-industrial plastic scraps and post-consumer products such as water bottles and other plastic containers, and transforms them into new products. The containers are sorted, crushed, and then heated to form resins, which are liquid plastics that can harden into new shapes. These resins can be molded and used to create anything from carpet to outdoor furniture. Recycling plastic lowers the amount of petroleum extracted and the production of greenhouse gasses associated with first-time plastic production. Plus, by using these existing materials, we’re benefiting from the original energy and resources spent to create them in the first place, while diverting waste from the landfill.

100% Recycled Content

Recycling is the process of taking an otherwise-discarded item or material and cleaning, sorting, and breaking it down into its basic form (such as fibers or pellets). This material is then used to produce new items. Recycling keeps useful materials from being discarded in landfills, prevents resource extraction due to the creation of new materials, and provides a new life for used items. Recycling can utilize both pre-consumer waste (materials left over from production) or post-consumer materials (used clothing, empty water bottles, etc). This product is made from 100% recycled content.

Did you know that every time you do your laundry, your synthetic clothes release hundreds of thousands of microfibers (tiny plastic and chemical coated fibers) that eventually end up in our waterways? It's even estimated that NYC alone has 6.8 BILLION microfibers flowing into its harbor each day. Cora Ball knew this problem had to be addressed at the source (us!) โ€“- which inspired their easy-to-use laundry ball that catches the microfibers that naturally shed from clothes in the wash. Made froRead Morem 100% recycled plastic, and recyclable after you enjoy it for years, the Cora Ball works by trapping and securing threads in its "spindles" that can be easily cleaned as microfibers collect. Make an impact on ocean pollution with Cora Ball!

  • If 10% of US households use a Cora Ball, it can keep the plastic equivalent of over 30 million water bottles from washing into our public waterways every year... that's enough water bottles to reach from NYC to London!

Product Specifications

Product Care

  • To use, just toss it in your washer to start catching microfibers! Although Cora Ball is very gentle, we recommend washing delicates, fine fabrics, lace & tassels separately so they don't get caught in the Cora Ball.
  • How fast you will see fuzz in your Cora Ball depends on water temperature, type of clothes, lifestyle, detergent type, and washer mode!
  • To clean: when you can visibily see tangles of fibers & hairs, move the stalks of the Cora Ball to the side and pinch the tangles to pull them out easily. Dispose of fibers in your trash bin.

Additional Features

  • Micro-fiber catching laundry ball stops microplastics, threads, and pollution from entering our waterways
  • Made from 100% recycled materials and recyclable
  • Easy to clean and lasts for years


  • For most homes, one Cora Ball will get the job done. For families or larger washing machines, we recommend up to 3 Cora Balls.

About the Company

Cora Ball

Microplastics or microfibers are the teeny tiny particles that are polluting our waterways at a concerning rate. Surprisingly enough, these particles most often originate from your washing machine. Clothing that contains synthetic fibers such as nylon, polyester, rayon, acrylic, or spandex, are essentially plastic and shed particles each time we wash them! This microfiber pollution ends up being eaten by ocean animals and then, in turn, ends up on our plates. Cora Ball was founded by underwater archaeologist and marine scientist Rachel Miller and offers a human-scale solution to a global issue. Cora Ball is the first ever microfiber catching laundry ball. Inspired the way coral filters the ocean water from foreign particles, Cora Ball mimics that behaviour and catches all the bad microplastic particles from your clothing before they make it to the water. The ball works in any washing machine. You simply throw it in with your laundry and it will catch microfibers as well as hair to prevent them from flowing out with the drain water. Once the laundry is done, you clean Cora like you clean a hairbrush, taking out the bits of fuzz and putting them in the trash. The best part? The ball itself if made from 100% recycled plastic. So you can maximize your impact one laundry load at a time.

    It’s hard to really tell if this is working or not, but it makes me feel better that I’m doing something at least, although I might just get a filter to attach to our washer instead.

    It's better than nothing!

    I prefer guppy bags but I like to use the cora ball when I can’t use the bags (like when washing items with metal buttons, zippers, etc that could puncture a bag). I’ve used it a few times and don’t see fibers yet but I know you don’t necessarily see them quickly.

    Coraball is ok

    kryssi.mcdowall (verified owner)

    A coraball is great for what it is and it works just like it says it does. But it only takes roughly 30% of the microplastics from the wash. That’s better than nothing. But if you really want to stop microplastics, there are filters that attach to washing machines and take aroung 90% of the microplastics. I’ve since bought one of these and will give my coraball to a friend

    Not sure if itโ€™s working

    Kate (verified owner)

    I got this in December for Christmas and itโ€™s now May and I think itโ€™s mostly just catching my hair and bra straps. I never see anything else in there

    Captures some stuff but seems to miss most of it

    Kira Boyle

    I’ve been using it since I received the Kickstarter product (early 2018)? Finally got around to cleaning it for a second time today, and sure there’s some stuff in there, not I’m not sure it’s actually doing much of anything. I don’t own any wool sweaters, so maybe that’s why it doesn’t appear to be catching stuff for me. I’ve had clogged washer filters twice due to fuzz and dog hair, even whilst using the product (admittedly, one of those times was due to a sock). If it’s only meant to catch “microscopic” fibers, what is it really helping if the large fibers enter the waterways anyway? It’s a great idea for a product, and I really want to like it, I just don’t feel like it’s doing much. It holds up very well over the years though.

    Love the idea. Have used even with cat hair and have only found one hair. Lots in the dryer? Will continue to use. Have read could take 10-20 loads to see anything?

      Hello Earth Hero, are you recommending allowing accumulation and does that mean to not rinse it all the time? Or how often? Thank you and looking forward to purchasing a Cora ball.
