During seven years of research and development, the Rozalia Project took inspiration directly from coral in designing the Cora Ball. The Cora Ball collects up to 35 percent of the microfibers that come off clothing in each load of laundry. Such microfibers are smaller than red bloods cells and once in public waterways, are eaten by marine life. Not only that, the majority of clothing worn in the United States is made from plastics, not natural fibers.
