Thought you care about waste, one or two? Plastic waste floating in our seas and rivers is a significant issue affecting current generations as well as possible.
To many people the first thing that comes to mind when they think about microplastics is the tiny beads used in certain soaps and other personal care items. Yet microplastics often hold pieces of what once were larger objects.
Another problematic type of microplastic is microfibers, shed from synthetic clothing or fishing nets. Such pieces of fibres, beads and microplastics will all absorb toxic contaminants such as pesticides, dyes, and flame retardants, only to release them later into the ocean.
