Microplastics are small plastics less than 5mm. Primary microplastic comes from pellet spills (nurdles), textile (microfibers), paint, cosmetic and vehicle tyre dust. Secondary microplastic comes from large plastic waste that has broken down into smaller pieces.
TYPES OF Microplastics
Why is this a problem?
Toxins accumulate in the environment.
Further fragmentation of the plastics occur.
Mistaken as food, these particles then enter the food chain.
These particles then affect us and wildlife in general.
