Freshwater and natural ecosystems are being heavily affected by large amounts of microplastics in the water.
Microplastics are small pieces of plastic that measure less than 1/4 of an inch. These are normally created from every day items that humans use (most toiletries and cosmetics). These microplastics enter by making their way through ineffective filters at wastewater treatment plants.
These microplastics can take a toll on your health and well-being, which is why organizations are trying to address this issue. Our friends at Envirosight are always thinking one step ahead. Want to make sure you can avoid adding microplastics to your wastewater? Read more HERE for the full blog from Envirosight.
