We’ve reached a dangerous turning point on this planet. Microplastics are literally raining from the sky, according to a recent report published in the journal Nature Geoscience. This is no longer a problem, it’s an epidemic.
Microscopic pieces of plastic have seeped into our waterways, oceans, food, drinking water, and now, the air we breathe. Each piece of plastic that ends up in a landfill or water source slowly breaks down, shedding tiny pieces of plastic into our ecosystems. Plastic is harming the natural world. Plants and animals are already experiencing the negative effects of our disposable lifestyle. Now is the time to create change.
