CNN calls it “colorful.”
If I had written this article I would have used the word “TOXIC” instead of colorful.
Rubber tires wear off when we drive, and the
microparticles go airborne. We then breathe it, and it comes back down with the rain.... lands on every surface of the earth even on nice sunny days.
Clothes in the washing machine break off invisible micro plastic fibers that go away with the wastewater and find their way into the oceans. Billions of gallons each day. Tons of plastic each day that works it’s way into the food chain- that WE EAT!
Plastic water bottles dissolve micro particles as well as carcinogenic chemicals that we gulp happily along with the water. Wonder why our population is getting sicker?
Even toothpaste contains microplastic beads beads that give the paste it’s “body” and consistency (I bet you did not know that). I use “Tom’s of Maine” and am trying to see if they use plastic beads in their toothpaste.
Escaping the use of plastic??? Virtually impossible.
Just be aware, and try try try to curtail using any type of plastic for anything...
GOOD LUCK, I’ve tried. No Bueno.
