what is microplastic contamination?
Microplastics are tiny pieces of plastic (smaller than a grain of sand), which can be found everywhere. Microplastics are contained in many cosmetic and non-cosmetic products, such as soaps, anti-aging products and even inside toothpaste! Many industries put them into their products to change their consistency. All these products, due to their small size, are not filtered in sewage treatment plants and end up right in our waters! Furthermore, the microplastics act as a sponge and absorb all the chemical agents that surround them, thus becoming very dangerous.
