We all know that plastics are polluting the ocean, its a fact not an opinion, but now the air? Researchers in France found a ton of plastic particles in the air, raining down from the sky. These particles are so small you can't even see most of them, although some can travel through the air as large as a poppy seed. They can also be as dense as over 11 thousand particles in a square meter. These two factors combined is what makes this so potentially dangerous. These tiny bits of airborne plastics are created by any normal everyday use plastic items from water bottles, to even eye contacts. Even those little pouches of plastic beads to preserve food or keep bugs out creates small particulates in the air for us to breath in. Because most plastic is so light in weight, the air could be polluted wherever wind and water is potentially. Do they do damage to people? Well that is kinda difficult to say considering many humans have not been tested on heavily yet. Breathing anything in that's not normal air can't be healthy for you, let alone plastic! The micro plastic particles have been found to hurt animals like sea creatures, and different insect by blocking their intestines up. It's proving to be more and more dangerous every single day that it's not only the large pieces of plastic hurting our environments, plastic on the microscopic scale are just as big of a deal.
Do you think that this is an issue we should be tackling or is it just a waste of time, and resources?
