A recent shocking study just revealed that over 94% of US water contains plastic microparticles.
(Sadly, we came in behind even India and Lebanon…)
Even several of the bottled water brands that were tested were shown to contain the same plastic. The report goes on to say:
Almost 300m tonnes of plastic is produced each year and, with just 20% recycled or incinerated, much of it ends up littering the air, land and sea. A report in July found 8.3bn tonnes of plastic has been produced since the 1950s, with the researchers warning that plastic waste has become ubiquitous in the environment.
“We are increasingly smothering ecosystems in plastic and I am very worried that there may be all kinds of unintended, adverse consequences that we will only find out about once it is too late,” said Prof Roland Geyer, from the University of California and Santa Barbara, who led the study.”
While we work on a solution to the larger problem, let’s at least make sure this stuff isn’t going into our bodies.
(Kudos to Adam’s alma mater UC Santa Barbara for leading the way on this important issue!)
