Microplastics – TROP TARD
- Size less than 5mm
- Present absolutely everywhere
- Unable to collect once in the environment
Where do they come from:
- Primary microplastics:
Produced directly in the form of microparticles.
0.95 million tonnes are produced each year, including:
270,000 tonnes come from tyre wear
230,000 tonnes come from plastic balls
190,000 tonnes come from textiles after washing synthetic clothing in the washing machine.
- Secondary microplastics linked to plastic fragmentation.
The decomposition of marine plastic waste is one of them.
This is where we can act … before the plastics are fragmented!
