Microplastics – TROP TARD

Definition:

  • 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!
