Did you know that plastic decomposes within 500 - 1000 years? This means that, first of all, rather than the plastic decomposed entirely, our planet will simply “sink” in such waste. There is an idea of ​​how “micro plastic” is small pieces of plastic that come across almost everywhere. The presence of micro-plastic in the ponds gives rise to great excitement. Its presence in the oceans, rivers and other bodies of water is increasing dramatically every day, this adversely affects not only the flora and fauna of water bodies, but also those who drink such water, thereby acquiring a dose of microplastic for the body. Ice checks in the Arctic confirmed the presence of plastic in it.
The first time micro plastic was found a long time ago - back in 1971, microbiologist Ed Carpenter discovered snow-white spots in the Sargasso Sea. After a detailed check, it turned out that these are small parts of plastic. The scientist was shocked by the fact that he found pieces of plastic - in the center of the vast Atlantic Ocean.
The scientist Mark Brown came to such conclusions, which revealed particles of plastic in the blood of mussels. The use of plastic products by the people and its incorrect processing directly spoils the inhabitants of reservoirs and the people themselves.
