Have you ever heard about micro plastics? Well, they come from many of the products we daily use such as cosmetics and clothes. These micro pollutants are a silent enemy and they are causing adverse effects to the river and marine biota.
We were using those products without realizing the damage we were causing, but now that we know their negative effects it is our responsibility to take action. Some countries like Canada have already done so by banning and monitoring the chain of production and distribution of such plastic particles. Although these actions entangle many economical and social distresses they are essential for the protection of the living species.
So next time you go to the supermarket or shopping please bear in mind the environmental damage that these could cause and choose those bio-products free of harmful elements. Remember, all your waste will somehow return to your home through the food chain.
