Micro Plastic Deadliest Trash Collected At Beach Cleanups
Micro plastic is the most items collected at beach cleanups and it what is harming our marine wildlife. Micro Plastic is everywhere in city streets, down street drains, rivers, on beaches, and floating everywhere in our ocean. Many scientist are saying microplastics are a macro problem says Richard Thompson from Santa Barbara University of California. 5 mm in diameter, which includes particles as small as 10 nanometres is the size of micro plastic and anything larger is a plastic fragment that will break down with time.
The round plastic bead or resin pellet pollution is a type of marine debris originating from plastic manufacturing larger scale plastic products. The resin pellet is referred to as nurdles that has been released into the environment and once a plastic water bottle.
