This is insane 😩😱 . It's raining plastic -- that's what a survey of rainfall in Denver and Boulder, Colorado, concluded recently. . The rainfall survey, titled "It is raining plastic," was put together by scientists at the US Department of the Interior and US Geological Survey. . They couldn't see the plastic with their naked eyes, but found it using a binocular microscope fitted with a digital camera. They found plastic showed up in 90% of the samples, mostly in fiber form, and came in a variety of colors. Blue was most prevalent, followed by red, silver, purple, green, yellow and other colors, the study says.” @cnn . Our world needs help 😩 Spread the awareness 💕
Is bioplastic the solution to all our plastic woes? The short answer is no. Most bio-based plastics available on the market are actually a combination of plant or animal organic matter AND fossil fuels. Manufacturers often mix plastic resins with organic material (with the percentage of fossil fuels around 20% for PET plastics used in packaging) without having to declare the oil content in their products. And, since you’re unlikely to be able to take your biodegradable plastics to an industrial composter (where they’ll actually be able to break down), it will either stay in your compost heap for years, or join most other rubbish and end up in landfills, incinerators or as litter in the environment or the sea – adding to the plastic pollution problem.
