Microplastics

Plastic in our bodies

Protect yourself and the following generations

 

Do you actually know that every day you are passing tiny little plastic particles, so-called microplastics, through the air, your clothes, your food and even via the water ingest? This is the result of a global study called "No Plastics in Nature: Assessing Plastic Ingestion from Nature to People", conducted at the University of Newcastle Australia and commissioned by WWF.

This is an average of as much plastic per week as a credit card weighs (approx. 5g). This is not only worrying, but also potentially harmful to our health. We unconsciously ingest up to 2000 small pieces of plastic every week. Unconsciously?

It is no secret that we produce too much plastic waste - it is an essential part of our everyday lives. High consumption and the resulting waste is the reason why too much plastic ends up uncontrolled in nature and thus in the cycle. It is spread across national borders by rivers, the air and rain. And of course these small particles get into the groundwater.

What can we do against microplastics?

 

For one thing, we can all reduce the ever-growing consumption of plastic waste and make it sustainable by using alternative materials that do not harm the environment. For example, refrain from buying plastic water bottles and products that are excessively packaged in plastic. In addition, you can reduce plastic waste by Purchase of a high-quality water filter system also improve the quality of your tap water. By filtering tap water, you give microplastic particles no chance.
