Un estudio publicado a finales de 2017 en Nature concluyó que la sal de mesa contiene microplásticos. Los investigadores tomaron muestras de sal de mesa comprada en 8 países entre los que estaban EEUU, Reino Unido, Francia o España. A pesar de la presencia relativamente bien documentada de microplásticos en los productos del mar, poco se sabe acerca de su presencia en productos abióticos. El sodio es un elemento esencial para el cuerpo humano y se consume principalmente como sal común. Las sales comerciales marinas y lacustres se producen a través de la cristalización como resultado de la evaporación del agua bajo los efectos combinados del calor y el viento. En las muestras analizadas, el 41.6% de las partículas fueron confirmadas como polímeros plásticos, el 23.6% eran pigmentos, el 29.1% partículas no identificadas y el 4% partículas no plásticas. Los polímeros plásticos encontrados fueron: 40%  polipropileno, 33.3% polietileno, 6.66% tereftalato de polietileno, 6.66% poliestireno, 10% poliacrilonitrilo y 3.33% poliamida-6 ( nylon-6). Las partículas identificadas como pigmentos fueron ftalocianina (82,3%), amarillo cromo (5,88%), verde hostasol (5,88%) y azul hostaperm (5,88%). La ftalocianina y el azul hostaperm son pigmentos sintéticos que se usan ampliamente en la industria de plásticos. El verde hostasol se utiliza como agente colorante en las fibras poliacrílicas que se introducen principalmente en el medio marino mediante el lavado de la ropa después de pasar por las plantas depuradoras. El pigmento de cromato de plomo (amarillo) es un compuesto tóxico presente en pinturas plásticas debido a su alta resistencia a la luz y su bajo costo.  Los microplásticos pueden causar efectos adversos a los organismos que los ingieren al causar microlesiones o al liberar contaminantes que han absorbido durante su prolongada presencia en el mar. #sal #salt #microplastic #microfiber #pigment #plasticpollution #byebyestraws #marineconservation
When you drink, swim, breath.  In some years, #Microplastic and #Nanoplastic will get in your eyes, nose, throat, lungs, stomach, eventually your bloodstream, kidneys and brain, containing thousands of different toxins and chemicals.  Profiting on our demise, is of course @mcdonalds,@nestle, @starbucks, @unilever,@mondelez_international and all the other cororporations and companies that instead of just shifting to organic based plastic, insist the society should take all the burden with resycling. Resycling in general, is a dead end. For now. It works in some, industrialized countries, but it is too little, too slow. We haven't the time to make it work.  Most of the plastic that have entered nature, has entered the last ten years or so, up to 14 million tons a year And most of it has not Yet become microplastic. When that happens, we will see mass extinction both in the oceans and on land. A Plastic Storm.  So, pick more plastic and do all you can.  #activism#beachclean  #ageofextinction #extinctionisforever #riseaboveplastics #sustainability #ecofriendly#plasticsucks #plastickills #marinelife#washedashore #pickabag #5gyres#enviromentalawareness #worldchangers #pollution#greenliving #sustainable #cites #globalavareness#trashfreeearth #grabbits #pickabag #helpinghandfull #finditfillit #plasticfreeproduce#saynotoplasticbags
Voi jumanklavita ihmisen typeryyttä 😡😤😫😩 Ei ihan oikeasti voi ensin kerätä koiransa jätöksiä muovipussiin ja jättää sitten sitä pussia keskelle metsää. Vielä puron varteen! #meitäonmoneksi #idiotism #microplastic  #veinroskiin #olehyvä

Did you know that a healthy home also means you are naturally considering your impact on the environment at the same time?  There is a large movement around banning single use plastics - which is great - do we really need that plastic straw to drink out of?  Do we really need to take plastic cultery on a picnic.  Single use plastic is all about ease and convenience.  However, there is also another problem with microplastics ending up in our water, in our oceans, in the fish that we might ultimately consume.  I read an article a while ago about research that was done to find microbeads from our exfoliants, where in fact they found microplastics - coming from our clothing.  Two options to consider are to push for washing machine manufacturers to install good filtration on their products.  and when shopping for new clothes, consider what materials it is made from.  Polyester is basically a plastic, and everytime you wash it, small pieces break off and end up in the oceans, lakes and rivers.  Natural materials such as organic cotton, hemp or bamboo will still have pieces that break off, but will not hang around like plastic does for a lifetime and beyond.  And, natural fabrics are a much healthier option overall, not just in terms of plastic pollution and the impact on the environment. . . . . . . .  #microplastic #plasticpollution #plasticfree #polyester #saveouroceans #wellnessjourney #changinglives #healthyhome #healthykids #healthyliving #greenliving #chemicalfree #ecofriendly #lowtoxliving #organicliving #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #zerowaste #organic #green #sustainable #buildingbiology #buildingideology

We often venture out for extended hikes while beach cleaning... beaches around here are probably cleaner than many beaches in other parts of the world. 💚But there still plenty of litter. 👎So for those long hikes we decided to make a backpack from upcycled materials. ♻️Scrap materials from local manufacturer. ♻️Loving the fact that this pack is transparent... litter easily visible to passerby. Hopefully we will be able to raise some awareness of ocean pollution. 🌊🌎We utilized straps that we found on the beach as well. 🙂Anyway this is our first haul with this pack. . . . #beachclean #cleanbeach #plasticpollutes #plasticpollution #plasticfreecoastlines #beachcleanup #justgrabbits #upcycling #backpack #recycling #upcycled #savetheplanet #environment #2minutebeachclean #saveourseas #take3forthesea #marinedebris #take3forthesea #alaska #microplastic #litter #earthdayeveryday  #recycle #plasticsalmon #planetearth #5minutebeachcleanup

Sampah plastik mulai banyak ditemukan di perairan terpencil Artik Norwegia yang masih perawan. Demikian menurut tim peneliti the Norwegian Polar Institute yang mengkhawatirkan adanya konsentrasi potongan mikroplastik yang sangat besar di es laut itu. Sampah-sampah plastik itu ditemukan hampir di setiap bagian Artik yang diamati. Riset menunjukkan, sekitar 234 partikel ditemukan terkonsentrasi hanya dalam satu liter es laut Artik yang mencair, jauh lebih tinggi dibanding partikel dalam air samudra · Dijelaskan, es laut terbentuk mulai dari lapisan atas, membuat partikel plastik yang mengapung di permukaan menjadi terikat ke dalam es laut saat membeku. Peneliti belum memahami seberapa besar ancaman dari adanya partikel plastik tersebut, tapi dikhawatirkan akan berdampak pada makhluk hidup di Artik, jika partikel plastik terlepas saat es laut terus mencair · #klcbsscitech ·  #science #technology #trash #plastic #plastics #plastictrash #arctic #sea #norway #articsea #environment #saveearth #saveearthnow #earth #gogreen #microplastic
#repost @nomicroplastic ・・・ Three-quarters of the waste in the sea consists of #plastics, the mining of which takes centuries. An average of 13,000 plastic #waste particles are now floating on every square kilometre of #sea surface!  #noplastic #plasticfree #microplastic #plasticfreecoastlines #plasticfreeocean #savetheocean #saveourearth #saveplanetearth #plasticwaste #nowaste #oneocean #protectwhatyoulove #oceanlove #oceanwarriors #bethechange #bluesphere #missionblue #noocean #nolife #reuse #refuse #recycle

A couple of volunteers doing microplastic surveys.  Microplastics are plastics smaller than 5mm in size and include microbeads from cosmetics, fibres from synthetic materials and larger plastic items that have broken up into smaller pieces over time.  They are deadly to marine life who accidently ingest them and deadly to the health of our Ocean. #stemthetide #microplastic #marinedebris
It seems sooo far-fetched but how I wish it’s just an April Fool’s joke. But it’s not and it’s so fckng real. Such horror. #plasticworld #plasticsucks #savetheocean #saveourplanet  #zerowaste #reducereuserecycle #bringyourownbag  #repost @greenpeace_be with @get_repost ・・・ There are as many as 51 trillion #microplastic particles in the sea, 500 times more than the number of stars in our #galaxy. Humans can be such pesky neighbors. #saynotoplastic #greenpeace #stopplastic #reuce #reduce #recycle
