  • Choose "plastic-free" packaging when available 
  • Join a Clean Up Event

Microplastics. What are they?

Tiny particles of plastic, less than 5 millimeters in size, that are by-products of broken down/degraded larger pieces of plastic.

What's the big deal?

  • These particles can be inhaled and ingested through the air we breathe and the food we eat. This phenomenon is linked to severe health issues 
  • Endocrine disruption (ex. hormone regulation), weight gain, insulin resistance, decreased reproductive health, and even cancer. 
  • There is still much to be understood but we need to take action NOW to move towards a more "Plastic Free" lifestyle.
