Microplastics: Very small pieces of plastic that pollute the environment
Microplastics are very small pieces of plastic that pollute the environment. Microplastics are not a specific kind of plastic, but rather any type of plastic fragment that is less than five millimeters in length according to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). They enter natural ecosystems from a variety of sources, including, but not limited to, cosmetics, clothing, and industrial processes.
