According to research, every human is eating at least one lac plastic particles (micro plastic) in the year which is involved in this diet and this quantity is 21 grams per month and 250 grams per year.
But where is this plastic coming from?
According to the research, 80 million tonnes of plastic used on our ground and this plastic is going into sea. it contain plastic curved particles which are called micro plastic and It turns into smaller pieces and turns into nano particles and since they are very small, they pass through each type of filter plant very easily and mix in lakes, rivers and soil.
This plastic mixed in agriculture soil and later mixed in our vegetable, fruit while plastic going into sea become the food of fish and other sea creature.

Later, when these fishes reach our plate, they contain a number of plastic ingredients. Experts says that by 2050 our oceans will have more plastic than water and fish. According to the Greenpeace Netherlands 260 million tonnes of plastic is produced worldwide.
