Microplastics are a growing problem for humans and ocean life. Microplastics are pieces of plastic that are smaller than 5 mm in length. These are plastic particles you cant see and can pose hazards to human health and the environment. They can be absorbed different ways but most commenly through ingestion.

?Do you use non plastic water bottles?
Health risks: Microplastics are small plastic particles that can be ingested by humans and animals, potentially leading to health problems such as inflammation, organ damage, and reproductive issues.
Environmental impact: Microplastics can harm marine life and ecosystems, as they can accumulate in the food chain and cause harm to animals that ingest them.
Water treatment challenges: Microplastics can be difficult to remove from drinking water, and they can be found in many water sources.

To minimize the risks associated
with bottled water and microplastics in drinking water, it is recommended to reduce plastic waste by using reusable water bottles and to filter tap water using a high-quality Reverse Osmosis filter. The finest stage of the RO process is the semi permeable meaning only pure water can penetrate membrane filters to 0.0001 Micron rejecting up to 99.9% of microplastics and all other contaminants.
It is also important to properly recycle plastic waste and to support policies and initiatives that promote sustainable water management practices.
