Plastic has become the bane of our world. It has polluted soil, air, and water bodies, including oceans, and created massive landfills in cities and towns comprising solely of plastic. The situation has become so bad that researchers have found microplastics floating in the sea breeze and evening raining down on mountains and national parks.
The Plastic Rain
In a recent study, researchers found that in America West, the untouched areas of national parks have not only the presence of microplastics in the air but also approximately 1,000 tons of microplastics fall in these areas in the form of plastic rain.
Bryce Canyon, Joshua Tree National Park, and the Grand Canyon are few of the areas where the untouched lands have microplastics in the air. Researchers state that about one-fourth of the microplastics enter the national parks from the cities in the vicinity of the parks while the remaining waft through the air from faraway places.
During the study, researchers collected air and rainwater samples for nearly 14 months in the American West. They found that 98% of the samples had the presence of microplastics, which are under 5mm in length.
Microplastics are minuscule pieces of larger plastic that are present in landfills and garbage dumps. When pieces break from the larger ones, they end up in the atmosphere, water bodies, and soil. The plastic fragments in the atmosphere are responsible for plastic rain, which has become a reality in most parts of the world. Since plastic takes a long time to degrade, microplastics are here to stay and pollute the environment and adversely affect plants and animals.
The Way Forward
June 5 has been declared as the World Environment Day. The UN via its environment program is trying to dissuade people from using single-use plastic bottles while A Plastic Planet has called for people to give up plastic for one single day. Many other organizations too are creating awareness to help people reduce plastic usage or completely do away with it.
