Plastic Soup Foundation
The agricultural sector is one of the largest contributors of microplastics pollution, due to the intentional use of microplastics in agricultural products such as fertilizers, pesticides and coated seeds. Some of these microplastics will find their way to ditches, channels, rivers and the ocean, and some will remain in the soil, where they can cause harm to the ecosystem or even migrate into the food chain.
The Plastic Soup Foundation is conducting a research study to quantify atmospheric microplastics in the proximity of agricultural lands, to investigate human microplastic exposure.
