Plas­tic Food

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.
