Microplastics found in human blood for first time

Plastic do not belong in the nature, ocean or in us.

New research shows up to 80% of people have plastic in their blood. The scientists analysed blood samples from 22 anonymous donors, all healthy adults and found plastic particles in 17. Half the samples contained PET plastic, which is commonly used in drinks bottles, while a third contained polystyrene, used for packaging food and other products. A quarter of the blood samples contained polyethylene, from which plastic carrier bags are made.

In addition, more than 386 fish species have ingested plastic and up to 1 million seabirds are killed by plastic each year. Furtermore, studies show that 52% of all sea turtles have eaten plastic.


Let's make our seas plastic-free and take care of the planet, animals and ourselves.

You can make a measurable and documented difference here and now.
