MICRO-PLASTICS 2018-05-10T13:21:17+00:00

Project Description

We use 320,000,000 tonnes of new plastic in europe every single year.

Tyre dust makes up the largest share of micro-plastics entering the ocean. Natural rubber tyres have been replaced by synthetic rubber (or plastic) and we use 50,000,000 tyres in the UK every year. Whilst driving, tyres wear down and the synthetic rubber micro-plastic flakes run straight from the road into the ocean.
