Microplastics have already been found at the top of Mount Everest and at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. Now, they’ve been discovered in yet another alarming place: rain clouds. We didn’t need more evidence to convince us that something needs to change, but we have it anyway: Microplastics are literally raining down on us from the sky.
We’re working to ban the single-use plastics we just don’t need, call on major companies to use less plastic, shift the responsibility of dealing with all this plastic waste to the producers who design their plastic products to be discarded, and more. Donate today.
