From "Plastics: a double-edged sword:"
The seemingly magical gift of plastic came with a double-edged sword filled with the potential to destroy life as it is currently known on Earth.
In less than seventy years, humans managed to infiltrate the Earth with micro and nanoplastics from discarded single-use and durable products in literally every nook and cranny, ranging from the arctic snow caps to the depths of the oceans and everywhere in between.
It is time to shift perspectives from human-focused to life-focused and let the Earth show us how to heal the damage inflicted. Answers will come to those who live and take action from the heart.
Additionally, the Nanoplastics article includes the following new sections:
- Plastics at the beach - showcases how readily available durable and single-use plastic items are common place during beach enjoyment.
- Beyond litter, cigarette butts are plastic pollution - explains how cigarette filters are made of cellulose acetate, a plastic.
- Ei Exploration of Fungi, Soil Health & World Hunger - gives an overview of the empowering October 2018 exploration.
- COVID-19 plastic pollution - explains how the recent pandemic resulted in a new surge in plastic pollution.
