Here at Ecologistics we are really concern about the worldwide problem we are having with plastic. It is clear that no one is doing anything to stop using plastic.
One of the main problems we are facing now is that we are eating plastic, coming from the salt we use. We just want to point out some important facts we got from National Geographic:
Studies found microplastics in the sea salt several years ago, but now researchers from South Korea and Greenpeace East Asia shows that microplastics are found in almost all of commercial sea salt brands (90% of the brands). Salt samples from countries in Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia were analysed.
The density of microplastics found in salt varied dramatically among different brands, but those from Asian brands were especially high, the study found. The highest quantities of microplastics were found in salt sold in Indonesia.
The new study estimates that the average adult consumes approximately 2,000 microplastics per year through salt. What that means remains a mystery.
