Microplastics in Air

Introduction

Air is a critical pathway for the transportation of microplastics. With their small size and low density, these particles can travel great distances and are found on mountain tops, artic glaciers, and remote deserts. This infographic is designed to educate the reader on the impacts of airborne microplastics including where they originate and how they are transported as well as suggesting solutions to reduce the effects that these particles can have on environmental and human health.
