Well, that’s a look through the microscope at water from our very own Ottawa River.
Those are micro-beads and micro-plastics which come from many of our sundry hair-care and skin care products.
The fish are eating this and we are all becoming part plastic. Sound toxic? Keep this up and we’ll all soon be full on Gumby.
Personally (just my opinion here) I think we over fixate on our dirty skies while we really need to concentrate on our dirty water.
Glad the Ottawa Riverkeepers are there to keep an eye on this for us! They are fantastic.
