We may not be able to see it, but microplastics are raining down from the sky all over the world. A recent study has found that microplastics are present in rain samples taken from multiple locations on earth, raising concern about the infiltration of plastic into the air, water and soil. These plastic particles spread through the atmosphere by wind and thermal movement and cause further environmental damage. We need to limit plastic pollution in all forms to take back control of our environment.
