Abstract

Microplastic is a global environmental problem which has the power to threaten marine life as well as freshwater organisms for decades and centuries, and the potential to poison the entire food chain.Though it needs global research, policy and technological change to decontaminate the environment from microplastic pollution, however,we can always take action to minimize the contribution.Consumers can limit their personal contributions to microplastic pollution by avoiding products that contain microbeads, choosing clothing made from natural fibers, avoid single use plastic products and taking care not to litter or flush plastic materials down the drain.
