Microplastics: A Danger to the World Environment and Human Health

A study of microplastics in the Great Lakes in North America published in September 2016 provides additional evidence that polyester fibers in clothing pose a previously unacknowledged risk to the environment and human health. Researchers looked for microplastic particles (0.33 to 1 mm) in samples of water, and the most common forms found were plastic microfibers from clothes, diapers and cigarette butts.
