    What are Microplastics?

    Microplastics are considered plastic particles 5mm (5000 microns) in size or less.  Plastic particles are in wide use in industries such as cosmetics, ion-exchangers in some water filtration systems, air blasting technology, tires, etc.  Microplastics are divided into two classes:  Primary microplastics are in their original form, and secondary microplastics are smaller pieces derived from breakdown of primary microplastics.  Microplastics have a very long degradation process that contributes to buildup in the environment.
