We eat 250 gms/year plastic through diet !


‘People are ingesting 5 g of microplastic every week, equal in weight to a credit card’ 

Coming mostly from tap and especially bottled water, nearly invisible bits of polymer were also found in shellfish, beer and salt, scientists reported.

The findings, drawn from 52 peer-reviewed studies, are the first to estimate the sheer weight of plastics consumed by individual humans: about 250 g over the course of a year.
