Microplastics & The Mediterranean Sea

Plastics have an essential role in everyday life, but despite that, they pose a potential health risk for both humans and the environment. Plastics in dimensions of less than 5 mm are named microplastics (MPs), which can be deliberately added to product (e.g., cosmetics) or can be formed when plastics of a larger size break down (e.g., from plastic litter in the seas).
