It’s hard to think about what happens to the plastics in our gadgets if they aren’t recycled properly. The plastics we throw away eventually breaks down into something called micro plastics. These are tiny pieces of plastic the size of a grain of sand; eventually, over time these work their way into our rivers and oceans.
It was estimated by 2050 there will be more plastics in our ocean than there are fish. When you consider most fish will be digesting these micro plastics before ending up on our plate; it’s important to see why recycling your gadgets is important.
