世界膠粒污染問題

其他  

以為凈得香港飽受膠粒困擾?少年,你太天真了。根據環研機構5 Gyres嘅調查發現,而家北美五大湖嘅塑料微粒量平均已經達每平方公里43000個,含量高過全世界絕大多數海洋!其中伊利湖嘅污染最嚴重,塑料微粒量竟然佔五大湖嘅九成咁多呀!佢哋個環研總監Marcus曾經喺湖入面捉到條紡綞鰤,解剖後發現胃部充斥咗17粒塑膠。試諗下,如果人類食咗呢啲魚,分分鐘就等於食返自己揼嘅垃圾,你都咪話唔得人驚!

Plastic pellet pollution is a problem that is not just specific to Hong Kong – other regions of the world are affected as well. Research performed by the environmental group the 5 Gyres Institute has found particularly high levels of microbeads in the Great Lakes region, with an average of 43,000 particles per square kilometre. This is higher than most oceans worldwide. The highest concentration of pellet pollution was found in Lake Erie, where 90 per cent of all the found plastics were located. Marcus Eriksen, Research Director of the 5 Gyres Institute, once caught a Rainbow Runner with 17 plastic particles in its gut! One day soon, we may be eating our own trash when we consume these “plastic fish”.
