As the conversation surrounding climate change and pollution continues, we can admit we’ve made some mistakes and have done some damage over the years. What we didn’t realize is how widespread the damage is. New research shows that that pollution particles are traveling as far as the Arctic. Scientists have recently found varnish (which is rubber found in tires) and other rubber fragments that would most likely have come from fabrics or packaging, in the Arctic. Bad news, this means that these microplastics and fibers are airborne.
