In this video, we’re going to talk about the good and bad news about plastic pollution.

The bad news about plastic pollution is that there is a lot of plastic in our environment. There were about 100 million metric tons of plastic in the environment as of 2016—there’s likely far more than this amount today.

Every year, there are 8 million tons of plastic dumped in the oceans—mostly from rivers that lead to our oceans.

We all swallow and breath two thousand tiny pieces of plastic every week, which measures out to be around 5 grams of plastic. This is the equivalent of a credit card… EVERY WEEK!

The most common foods and drinks that contain plastic are:
• Water
• Shellfish
• Salt
• Beer

There are seven different types of plastic commonly used in products today. On most plastic products, you will find a triangle that indicates a type of plastic using a number between 1 and 7.

There is some good news about plastic pollution. In 2016, a group of researchers in Japan found that certain types of bacteria are able to break down plastic. These bacteria degrade plastics using an enzyme called petase, and they use carbon from plastics as their primary energy source.

Scientists genetically modified these bacteria to break down plastic 90% faster. These bacteria can now break down 90% of plastic in 10 hours.

There are also other useful ocean cleanup technologies that can…
1. Isolate where the plastic is
2. Concentrate the plastic
3. Extract the plastic

There are certain ways you can support your body’s removal of plastic toxins…
• Take calcium-D-glucarate
• Increase cruciferous vegetables in your diet
• Increase sweating
• Filter your water
