A side of plastic with that?


Around 8 million tons of plastic are thrown into the sea every year. Once broken down, this plastic remains in the form of nanoscopic particles, called microplastics…

Microplastics are starting to contaminate the entire food chain, first by being ingested by fish. And it’s not only those who eat a lot of fish and seafood that need to worry.
These tiny particles have actually already been found in many other foods, such as salt, beer and honey. Even meat from animals fed on fish meal could contain microplastics.
Though we don’t yet know what effect this could have on our health, some studies have suggested that the smallest of these particles could cross the intestinal wall and thus spread around the body. In animals especially, microplastics damage the endocrinal system and harm reproductive capacities!
