It’s Raining Plastic

A USGS research chemist has found microplastics in rainwater in locations ranging from a community garden in Arvada to a site 10,000 feet above sea level in Rocky Mountain National Park.

“I thought maybe I should look at these under a microscope. And when I did, uh, I was a little shocked by the amount of plastic that I saw in them … chunks of blue, orange, pink, you name it.”
