Plastic rain in National Parks

Even the most isolated areas in the United States—national parks and national wilderness areas—accumulate microplastic particles after they are transported there by wind and rain. Estimates are that more than 1000 metric tons per year fall within the south and the central-western U.S. protected areas. Most of these plastic particles are synthetic microfibers used for making clothing.
