A three-week international expedition collected ice samples from the Arctic.

It became known that it contained microparticles of plastic, which is visible in samples obtained from the depths of glaciers.

This suggests that the scale of planet pollution is increasing every day. This is the fault of people who do not care about our planet.

Microparticles were found in four places in the Lancaster Strait. By the way, this site is isolated. It is also protected from drifting plastic contaminants.

It is reported that this ice floe came through Greenland.

According to UN data, even in the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean, microplastics were discovered. By the way, this place is the deepest on Earth.
