An Inconvenient Truth from Gregg Treinish: "90 Percent of Every Liter of Water on Earth Has Plastic In It"

Men's Journal — Over the past four years, trained volunteers have collected over 2,400 water samples from around the world and delivered them to Gregg Treinish's group, Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation, which tested them for the presence of micro-plastics. The group found minute plastic particles and fibers in 74 percent, including 86 percent of the marine samples.
