Tap Water Samples From Nations Around The World Are Contaminated With Plastic Fibres – Collective Evolution

A new investigation conducted by Orb Media, who shared their findings exclusively with The Guardian, had tap water samples from more than a dozen nations around the world analyzed by scientists, and they found that a shocking 83 percent of the samples were contamiated with plastic fibres.

The scientists discovered that European nations had the lowest contamination rate. Despite that, it was still high at 72%. European nations that were tested include the UK, Germany and France.

On the other hand, the US had the highest rate of contamination, at a staggering 94%. Plastic fibres were found in the drinking water of Trump Tower in New York, the US Environmental Protection Agency’s headquarters, and at multiple other sites, including Congress buildings.
