MARE MOSTRO: A PLASTIC MONSTER? – CAMPAIGN 2019

A project of particular interest is the “Mare Mostro: a plastic monster?” #StopMicroFibre”, campaign which aims to raise awareness of the problem of microplastics released by synthetic fabrics in washing machines and the effects that these have on aquatic and human life. Every time these types of fibres – particularly polyester – are washed they release millions of microfragments, which are not filtered out by purification systems, but are instead released into our seas, where they enter the food chain.
