Scientist find airborne plastic in various environments

Although research into the prevalence of airborne plastics is relatively recent compared to research in plastics in landfills and oceans,

scientists are discovering airborne plastics are reaching vast areas of the environment. Dr Stephanie Wright recently noted in a New York Times article the need to have a better understanding of our exposure to airborne plastic particulates as until we do, it is difficult to infer any heath effects; more research is needed in this area.
