Our Lake Association (Mississippi Lake) did a microplastic survey last year. 15 samples all in different locations around the lake and every location had microplastics. The concentrations were not severe, but considered moderate. The conclusion was that most of the microplastics came from clothing. Microplastics are simply everywhere now.

Can water treatment plants be upgraded to take more microfibres out of the system?
Vanessa Bernicky
01:17:08
wow.. what an initiative to undertake. How can we take micro fibres from water
Heather Mitchell-Adams
01:21:20
there would also be the issue of replacement, as Merino wool would be a much longer lasting cloth than cotton or poly
Jenny Davis
01:23:24
Great tips! Next Q&A coming up soon... let us know!

Living in a rural area, there are not that many clothing shops that feature alternative clothing made with the aforementioned alternatives … women’s clothing is difficult to purchase clothes that have appeal for our figures.

I wonder if microplastics get through a septic system and then into waterways. I live on a lake.

There is a concept gaining some ground now - EPR - Extended Producer Responsibility. This approach is all about having the manufacturer take the product back or help end user municipalities manage it. However, the best approach, in my opinion is REDUCE and REUSE - Not focus so much on recycling.

Concerning septic systems - some of the microplastics
Doreen Donald
01:34:14
Jake - are you aware of Watersheds Canada and their Natural Edge program?
Bill MacLean
01:34:28
some of the microplastics are small enough to get into the groundwater, in some soil types microfibres have been found.
