Microplastic Contamination in Tap Water

Microplastics and Nanoplastics are microscopic plastic particles that are ending up in the environment across the planet, in particular sea water and fresh, drinking water.

Plastic contamination of marine life is well documented, however studies are now just revealing the extent of microplastic and nanoplastic contamination of our fresh drinking water.

Of particular concern are nanoplastics, so small that they have the ability to cross the cell wall. In fact, they are up to 1,000 times smaller than a single algal cell.

‘According to a study conducted by Orb Media on plastics and tap water, 83% of tested water samples from major metropolitan areas around the world were contaminated with plastic fibers.’

Reverse Osmosis effectively removes Microplastics and Nanplastics from your drinking water. It does this by filtering down to a molecular level, effectively excluding them. Reverse Osmosis is a long term, safe way to purify your water.
