Plastic debris from tyres and synthetic fabrics are a major source of ocean pollution

2017 BBC News article by Helen Briggs.

"Microplastics from tyres and textiles are a bigger source of marine pollution than the breakdown of larger plastic waste in some areas, says the IUCN - International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Our daily activities, such as washing clothes and driving, significantly contribute to the pollution choking our oceans, with potentially disastrous effects on the rich diversity of life within them, and on human health."
