Researchers Combined Two Enzymes, MHETase and PETase, To Create A Super Enzyme, Which Degrades Plastic 6X Faster Than The Previous Engineered Enzyme, PETase. This Innovation Has Implications In Quickly Degrading The Most Commonly Used Thermoplastics, Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), Which Takes 100s Of Years To Degrade In The Environment.

A Recent Study Shows That Plants Can Absorb Nanoplastics Via Their Roots. And The Plastics Could Block The Roots From Properly Absorbing Water; Prevent Plants From Growing Properly And Harming Seedling Development; Alter The Genetic Makeup Of Plants, Making It Impossible To Resist Disease. It’s Also Concerning Because We Eat Plants.

Plastic Pollution May Seem To Be Spreading From Marine Life To Land Animals. A Recent Study Has Indicated That Certain Flying Insects, Like Mosquitoes, From The Larvae Stage, Are Able To Ingest Microplastics. These Insects May Then Transmit The Plastic Up The Food Chain As They Are Being Fed Upon. More Scary Stuff!
