A Plastic Clothing Nightmare
We take from the earth and return poison. It turns out
laundry water contains microparticles of plastic, from
synthetic clothing, endangering life in the oceans.
From Al Jazeera:

But, these microplastics are thought to release chemicals and to join the food chain when it enters the bloodstream and then the body of marine life - which may then find its way into dinner plates.
