99.9% of Britain’s treated water is completely free of micro plastics, says a study by UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology

99.9% of the United Kingdom’s treated water is completely free of micro plastics, revealed a groundbreaking study by the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology.

The study has revealed that untreated water on an average, contains 4.9 micro plastics per litre while treated water in the UK holds only 0.00011 micro plastics per litre.

The report’s co-author Andrew C. Johnson said, ‘Let’s say you’re drinking two, three, four litres a day, you’d still be somewhat unlucky to drink a micro plastic in your water.”

He has even further suggested that if people drink from the tap than from a plastic bottle, they will be less exposed to the risk of micro plastics.
