Plastic taints most bottled water, study finds

研究發現,大部分瓶裝水遭塑膠污染

 

【摘要2022.10.2..自由】林雨萱

Microplastics in water can come from larger pieces of plastic that break down in landfills and oceans.

水裡的塑膠微粒來自垃圾掩埋場和海洋的大片塑膠分解。

Fabrics such as fleece and nylon are made from plastic. When washed, they shed bits of plastic lint.

抓毛絨和尼龍等衣料是由塑膠製成的。當沖洗的時候,他們會脫落少許塑膠片。

It travels from the wash water down household drains and eventually into rivers, lakes and oceans.

塑膠片會伴隨洗滌水流進家庭下水道,最後流入河流、湖泊和海洋。

Other microplastic beads go in some toothpastes and skin-care products.

其他塑膠微粒來自一些牙膏和護膚品。

Once plastic bits go down the drain, it will wash into — and then out of — water treatment plants.

一旦塑膠碎片流進下水道,它會先被沖進汙水處理廠,然後再從汙水處理廠流出來。

These facilities release their water into rivers and the ocean which is the source of tap water. Some of that water may move into groundwater, which some companies use for bottled water.

從汙水處理廠釋放的水會流進河流和海洋等自來水源頭。部分的水會流進地下水,一些公司會用來製作瓶裝水。
