High concentration of microplastics found near Mount Everest

Nov 21, 2020 13:57 IST

High concentration of microplastics have been discovered in snow close to the Mount Everest, showing how plastic pollution has found its way to every part of the globe. Researchers from the University of Plymouth led the research and found microplastics in all the snow samples collected from 11 locations near the Everest. The Everest Base Camp, where trekkers spend the most time, had the highest concentrations of microplastics.
