This is concerning. Will Brita water filters take this out?
Stay in hiding like you are. Reading all your posts the last few months, you might as well just stay inside all the time and live in a bubble, because you will find everything wrong out there that can kill you one way or the other

Well, microplastics are a pretty big problem, worldwide.

I’ve thought about adding a filter my washing machine hose to catch microplastics in the waste water. Has nothing to do with being scared or living in a bubble.

Everythings a problem worldwide. You take care of this, and something else random will kill you anyway

You mean water out of the bottles that are causing the issue of micro plastic in the first place?

Of course we will all die one day. Not sure what that has to do with caring about water quality.

Can you post some reputable info about that?

I had to haul my own water for 11 years for my own house, I probably forgot more about water quality then you will ever know
