Share shares The top 10 rivers – eight of which are in Asia – accounted for so much plastic because of the mismanagement of waste His team analysed data on debris from 79 sampling sites along 57 rivers – both microplastic particles measuring less than 5 mm and macroplastic above this size. They said microplastics in particular can damage the health of marine life but cleaning it all up would be impossible. However stemming the tide could help reduce the potential harm.
