Plastic is notorious for taking thousands of years to break down and deteriorate into smaller pieces (usually about five millimeters long in size) to eventually become microplastics. Microplastics are becoming more widespread as they are making their way into things we use on a daily basis: bottled water, honey, salt, toothpastes and hand sanitizers to name quite a few.
