Scientists Alarmed by Discovery of Plastic Trash Rocks on Remote Island
Scientists are in shock after discovering a new type of rock made entirely from plastic trash on an isolated Brazilian island. The discovery was made during a recent expedition to the remote volcanic island off the coast of Brazil, and researchers were alarmed by what they found.
The rocks, which are composed entirely of discarded plastic waste, such as bottles and bags, have been dubbed “plastic rocks” due to their unique composition. Scientists believe that these rocks may be forming naturally over time as waves crash against the shoreline and break down larger pieces of debris into smaller particles that eventually become embedded in sand or sediment.
This is an alarming finding for scientists who worry about how much damage our reliance on single-use plastics has done to our environment already – not only do we have landfills full of this material but now it appears that it is even becoming part of geological formations! It also serves as yet another reminder for us all to reduce our consumption levels when it comes to disposable plastics so we can help preserve natural ecosystems around the world before any more damage is done.Read more at Futurism
