Are there Microplastics in drinking water?
In 2018, a research conducted by the State University of New York - Fredonia ("SUNY-Fredonia") titled
"Synthetic Polymer Contamination in Bottled Water" revealing that many international brands of bottled water were contaminated with microplastics,
which, according to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the European Chemicals Agency,
are very small fragments of plastic originating from various industrial and manufacturing processes and products that can contaminate natural ecosystems.
The tests done by SUNY-Fredonia covered 259 individual bottles from 27 different lots across 11 brands, purchased from 19 locations in nine countries
around the world. The SUNY-Fredonia report noted that there was an average of 325 particles per litre, with concentration ranging from zero to more
than 10,000 particles in a single bottle. From the samples, the report found that 93% were found to contain microplastics.
NO Microplastics in Spritzer Natural Mineral Water.
