Microplastics is another word for small plastics, larger plastic items often break down into tiny pieces called microplastics. Microplastics are often the most harmful kind of plastic as sea life think these little colorful pieces of plastic look like food, so animals eat the plastic. When their bellies are full of plastic, they stop eating (thinking they are full) which eventually leads to their death.
