A microfiber is a tiny fragment of the type of plastic used to make synthetic fabrics. These fibers are shed from synthetic clothing during a washing machine cycle. These microplastic fibers are the largest contributor to watershed plastic pollution in some countries. These synthetic fibers are yet another microplastic that is reaching our oceans.
