plastic rocks

kamilo

First we had the plastisphere, a new ecosystem of tiny plastic particles in the ocean colonized by bacteria.

Now we have, plastiglomerates, Frankenstein rocks incorporating plastic, found at Kamilo, the beach I wrote about here. (And photo by Jen Coleman above.)

I love the poetic comment at the end of this piece that future beings might find etched impressions of water bottles in fossils. Welcome to the Anthropocene, life.

Thanks Susan Schultz for the tip.
