Abstract

According to all studies, there is a contamination of the environment on this earth with plastic and its degradation products. Especially nanoplastics are highly dangerous. This trend has long since affected animals and humans. Diseases and deaths are the result. And this, although there are natural alternatives. Clear decisions and new ways are needed if humanity is not to remain exposed to this unnecessary risk. Possible solutions are the production of flax and hemp.
