Pre-production Plastic Pellets
Pre-production plastic pellets can vary in size from 1mm - 5mm. The pellets, made of raw resin, are melted down and used in the manufacturing of the plastic products that we use everyday. When these pellets enter the environment they are frequently found in areas of marine debris concentration.
