Currently household, commericial and many artists paints contain plastic. Every time brushes, pots and roller trays are washed these microplastics enter our waste water and are not currently taken out before entering the environment.

The best way to avoid this would be for the Government to legislate for water companies to remove these microplastics prior to waste water returning to the environment.

I am an artist and supporter of environmental issues. Current awareness is being raised about plastics but the plastics in paints is a largely invisible pollutant and needs to be addressed urgently.
