Not everything is sebadal

The deficiencies in the water purification and regeneration systems mean that part of the waste that we dispose of through household drains ends up on our coasts, as we see in the Abades sebadal. Tampons and pads are, in part, made of synthetic fibers that degrade slowly, producing microplastics in the form of microfibers. This and other similar waste, such as ear buds (banned from marketing in 2021 if they contain plastic material) cannot be flushed down the toilet, and therefore can end up in the sea.
