Asda Car Park Resurfacing

'Environmentally friendly', really?...

A quote form this article: "MacRebur grinds the plastic bottles into tiny pieces..."

So essentially MacRebur/Asda are turning waste bottles in microplastics and then using them to surface a car park. Granted bitumen is a tough material when formulated properly but nonetheless it is inevitably eroded with use. This will surely release the microplastic into the environment where it stands a strong chance of being washed into the drains and potentially out to sea or even scattered into the general environment by the wind and risk becoming a part of the food chain.

Has this idea been properly thought through?
