Gulf coast researchers are fighting to keep plastic out of our oceans. They say comfortable clothing, like yoga pants could be harming our environment.

Experts are warning that shreds of small plastic are flowing down bathroom sinks and shower drains.

Researchers say the micro fibers can come from yoga pants, cozy jackets, athletic wear, and other garments made from synthetic materials.
