Brazilian researchers find 'terrifying' plastic rocks on remote island Melted plastic has become intertwined with rocks on the island, located 1,140 km (708 miles) from the southeastern state of Espirito Santo, which researchers say is evidence of humans' growing influence over the earth's geological cycles. https://www.reuters.com/lifestyle/science/brazilian-researchers-find-terrifying-plastic-rocks-remote-island-2023-03-15/

It's not great but it almost seems better for plastic to tie themselves up into a harder structure than just remaining as microplastics in the environment.
