This course was really interesting and a lot of information to digest. Bioaccumulation was a very interesting component, seeing how microplastics are working their way up the food chain was happening much more frequently and quickly than I had imagined. A great emphasis is getting involved in policy changes. Providing contact information for policy makers, contacting those at the industrial level, etc. Without using our voices, it will not be heard.

This course gave a great in-depth view to what is considered to be a microplastic, and the properties and problems associated with them today. The surprising areas we’ve found micro plastics really makes you think about your own environmental impact and how basic some of the solutions we can incorporate are.
