Mondays with Martha #153 - Microplastics in Aquatic Habitats

This week I feature Carolyn Foley, an enthusiastic researcher with Purdue University and Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant. She explains what microplastics are, where they come from, what we currently understand about their ecological and toxicological impacts in aquatic habitats, and what we can do to help prevent and reduce their presence in the environment. Thank you, Carolyn, for your clear explanation of a very complicated topic and for giving us some actions to take in our daily lives to make a difference!

For a deeper dive on this topic, Carolyn offers these resources: www.greatlakesplasticcleanup.org/cleanup-technology
