Maia Mcguire, Sea Grant agent with the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences will present "Eight ways to save the ocean: How to reduce microplastic pollution.”
Most of us know not to throw trash, especially plastic, into the ocean. But some of our daily routines, such as putting on deodorant or doing laundry, do just that, though this plastic may be too small to see with the naked eye. Though they are small, these microplastics can have negative ecological impacts when eaten by marine life.
Each time you wash your face or brush your teeth, you just may be adding microscopic bits of plastic into the aquatic environment. These tiny particles never biodegrade and are accidentally eaten by marine life, threatening their health. Toxins in the environment are attracted to and can easily adhere to their surface.
We will discuss ways that each of us can reduce our contribution to the growing problem of plastic waste.
