Description

One of the biggest threats we face today is smaller than a pencil eraser. Microplastics are toxin absorbing pieces of plastic less than 5 millimeters long. Learn more about the research being conducted, in the Charleston Harbor, and what businesses and communities are doing to address this issue. The South Carolina Aquarium is honored to welcome Dr. John Weinstein, Chair of Biology at The Citadel and Lia Colabello, Principal of Plastic Pollution Solutions.
