Not just a filthy beach: What plastic pollution means for you
One thing I found particularly interesting was the changes that people who have studied plastics in the marine environment in a professional capacity have made to their lifestyle – for me this is important: BBC Science editor David Shukman questioned Professor Tamara Galloway of Exeter University, who studies the effects of microplastics on the marine environment, on her own plastic use. Her response? Yes, she and her team are cutting down on seafood and "we don't buy plastic bottles of water and try to avoid plastic wrapping on food".
