For those interested: there is a Vrije Universiteit (online) event about single use plastics taking place on the 18th of September.
Microplastics are everywhere. Particles of plastic less than five millimeters in length (about the size of a sesame seed) find their way into the environment from many sources. These plastics are essentially indestructible; they do not biodegrade but break down into ever smaller pieces. At this interdisciplinary event, we explore microplastics from multiple angles.
