Great Lakes Regional Pollution Prevention Roundtable
Promoting Pollution Prevention Through Information Exchange
GLRPPR Sector Resource: Sustainable Seminar Series: Plastic Pollution: What We Know and Where are We Going?
Although plastic as a mass produced material hit the stage post-world war two and plastic pollution in the world's oceans is documented dating back to the early 1970's, as an area of active, on-going scientific research it is really a topic of this century. The Great Lakes represent the largest freshwater ecosystem in the world, and thus it is fitting that most of the freshwater research on plastic pollution is focused right here. This webinar intends to present an overview of the research work that has been done to-date (both by the speaker and others), as well as discussing future work that is either already in the works or in need of being conducted.
