In an Expert Focus article for Waterbriefing, Jo Bradley, Market Development Manager at SDS, draws attention to an overlooked source of microplastics pollution.

Jo: “We will look back on 2018 as the year the world faced up to the true extent of plastics pollution. With Sir David Attenborough’s heartrending narration of Blue Planet 2 still ringing in our ears, as the year went on we were confronted with remarkable and shocking footage of entangled turtles and birds with stomachs bulging with plastic fragments.

Thank goodness for Sir David, and all those colourful images illustrating how plastic is turning up in even the most remote and unpopulated places on earth. Who could fail to be astonished by its persistent and pervasive global penetration?”
