Many of us are worried about plastic pollution and its impact on the environment. But we still have a lot to learn. New research shows that microplastics are found in some of our favourites seafoods - sardines, prawns, oysters. Research author Francisca Ribeiro says the findings raise more questions than answers.
And Plastic Free July is the movement founded 10 years ago in Perth that asks people to give up plastic for a month. This year July was very different - thanks to the pandemic many of us can't use keep cups at cafes, and there's a lot more takeaway going on. Still, every little bit counts, says Rebecca Prince-Ruiz, founder of Plastic Free July. Rebecca has just co-authored a book on the movement with Joanna Atherfold Finn, Plastic Free.
