Thank Aneesh for your research! Really interesting public opinion question following up on your work: Would the conversation be different if microplastics wasn't a concern for human consumption? If we know that marine animals and organisms are impacted by microplastics, is that enough information to encourage plastic reduction campaigns and policies? Or is that human impact and human consumption of microplsatics a necessary driver.

Diana, I wonder if SUNY Buffalo has any research related to answering this question through their behavioral research

What percent of marine debris is coming through our storm water system? Garbage from our streets washing into the water.

I’ve heard that string trimmers are a huge source of microplastics. They spew tiny bits of plastic that get into the soil and end up in the waterways. Do you have info on that?
Jenna Schwerzmann
01:04:38
Not just from littering on the beach, which happens. Also washed down through the storm drains, as Tracy says. Overflowing trash bins and dumpsters, spilling from garbage trucks, etc. Plastic reduction needs to happen everywhere.

The Northport High School has a program called the E Team. The other schools are Brentwood HS, Smithtown West and Rocky Point HS. I really have to say they were terrific. We are hoping to expand the program next year to include Nassau County

I;m sorry Judith, I am not familiar with string trimmers, but I will look into it!
