1.3 Microplastics are all around us

Microplastics are everywhere, from the water we drink to the air that we breathe. But can they hurt us? And what are scientists doing to find out?

Our guests for this episode, Professor Paul Anastas, Dr Winnie Courtene-Jones and Professor Claire Gwinnett join us to share their vast experience on this topic, looking at everything from the marine environment to the clothing industry, and from the science laboratory to the corridors of power.
