What is it all about?

This video gives you an idea of how big the microplastic problem is in some places.

Taking Samples

We have made the process of taking samples as easy as possible.  Most of the equipment you need can be found around the house.  The important thing to remember is that one ‘survey sample’ is actually 25 small samples taken from 5 larger sample areas.

Analysing Samples

Once you have collected your samples you need to analyse them.  The first process is to dry them and then remove any organic material.  Then you can compare what you have got against our ‘microplastics guide’
