Topic: Tracking microplastics in Pennsylvania's cleanest waterways

Guest: Dan Brown of PennEnvironment

How Topic Discussed: The PennEnvironment Research & Policy Center has released the results of microplastics testing in Pennsylvania’s streams that are categorized as the state’s cleanest and most ecologically important. What are microplastics and what health risks do they present? How were the tests made? Who coordinated the research? What does the study indicate about local streams such as Bear Run, Little Sandy Creek, and the Youghiogheny River? What are some policy recommendations that PennEnvironment is making to reduce microplastics in our food and water? How can residents get involved?
