EP9 Alice Forrest - The Invisible Threat of Microplastics, Experiencing Antarctica & Her Self Built Tiny Hom‪e‬ The Nature Between Us

    • Natural Sciences

Plastic pollution in our oceans is a well known and widespread problem, but because plastic never actually goes away, it just gets smaller and smaller, we are now fighting a new dilemma - micro/nano plastics.... and with recent studies suggesting seafood eaters consume around a credit card's worth of plastic each year, it's cause for concern.

In this episode Tessa speaks with conservationist and marine biologist Alice Forrest, who has spent the past decade traveling the world, researching plastic pollution and marine conservation, freediving with whales and teaching people about the importance of treading lightly. We discuss everything you need to know about microplastics, helpful habits you can adopt to avoid em/stop em, her experiences teaching in Antarctica, her self built tiny home, and lots of other interesting enviro saving stuff - like virtual reality !

Oh, and if you haven't already, you can download Al's recent e-book 'Micro Plastics / Massive Problem' here...
