GMA 400L - Senior Seminar Research Lab

Plastics and microplastics pollution has become a significant issue to the planet. The increased demand for single-use plastic products have negatively impacted our environment. Single-use bags in our oceans are affecting marine life. Many marine organisms are consuming plastics or getting stuck in plastic products. This poisons the base that forms the marine food chain, ultimately poisons humans that eat the affected fish. This poster explores the different policy actions taken by California, Delaware and Hawaii in search to reduce/eliminate plastic products.
