Life in plastic, not so fantastic

Run time: 10:30 – 17:00
Stories of plastic pollution in water often conjure images of straws being removed from sea turtles, or bags looking like jellyfish in tropical waters. Below the surface however, there are more issues much closer to home. 
Ria Devereux and colleagues from the University of East London have been spending time understanding the large variety of plastic pollutants found in surface waters of the River Thames. 
Join them as they reveal the abundance of plastic hidden in our waters. Discover the complex journey that unexpected items like fireworks, car tyres and much more take through our capital, to the sea.
