Micro Plastic Workshop

Day 1

CEPI Youth of Eskasoni first nation started taking samples today. Youth were introduced this morning to what micro plastics are, where they are found, and where they come from. Did you know that micro plastics are found world wide even in places humans have never stepped foot at? During sampling, the youth did a quick shoreline clean up – finding trash smaller than a cigarette butt, and as large as a whole BBQ. Tomorrow youth will take a couple more samples and observe the samples under the microscope. Stay tuned!
