Project video

This is how I came up with the idea for this project:

Once starting to investigate the microplastic pollution of aquatic ecosystems I realized that I'm personally and whole my family create microplastic pollution too. I began to sink into the problem and found more and more nagative effects of it. And it is arose a wish inside me to create something practical to prevent the pollution. I changed some my and my family's habits at the time too. For example we check the products we buy on the microplastic content.
