Trash Trawl in the Chesapeake Bay

Julie Lawson, Director of Trash Free Maryland, and Stiv Wilson, Campaign Director of The Story of Stuff Project, lead a research effort to collect microplastic samples from the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland on Sept. 4, 2015. The team used a manta trawl for the study, which sought to find out how much plastic waste is in the Chesapeake Bay, what kinds of plastic it is, and where it is coming from.
