VANCOUVER – Microplastic pollution is the largest contributor to litter on Canada’s shores, a new report has claimed. Over 330,000 pieces of plastic debris were collected by shoreline cleanup volunteers over the course of 1,849 sessions covering 2,800km of beach in 2017.

Planet Textiles is due to host several high profile discussions on microplastic pollution in Vancouver on 22nd May.
