Booklet “What is microplastic pollution and how to reduce it?”

In the framework of project Lakes connect we have made a booklet about types of microplastic pollution and advice on how to reduce it in lakes. Last year we visited lakes in Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, where we collected samples in the water surface and sediments to assess the presence of microplastics. We compared pollution in lakes with a large pressure from tourism and in lakes that are not visited as much.

Soon there will also be an educational poster near one of the lakes considered in the project in Gulbene – lake Stāmerienas – which is being created in cooperation with our project partner Gulbene municipality.

Booklet in Latvian: Kas ir mikroplastmasas piesārņojums un kā to mazināt?
