We are always looking for ways to reduce our plastic waste in our classroom. We have just discovered another area where we can help to reduce microplastics in our oceans. It's our very own clothes! We watched a video about how tiny fibres from clothing get washed away in our washing machines, and end up travelling up the foodchain from tiny sea-creatures to our own tables (fish fingers for tea, anyone?!)
After the video, we checked our own clothing and discovered that we are wearing a variety of natural and man-made fibres. Have a look at these three arms. One is mostly acrylic, one is mostly polyester, and one is 100% cotton. Can you guess which is which?
