Toxic chemicals, produced and released into the Great Lakes, have been a source of concern for many decades. Health warnings are still being issued because of PCBs, DDT, and mercury in fish. Now new toxics are being found in the Great Lakes, stemming from consumer products that we use every day, such as shampoos, sunscreens, plastics, pesticides, and pharmaceuticals. Two emerging pollutants, microbead plastics and PAHs, are plaguing our Great Lakes. Join the us to learn the latest research about these two emerging issues and how your actions can help protect our waterways from this new pollution.
