From the Blog
Rotary’s involvement in COP28 goes beyond environmental concerns as it emphasizes the importance of empowering local communities to take action and play their part in building a greener, more resilient future.
We are sometimes consoled by learning that some microorganisms eat plastics and could contribute to eliminating them.
It is not the case of this Plankton that actually worsens the situation: it eats microplastics and expels the much smaller and therefore more dangerous nanoplastics!
