Hi everybody we’re here travelling through the Northwest Passage with Canada’s One Ocean Expeditions and on board is a group of scientists from the Vancouver Aquarium and Ocean Wise that are doing really important research and testing. Twice a day they take a sample out of the ocean to see how many plastics might be up here in the arctic. We know that plastics are being found in oceans all over the world and all of us agree that plastics don’t belong in the ocean. But there’s something that you can do too at home right now. Think about the kinds of things you consume whether it’s your toothpaste or cleaning products or cosmetics a lot of them have something called microbeads in them and microbeads are actually tiny little pieces of plastic, those end up going down the sink and into our water system and into the ocean. So think about what you can do at home to make a difference to keep plastics out of the ocean and for more information please check out what the Vancouver Aquarium’s doing with Ocean Wise.
