In 2015 I began researching the untold story of micro plastics. As part of this reporting I developed a social journalism program where citizens from around the world collected tap water to be tested by one of the leading US based researcher teams at the University of Minnesota and the State University of New York, Fredonia. That study revealed that micro plastics have contaminated the global drinking water supply. This led to more studies and has now led to a robust discussion on the global stage and to the WHO investigating human health impacts. The reporting was recognized internationally by the Association of British Science Writers.
