This project presents an assessment of the composition and severity of microplastic pollution on the beaches surrounding Hong Kong. Through comparison with similar data collected in summer months, and by surveying members of the HKIEd community, we identified the abundance, types and locations of microplastics and gauged the public’s awareness of the problem. These data sets allowed us to draw conclusions and make recommendations for the public of Hong Kong on how to better manage microplastic pollution.
