Welcome to the Plastiverse
a new repository for plastic pollution tools and information

There are so many incredible tools that have been created to facilitate plastic research. Sometimes, there are so many, and they are developed so quickly that it can be difficult to keep up with them all! A small group of scientists (and friends!) created a website called the Plastiverse to catalog and organize all of these tools into one place so all researchers can find, access, and use them.
The Plastiverse was created by Cleo Stratmann, Scott Coffin, Leah Thornton-Hampton, Win Cowger, Orestis Herodotou, and Kara Wiggin. We are a group working in different sectors (e.g., government, academia, non-profit) and areas of plastics research (e.g., toxicity, occurrence, policy), but all aiming to understand the impacts of plastic on our environment and develop solutions.
New content and features will be continually added so stick around!
