Pollution

A community-focussed project aimed at encouraging parents and children to walk to school in Nottinghamshire has seen a commercial company of air quality experts join forces with a not-for-profit organisation.

Each time an item of clothing is washed up to 700,000 microscopic fibres make their way into our oceans, where they are swallowed by sea life and become incorporated into the food chain, potentially ending up on our plates, according to a new report by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

The average fine per prosecution brought by the Environment Agency against companies has increased six-fold in the last five years, according to research from global law firm Clyde & Co, but the amount of prosecutions has decreased in the same period.

Microplastics were present in all of 188 mussel samples in the River Ouse, a new study by a University of Brighton student has found.

Over two fifths, 43%, of children living in urban areas are concerned about the levels of air pollution near their school, new figures reveal. A YouGov poll, carried out for Sustrans, the walking and cycling charity, surveyed over 1,000 children aged six to 15 years old about their attitudes towards air pollution and the actions they think should be taken to help clean up the air.

Media giant Sky has placed £25 million into Sky Ocean Ventures, an investment vehicle that will fund new ideas and businesses who can help solve the oceans plastic crisis with solutions to everyday plastic problems, and it has also simultaneously launched an incubator project for businesses to test their ideas at Sky's west London campus.

Pioneering pollution-busting "moss trees" have been installed in Newcastle and London where they will purify the city centre air and create opportunities for research into the benefits of the plants' natural filtering abilities.

Residents affected by issues such as high levels of air pollution or noise nuisance often feel helpless and ignored, but now, using mobile phone apps and low cost open-source sensors, they are able to gather the facts they need to kick-start change.

Resident groups, television producers and TV personality Dr Xand van Tulleken have collaborated with EarthSense Systems and demonstrated the effectiveness of community action to tackle localised air quality issues, the programme airs tonight, the day after BBC News revealed pollution scores for UK postcode areas.

The 'lost' 99%' of potentially harmful ocean microplastics could be identified cheaply with a fluorescent dye, its University of Warwick developers claim.
