Plastic poses a massive contamination problem for the environment, especially in the aquatic system where it is difficult to monitor.This study is hoped to be a first step towards better understanding and addressing mainly the micro-plastic pollution problem in different aquatic systems. By integrating the literature study with the laboratory experiments of the plastic pollutants, I expect this work will provide valuable insight into determining the influence of the plastic to the environment, and that it will also offer a starting point for stakeholders, and society more broadly, to develop community-centered initiatives to reduce or even eliminate plastic pollution in our environment.
