Imogen was at the helm of a research project that influenced government legislation banning microbeads (tiny pieces of plastic) from various hygiene products, including facial scrubs and toothpaste, so they can no longer pollute the world’s oceans and be swallowed by wildlife.

Currently working towards her PhD on ‘the sources and fate of plastic pollution in the marine environment' at the University of Plymouth, Imogen was the first person to identify how much we could be polluting the environment from washing our clothes.

Imogen will give an enlightening and topical talk focusing on her research into the common ways we are unwittingly contaminating our environment with plastic. 

There is a limited number of Tickets and booking is required. A sum from ticket sales will be donated to Devon Community Foundation at the end of the autumn/winter term.
