Regarding plastic pollution, I envision a world where we are more conscious of the things we buy and dispose. As plastic pollution was my topic for my hard conversation, as well as will be the topic of my final project, I had been researching a bit about this topic and was shocked to find what types of plastic pollutants were in the water. One of these microplastic pollutants that shocked me was microbeads. Microbeads are often found in cosmetics and, most notably for me, was found in cleansers and hand sanitizers. As a child, I used to use anything with microbeads in it... because of this, it was eye-opening when I realized what a negative effect it had on our oceans as it was not easily filtered and was non-biodegradable. I value bringing awareness towards topics as a good start towards change, as well as making small differences in our daily lives whenever we can. From this, I want to promote more education towards the public regarding plastic pollution and other environmentally friendly alternatives as consumers can have a big impact on companies. Additionally, being more strict against companies that continually use plastics such as microbeads
