Trash Talk is a 7-part miniseries where we explore the science behind sustainability.
So what are microplastics even? And how do they get into animals and humans? Explore the lives of microplastics with Leisha.
Join Brett as he explores one way recycling plants can sort out glass, plastics, and metals.
Showing how you can explore the world of science by up-cycling trash. Join Lawrence in making a vortex cannon from trash found around his house.
