We have a new blog out looking into what is known about the impacts of micro- and nano-plastics on human health. With increasing evidence that micro- and nano- plastics are turning up worldwide in food, water, air and people's bodies, urgent questions are being asked around what, if any, the impacts on human health might be.

women in minagris


International Women's Day (08/03) provides a great opportunity for us to celebrate the many women involved in MINAGRIS, each of whom are contributing to investigating the impacts of micro- and nano-plastics on agricultural soil health. Above are just a few of the women involved in the project! 

Hello and season's greetings from all of us in the MINAGRIS team!

It's been a busy year, and the latest edition of the our newsletter looking back on what we've been up to is out now. To sign up for future editions next year, complete the newsletter sign-up on our homepage.

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the festivities, and wish you all a new year of happiness, peace and opportunity.

Available on IoSAndroid, and in your desktop browser, the recently launched SoilPlastic App allows you to record your sightings of plastic in soils. With these records, you will help scientists to gain a better understanding of the impacts of plastic residues on soil health. This is a key area of research because we rely on our soils for producing 95% of our food. Access our quick-start guide here
