At the Tennessee Aquarium here in Chattanooga, you can learn how microplastics can impact not only our rivers, streams and lakes - but also our oceans.

What is on display is funded by a grant from the Tennessee Department of Transportation’s “Nobody Trashes Tennessee” campaign to reduce litter across the state.

Dr. Anna George is the Aquarium’s vice president of conservation science and education - and Mike McClanahan is the transportation manager for TDOT’s highway beautification office.
