Governments and NGOs worldwide will gather in Ottawa to negotiate the UN Global Plastic Treaty this Earth Day, April 22, 2024.

Babies vs. Plastics, the first of five reports on the serious health risks of plastics, overviews recent research on the impacts of microplastics on the health of young babies and children.
