This article explores a previously overlooked form of microplastic pollution. Directly relevant to SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production), SDG 15 (life on land) and SDG 14 (life below water), this research investigates the interactions between tire derived microplastics and organic matter within the environment.

This review discusses the need for standardized research methodologies within freshwater microplastic research. Standardized techniques will improve the accuracy of microplastic abundance records within freshwater environments, supporting progress towards SDG 14 (life below water) and 12 (responsible consumption and production).
Supporting progress towards SDG's 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water), this review discusses microplastic and nanoplastic occurrence in freshwater ecosystems and explores current analytical methods used to characterise them.

Directly contributing to SDG's 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water), this review explores current methods to identify sources of freshwater microplastic pollution. Effective identification of these sources will help shape and develop future best management practices.

Directly supporting SDGs 3 (good health and wellbeing), 12 (responsible consumption and production), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land), this piece outlines current research on the accumulation of microplastics and their associated contaminants in a variety of organisms including humans.
This critical review explores current knowledge surrounding interactions between microplastics and persistent organic pollutants present within the marine environment. Enhanced understanding of microplastic's environmental impact supports SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water).
