Directly contributing to SDGs 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 15 (life on land), this research identifies microplastic's multiple negative impacts on terrestrial ecosystem services.
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.
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.

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).
This book chapter addresses goals 12, 7, 11 and 15 by looking at the environmental and economic impact of the utilization of biomass resources.

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.

This research supports SDGs 2 (zero hunger), 15 (life on land) and 17 (partnerships for the goals). Ecological intensification aims to use ecosystem services (e.g. pollination and pest management) to sustain agricultural production while minimising environmental impact. Kleijn et al. discuss the benefits of ecological intensification and ways that scientists can better communicate these to farmers.
Contributing to SDGs 9.5 (enhance scientific research), 14 (life under water) and 15 (life on land), this article identifies research priorities for current and future studies on microplastics and their interaction with organisms.
