Dear Brian Bauer, Thank you for the comments on my project. Yes, you are right that water is one of the most neglected and over exploited resources while it is essential for our survival. I have been working in this area since 2011. I am also aware of Plastic Pollution that is impacting the aquatic environment. I am a supporter of "Beat Plastic" raised by the UN Environment. I would like to invite you in my team. Your opinion and suggestions would be helpful to complete this project and continue more projects on water. Best regards. Shahida
