The ever-growing problem of plastic waste is increasing in the last expected place on Earth: the Arctic. Single-use plastics have infiltrated this fragile ecosystem, which was once a pristine wilderness. Around the Arctic Ocean, scientists continue to find plastic pollution. In this video, the BBC traveled to the northern fjords of Norway to speak with Bo Eide, a man that has made it his mission to remove as much plastic from the environment as possible.

Last year Eide collected nearly 30 tonnes of pollution from Norway’s coastlines. The pollution he finds travels from all over Europe and North America. “I think you can characterize it as a microplastic factory,” he says. “It’s so obvious that what we are doing here is the tip of the iceberg.” Eide has found that the biggest impact to pollution tends to come from equipment used by the fishing industry.
