Following on from plastics, we have the beauty industry and the ever changing ways of promoting things that are meant to be better for you. A lot of companies like to have exfoliates in their products, and this can be done naturally, however it’s also done by using microbeads. Microbeads are tiny bits of plastic which will go down your drain and into the water system, becoming swallowed by fish and other sealife. This can cause damage to the animals even killing them, it also becomes part of the human food chain, meaning we are eating plastic!
We need to be proactive on this, boycotting the products that have this in them. If there’s no demand for it, hopefully they will stop making it. Make sure to read labels of things that you buy, or look for all natural products.
There’s a good YouTube video explaining microbeads
