THE GOOD FIGHT: In an ongoing bid to clean up the environment, a U.K.-wide ban on the sale of products containing microbeads comes into full force on Tuesday. In January, the ban was slowly phased in which barred the manufacturing of plastic microbeads in the U.K.
Microbeads, which are tiny pieces of plastic, are used in skin care and toiletry products such as toothpaste, exfoliators and face wash and because of their size, they are able to easily pass through filtration systems. According to the U.K. Parliament’s environmental audit committee, a single wash using microbead products can contain 100,000 plastic particles that will end up in the ocean, threatening marine biology.
