THE DANGERS OF MICROBEADS

Slider_1_-_A_Farewell_To_Microbeads

Until recently, I did not know the effect of microbeads and what they were doing to our oceans. If you have used an exfoliant, or a certain toothpaste, you may have been mistakenly using a product which contains polluting plastic. The microbeads are tiny plastic beads which are so small they do not get filtered by our sewage systems meaning they get flushed into our oceans and in the stomachs of innocent marine life. The microbeads can even end up in the fish that we eat.

Thankfully, Obama has just banned them in the US and so has the Canadian government. It would be so amazing if the UK could follow in his footsteps. Please sign the petition to urge David Cameron to ban microbeads?
