There is national legislation in United States to try and put a stop to plastic microbeads! Contact your Senator today to voice your support for the Microbead Free Waters Act to solve the problem of these polluting plastics.
Plastic microbeads are in face soaps, body washes, and even toothpastes. Microbeads are really tiny plastic particles usually smaller than two millimeters.
Most wastewater treatment doesn’t filter out microbeads, and they get discharged into waterways. As a result, micro-plastic particles are found in bays, gulfs and seas worldwide, as well as inland waterways.
It doesn't have to be this way. Send a letter to your State Senator today to voice your support for products free of these polluting plastics.
