Plastic microbeads are found in personal and cosmetic products, such as your toothpaste, facial scrubs and washes. They wash into the ocean every day and harm marine life and your food chain. We know there is approximately 150 million tons of plastic lurking in our oceans. We are so pleased the UK has taken this step to ban the plastic, and hope Australia is next!
