We’re pretty much destroying our oceans with plastic. In fact, we’re throwing over 2.6 TRILLION pounds of trash into the water yearly. One of the biggest aggressors in this plastic onslaught to our waterways are microbeads.
Microbeads were added to your soap and toiletries a while back for producers to cut their product with something cheaper than soap — and thereby maximize their profits by selling you less and telling you it’s more. They sold you on the fact that the microbeads magically killed more bacteria. This has been disproven. You’d think that wouldn’t be necessary. Have you ever killed bacteria by putting plastic on it? Of course not.
