Next time you are using an exfoliating facial or body scrub with microbeads check to make sure that is does not contain plastic. Unfortunately, these plastic microbeads are too small to be filtered out of water treatment plants and are being increasingly found as pollutants in areas like the Great Lakes.

If your favorite product does contain plastic microbeads consider switching to one that uses natural exfoliating materials, such as pumice, oatmeal, apricot or walnut husks, which is found in Burt’s Bees or St. Ives products.
