Plastic nibbles?!

Not so long ago we posted about the negative impact using microplastics in the personal care industry has on us and the environment, but particularly on the planet’s oceans. Whilst microbeads in toothpaste and scrubs is largely to blame for microplastics presence in the habitats of fish, that presence can also be attributed to the way bottles and other plastic break down in the conditions of sun and sea. This short 2 minute video by MinuteEarth explains it all very nicely so take a look! Back to beauty – the Cosmetics Compliance Summit in October is the perfect opportunity to raise the issues surrounding microbeads and plastic in Cosmetics, so don’t forget to send a letter to your MP asking for their use to banned like many states in the U.S. have done!
