Soon to be no more!

Soon to be no more! “One tube of exfoliating facewash can contain more than 350,000 microbeads and it’s estimated that 2.9 trillion microbeads enter U.S. waterways annually.”
Yesterday the President signed the microbeads ban. Thank you Senator Kirsten Gillibrand​ and Rep. Elise Stefanik​ for sponsoring this important piece of legislation.
There is still more to do. Plastic pollution from a raft of other sources continues. “Microbeads are a small part of the much larger problem of marine debris. As more people consume more products that are made of substances that do not biodegrade easily, if at all, the volume of plastics that end up in our waterways continues to grow,” says Steve Cohen writing in the Huffington Post.
