Personal care products such as the shampoo, facial cleanser, and even toothpaste you use at home can contribute to a massive plastic pollution problem. We talk with Anna Cummins, Executive Director of The 5 Gyres Institute, who explains the dangers of plastic “microbeads” that enter the ocean and endanger aquatic life as well as humans. Find out how you can help end this unnecessary pollution problem.
Everyday Action: Check the labels of the personal care products you use in your home and stop using products containing polyethylene or polypropylene microbeads. Send any products with microbeads to 5 Gyres to help bring awareness to this important issue.
