Plastic bag charge leads to massive decline in their use.

Microbeads in Cosmetics -  These beads, generally designed to exfoliate skin or help in the cleaning process, are so small they wash down the drain and pass through sewage treatment plants. Because they are plastic, they never truly break down in the environment. The microbeads are about the size of a grain of sand. Scientists believe that fish and birds are seeing them as food, possibly mistaking them for fish eggs that are about the same size and shape. Scientists also worry that the beads may act as tiny sponges that soak up toxins and pass them on to whatever eats them, including fish that humans might eat.
* A new website www.beatthemicrobead.org tells us which products in the UK use microbeads.   (You’ll see there are many products sold in the UK which contain these plastic beads)
