Welsh Sea Champions Sarah and Harriet have been helping us "Beat the Microbead"!
Our seas are becoming filled with microscopic plastic particles - they are now present in all the seas and oceans of the world, and we are contributing to this when we use certain bathroom products.
Every day, millions of people, without knowing, wash plastic beads down the drain, and into our seas. A whopping 3 out of 4 scrubs and peels contain micro plastics - but it's not just these products. Shampoos, soap, toothpaste, eyeliners, lip gloss, deodorant and sunblock sticks can also contain plastic particles.
We want Sea Champions to BOYCOTT products containing plastic ingredients. Starting NOW!
Download the “Beat the microbead” app so you can scan barcodes to see if a product contains microplastics.
We really need your help to get British products listed on the app. Please tell us which products do and don’t contain micro plastics!
Welsh Sea Champions Sarah and Harriet have been doing a fantastic job checking which products contain microplastics in shops in Swansea, so we can update the app.
