Going Green: Microbeads

Description

Microbeads have been used for years by the makers of body washes, exfoliators, toothpastes and other cleansing products to give them scrubbing power. The problem is microbeads don't biodegrade, so they're ending up in area waterways and the ocean. A ban against microbeads takes effect in 2017.
