Plastic Diet is currently calling for a total legislative ban on the manufacture and sale of plastic microbeads in New Zealand. Plastic microbeads are a completely unnecessary additive to a huge range of products — from cosmetics to laundry detergent! — which can have major impacts on our marine systems and even on human health.
Make sure you head over and sign the petition to join your voice with the thousands already making this call to the New Zealand government!
