Fed-up of seeing stories about the plastic pollution in our oceans? Want to do “your bit” to help? Yeah, us too.
A ban on microbeads has finally come into force in the UK. These small circular beads, designed to help with exfoliation and then be washed down the drain, often slip through waste-water treatment plants and end up in the sea.
They don’t degrade over time and pose a threat to marine wildlife.
These tiny (and unnecessary) pieces of plastic are added to face scrubs, soap, toothpastes and shower gels and, in the course of a single shower, around 100,000 plastic particles can enter the sewage system.
We all sat in awe watching Blue Planet II last winter. Narrated by the lovely David Attenborough, we saw the ocean in a more detailed way than ever before – its vastness and the sheer quantity and variety of marine wildlife. We were introduced to aquatic wildlife that we didn’t know existed (did you see the Bobbit worm?!) and, whilst gripping our hot chocolate for warmth and comfort, watched their day-to-day survival.
So, wouldn’t it be careless to endanger these fascinating creatures?
