“Scientists working at Bath University have now come up with a method to make microbeads out of cellulose, a starch found in wood and plants.
Tests have been carried which show the beads can be processed to be soft or hard but can also biodegrade into sugar in a short period of time.” http://uk.whales.org/news/2017/06/new-solution-to-plastic-pollution
Has anyone tried using sand? It may be less of a problem for marine life.
Time to try some plastic microbead-free products?
