The tiny plastic beads that are most often found in facial cleansers as a scrub to exfoliate dead skin may be leaving a bigger environmental footprint than anticipated.
Scientists figure that there could be up to 1.7 million pieces of micro plastic in each square mile of the great lakes. WOW that's a lot. The consequences are still unknown but what's for sure is that this amount of any foreign substance can't be good- on the fish and other wildlife.
Need an exfoliater? Try River Soap's Vetiver Soap, with natural exfoliating oat and wheat bran and extra moisturizing avocado oil. And best of all, it smells great!
