Lawmakers Considering Ban of Non-biodegradable Micro-beads


Illinois lawmakers are considering a ban on products containing microbeads.

 

Many skin-care products contain the beads, which are supposed to gently scrub and exfoliate the skin.

 

But the tiny beads are made of non-biodegradable plastic and are starting to collect by the millions in Illinois waterways.

 

A pending bill would prohibit the manufacture of such products in the state by the end of 2017, and would ban their sale here a year later.
