Title: Microbeads
Published: San Fernando Valley Business Journal
Date: March 10, 2014
About this cartoon: A somewhat obscure environmental threat comes from the cosmetics industry: the addition of thousands of tiny plastic beads in lotions, facial scrubs and other household or personal-care products, added as texture for exfoliation or cleaning purposes. The tiny beads wash down the drain and eventually into the ocean, where they accumulate by the millions and do not break down, adding to the plastic garbage that threatens wildlife.
