Microscopic plastics commonly known as microbeads are one of those unknown dangers society are unaware about.

So far there has been a ban in our supermarkets of cosmetic products that use microbeads in there products, across the globe. to prevent micro plastics entering our sea. However there are billions still in our oceans.

Micro plastic are cause by more human activities. Disposable plastic and broken down synthetic fibres made from our clothing entering our water system. Although it is little it is still a threat as it affects aquatic life and humans.
