BEAT THE MICROBEAD WITH ALL-NATURAL SCRUBS
On the 3rd of September this year, the government ruled that microbeads would be banned in the UK market, starting mid-2017 and we couldn’t be happier. These tiny plastic particles are used in beauty products, like toothpaste and face scrub to banish unwanted cells, whether that be on the skin, in your mouth, or in the home. However, it’s recently become apparent that these nasty little fellas don’t biodegrade, meaning nearly 100,000 per shower head straight for our oceans causing great pain to our precious sea life and mother nature as a whole. And that’s not all, this toxic plastic is even reaching us humans. Put simply, the oceans smallest fish eat the microbeads thinking they’re food, the bigger fish eat these small fish and us humans eat the big fish. A tale even more terrifying than Roald Dahl’s, The Witches, we’re sure you’ll agree.
That’s why we’re on a mission. A mission to revolutionise natural products and save our fishes. If we had it our way, every bathroom cabinet and kitchen cupboard through the land would be jam-packed with coconut based products but for now let’s start with some all-natural scrubs, a wonderful replacements for plastic-based beauty products.
