Microbeads have been banned in personal care products in the USA and Europe but there are still old products left on shelves and in our own vanities/bathroom cabinets. If you don’t know what microbeads are by name, then you will know them by nature. They are the little ball type things that you can probably find in the majority of the bath and shower products that you own, the little balls that are intended to provide things like exfoliation and extra scrubbing sensations for your body. These feelings might be good at the moment, but the sad truth is that the plastic that microbeads are made from ends up going down your drain and adding to the insanely huge problem of plastic in the environment. They make their way to the ocean where they end up becoming β€œfood” for the fishes and other marine creatures- not good! Here is how you can help the environment by stopping using your products that contain them. Here are some natural alternatives to microbeads.

1. Brown Sugar and Honey

One tablespoon of brown sugar with one tablespoon of honey combine together to create a great natural exfoliant. It gives a gentle but effective scrub with deep cleansing properties thanks to the honey and exfoliating properties thanks to the sugar. And no plastic pieces in sight!
