Rituals let us know that from now on, the Wai Wang scrub is also free from microbeads. The polyethylene components have now been replaced by silica and bamboo.
After unanimous support to ban microbeads in Maine a bill banning synthetic microbeads went into law. Microbeads will now be phased out for the next few years in Maine, with the ban going into full effect in 2019. Illinois was the first state to do so.
"Environment Canada is currently reviewing whether or not to ban plastic micro beads, this is the perfect time to educate ourselves and speak up to protect one of Canada's most beautiful and sacred commodities, our Water." Please sign the petition.
