Law Proposal in Italy to ban microbeads

On May 23rd, 2016 the Italian NGO Marevivo proposed a law at the Italian Parliament, demanding a complete ban concerning the use of microplastics in cosmetic products by 2019.

The proposal is supported by about 100 MPs. Marevivo is confident to reach a majority by November when the Parliament will vote on the proposal. The law proposal defines microplastics as any particle of plastic measuring 5 mm or less. The proposal forbids both, the production and the selling of care products with microplastics from 1th January 2019.
