Newsflash: microbeads—aka the tiny balls of plastic found in many a facewash—are horrible for the environment. Once they go down your sink or shower drain, they typically end up in rivers, lakes and oceans where they are mistaken as food by fish. (And you could be eating that very same fish—just sayin'.) If you're not already living in a state that has banned these mini bandits (go Illinois, California, Indiana, Colorado, New Jersey, Maryland and Maine!) switch to one of these eco-friendly scrubs for a clear complexion and conscious.
