Planet is ‘swamped’ by plastic waste, UN chief says — here’s how to help

For every face and body scrub, toothpaste and exfoliator that contains microbeads — the tiny plastic particles labeled Polyethylene, Polypropylene terephthalate and Polymethyl methacrylate — there is another that has a natural, biodegradable alternative that won’t suffocate the life out of the world’s fish. Some offenders include Clean & Clear, Aveeno, Garnier, Kiehl’s and Neutrogena. Try Burt’s Bees, Origins or St. Ives instead.
