i’d never thought about the plastic in face soap before reading the article in the above link. i don’t think i’ve ever bought soap with tiny plastic beads in it, but i’ve definitely used it at a friend’s or relative’s home before. it’s unfortunate that the tiny beads inside the soap are actually plastic. one would think that it could be made of something else to do the same job. contemplating the volume of plastic entering wastewater systems each day just from face soap and toothpaste is quite depressing. the world is full of unnecessary waste and people who don’t even know they’re contributing.
