Let’s Ban the Bead!

No matter where you live, there are ways to take action to protect our waterways and put a stop to polluting plastic microbeads! This 2-minute short takes on plastic microbeads—the nasty little bits of plastic that companies have been putting in everything from body washes and hand soaps to toothpaste and make up. In it, we show how microbeads are actually designed to go down the drain and into our rivers, lakes, and oceans…and what folks like us can do to stop this ridiculous assault on our public waters.

Since this movie was produced in 2015, the United StatesCanada, France, Taiwan, South Korea, New Zealand and more countries have announced bans, while other countries like Ireland and India are well on their way towards a ban. Is YOUR country next?


This microbeads short was written by Michael O’Heaney, Stiv Wilson,  Allison Cook, Erica Priggen and Ruben DeLuna and produced by Free Range Studios.
