I don't seem to be able to correctly post the link. I have no idea why

Tesco's baby toothpaste contains plastic. Just wonderful.

Search for toothpaste 0-2 on Tesco website.

these beads are much worse than plastic carrier bags, these CEOs and public relations, manager are so greedy for money , they don't recognise that wildlife and plastics do not get along well and has been known scientifically for decades, known fact, taught from nursery school

Tesco said they don't need to make any changes as their beads were ground up horse.

Microbeads?

I thought they were some kind of titillation thing that you stick up your back passage!

If they were micro I think you were going it wrong ;)

I can't say I have. I wonder how that works them because baking soda isn't nearly as abrasive. I was going to say it is very alkali and can turn hair into felt. So I am not convinced it would be great long term, though they do get to that at the bottom of the article.

I have tried salt and sugar (not together), but it's not a patch on aluminium oxide.

You could try Wet/dry sand paper. Then when done just pour the dirty water into a field.
Alternatively with being a cat lover, have you tried cat tongue? Only second to chainsaw for abrasive speed.

nonsense, wildlife eating some microbeads is like you ingesting a few grains of sand.

It's a storm in a teacup.

Even my 6 time daily cat tongue bath can't deal with this skin. Poor cat, he tries so hard to fix me. He hasn't worked out it's a lost cause yet.

Wilko actually sell sandpaper for skin. Found it a bit unpleasant though. No wonder if in was on the reduced shelf.

Can't say I spend much time thinking about children, no.

For all you ladies wanting to remove your wrinkles and spots -

Dremel with a loofah on the end.

Job done.

It is truly shocking the amount of damage that our consumer choices have on the wider world, it's people's and environments.
Products people use daily, brands they trust often have hidden impacts both for the consumer and the wider world.
Google, and ethical consumer websites are plentiful with useful information.
It's hard to always make the right consumer decisions, but personally I think if people knew the stories behind a lot of everyday products they might think twice when choosing what to buy.
