Microbeads – The Story of Stuff Project


storyofstuffproject – TRANSCEND Media Service

In two quick minutes we let viewers know all about microbeads—the tiny bits of plastic increasingly found in everything from facial scrubs and soap to toothpaste and makeup. Microbeads escape most water treatment plants and end up in our rivers, lakes and oceans by the billions. While there’s a lot of information out there about them, we’ve condensed everything you need to know—what they are, how to find them, and what we can do about them—in one video.
