The Microbead Dilemma

This Thank You Ocean Podcast was produced for the California Thank You Ocean Campaign by EarthNews Journal staff (Jerry Kay, Host and Chris Kay, Producer).

Did you know that personal care products such as the shampoo, facial cleanser, and even toothpaste you use at home can contribute to a massive plastic pollution problem? I talked with Anna Cummins, Executive Director of The 5 Gyres Institute, who explained the dangers of plastic “microbeads” that enter the ocean and endanger aquatic life as well as humans. Find out how you can help end this unnecessary pollution problem.
