Korea ranks very high for cosmetics use. However, the Korean government has not shown the initiative in regulating the wide use of microbeads. The most certain and effective way to stop the microbeads and microplastic pollution is to ban them in all personal care products.
On 8th July 2016, Greenpeace East Asia Seoul launches a “My Little Plastic” campaign to demand the government to ban the microbeads and to ask people to voice out their concerns through a petition.

Microbeads are non-biodegradable microplastics. Their tiny size makes it impossible to be filtered out by the sewage system. Microbeads can be found in cosmetics and personal care products such as toothpaste, body wash and facial scrub. Once discharged to the oceans, microbeads can be ingested by small marine animals mistaking them for food. A research also shows that microplastics may absorb toxic chemicals and pollutants in the ocean.
