Illinois, Maine, New Jersey and Colorado have passed similar phased-in bans. Legislation is pending in several states, including California, New York, and Washington. The tiny microbeads have an impact on our environment posing a threat to the ecosystem of rivers and waterways downstream from waste water treatment plants that cannot remove.

You may want to determine whether any of your suggested maintenance green cleaning products contain this gentle abrasive ingredient.
