Demand that Colgate removes any product with micro plastics from the market

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

This year the UK Gov banned micro-beads. But there are still products on the shelves that contain micro plastics! Colgate Advanced White contains Polyethylene - Polyethylene or polythene (abbreviated PE; IUPAC name polyethene or poly(ethylene)) is the most common plastic. So people brush their teeth with this, and this goes down the drain and into the oceans. Waste water treatment plants are currently not able to remove all these products as the PE beads are often too small to be filtered out. 

Colgate should remove any products with micro plastics immediately and any shop that sells it should encourage this to happen.
