Amazing News! Federal Government Has Announced Plan to #BanMicrobeads!
Jul 31, 2015 — We have finally received an answer from the federal government regarding Environment Canada's review into micro beads, and its great news!
The government announced on Thursday that microbeads will be banned nationwide! This process will begin with adding microbeads to Canada’s List of Toxic Substances which allows for regulation of the beads, followed by the development of rules to prohibit their production, import, and sale.
A massive thank you goes out to all who have signed and supported thus far! I believe that this petition helped gather the attention that was needed to keep the topic relevant in media and politics, ultimately leading to this plan to ban them!
