Sign to Keep Microbeads Out of the Food Chain

Researchers have found that Lake Erie has the second-highest concentration of microbeads of all the Great Lakes – and these tiny plastics are ending up in the fish we eat.
Microbeads are the scrubbers in our toothpaste and face washes, and they’re ending up in our water supply. There’s no way to remove microbeads once they’re in the water, so states like Illinois are banning products that include them. Pennsylvania’s lakes are at a huge risk, including Lake Erie, but state officials still haven’t taken action.
Sign our petition to tell Pennsylvania lawmakers to step up and help keep microbeads out of our water. If enough of us speak up, we can force lawmakers to make this a priority.
