Dear Minister McKenna:
There is no need to give pollution a chance to overwhelm our water and enter our food chain. Plastic microbeads are considered a toxin by your own scientists, and there is no need for them to be in personal care products like face cream and toothpaste. If an abrasive, non-toxic substance is desired by manufacturers and consumers, use sand.
End the consultation period now, and proceed with the ban immediately. During health studies of new drugs, if they are found by science to cause obvious harm or benefit, the testing may end early. This is no different. Microbeads should not have been approved in the first place (if they ever were approved). They remain on the shelves of Real Canadian Superstore today, and it’s a disgrace they haven’t been recalled.
