Unilever is taking a big step in protecting marine life and ultimately us, too. It turns out that the plastic beads in your exfoliating body wash are more harmful to the environment than you might think. These tiny non-biodegradable pieces head down your drain, enter the ocean, and are later ingested by sea creatures. Studies show that these tiny particles can also transport contaminants to the animals potentially being consumed by humans. Unilever (owners of Dove and Vaseline) is taking action. The company vows to phase out plastic exfoliants by 2015. Until then, you can take responsibility in reducing the ocean's landfills by opting for sugar or salt scrubs over marine-killing microbeads.
