Microbeads
Posted by Somersfield Academy, Bermuda on 30 May 2015

We learned that micro-beads are tiny pieces of plastic found in products and are harmful to the environment. They get in the sea animals’ bodies after they eat them thinking they are part of the water. We scanned some items that people brought in to see which had polyetholene and then we got to look under a microscope to see if we could identify the microbead. It was pretty scary to think that people wash their face with plastic and then let it run down the drain.
