Eriksen believes many water treatment plants cannot filter out the tiny plastics, allowing them to flow into the ocean or waterways,where they can be mistaken for food. Big fish eat little fish, eventually the fish is on your dinner plate, Eriksen said. And youre eating that fish, along with all the toxins it consumed along the way. The Environmental Protection Agency is looking into potential dangers after Eriksen and his team uncovered high concentrations of microbeads in the Great Lakes. The same size, the same color, the same texture, in the same composition as the microbeads that we found [in the Great Lakes], we collected from common facial scrubbers on store shelves, Eriksen said. They were the same colorlittle blue and red perfect spheres. Several major cosmetic companies, including Procter & Gamble, Unilever, Johnson & Johnson, and Colgate-Palmolive have already pledged to phase out the use of microbeads. Johnson and Johnsons Senior Communications Director, Carol Goodrich, says the company will eliminate microbeads from half its products by the end of next year. We have stopped developing new products containing polyethylene microbeads and have been conducting environmental safety assessments of other alternatives, Goodrich said. These assessments are part of our informed substitution approach, which helps ensure that the alternatives we choose are safe and environmentally sound. The New York State Assembly passed legislation on Monday to ban the sale and distribution of products containing the tiny plastics. Lawmakers in California are considering following suit. Eriksen recently began searching for microbeads in the Los Angeles River and found what he believes are more of the tiny plastics. The shape is very distinctivea perfectly round little spherethats why its suspicious, Eriksen said.
