Eco-Friendly Tip

Weekly Eco-friendly Tip from
Your LUC Green Team for Global Wellness:

 

The disposal of plastics continues to be a huge
environmental challenge, with 8 million tons of
plastic making its way into our oceans each year.

Microplastics or microbeads are less than 5 mm in
diameter and found in toiletries – products
intended for the cleansing or exfoliation of hair,
skin, teeth, or mouth. This microbeads are turning
up at many levels of the food chain. Canada has
banned the use of microbeads as of July of this
year. In the meantime, seek out products that do
not contain microbeads.

The LUC Green Team for Global Wellness is looking
for more members. If you are interested in joining
us in this valuable initiative, contact
margaret.casey@sympatico.ca or
janice.franklin@sympatico.ca for more
information.
