More and more cosmetics contain microbeads, tiny plastic beads. These microplastics are a hazard to our environment. It can be hard to determine if a product contains these microbeads. The North Sea Foundation (Stichting de Noordzee) and the Plastic Soup Foundation have developed an app to easily check if a product contains microbeads. With this app you can check if a product contains microbeads by just scanning the barcode with your Windows Phone camera. This new version of the APP recognizes many more products and has localised product listings. New countries are continuously added, so chances are that your country is included or will be included soon. Beat the Micro Bead is now a truly worldwide campaign!
