In September 2013, Fauna & Flora International officially launched the first version of the ‘Good Scrub Guide’ featuring 16 brands and 35 plastic free products, the Guide has been produced following effective engagement with UK cosmetic and personal care companies.
Phase two of the project will start to engage with companies continuing to use microplastics in their products. In further support of the Guide, FFI has partnered with their Dutch counterparts and initiators of the highly successful ‘Beat the Micro Bead’ campaign to produce an internationally functional smartphone App to allow consumers to scan products to check for the presence of microbeads.
This app was launched in October 2013 at the UNEP GLOC-2 conference in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Check out the App here.
