Some good (little) news for the sea. Goodbye, plastic cotton buds.
Plastic cotton buds are the number one item of plastic, sewage-related debris found on our beaches and rivers, according to the last year’s Marine Conservation Society’s Great British Beach Clean.
The switch to paper handles began on Monday, and the new products will be on shop shelves in Britain within the coming weeks. Johnson & Johnson said it will prevent tens of thousands of tonnes of plastic reaching the seas.
