They'd have to work better than microbeads, which are just useless.

I used to grind up aduki (sp?) beans to scrub my face occasionally. Got the idea from a scrub I bought from the Body Shop.

Pretty weird to be rubbing plastic (a petroleum product) into your skin. Who thought that was a good idea?

I don't buy scrubs, now I'm glad. Who thought these plastic balls were a good idea? I hope they take it off the market.

Awesome! You can use ground coffee grains also. If you are interested on more about microplastics this is a good read from Fauna & Flora International: http://www.fauna-flora.org/initiatives/marine-plastic-pollution/
