Microbeads.

Microbeads are tiny plastic particles found in some personal-care products that may be washed down the drain and end up in our waterways. These microbeads are used as abrasives in hundreds of everyday products including facial scrubs, soaps and toothpastes. Like other plastics, microbeads can absorb toxins commonly found in our waterways. Studies have shown that fish consume plastic, raising serious concerns about the impact of microbeads on our aquatic species.
