The Government is seeking views on its proposed ban on the sale and manufacture of plastic microbeads in personal care products in New Zealand. This is because microbeads are non-biodegradable and when ingested can lead to health issues for marine life and life higher on the food chain including humans. The proposed ban would involve an amendment to the Waste Minimisation Act 2008.
