Just a day after a cross-party group of MPs called on the Government to ban microbeads, a new Greenpeace report lays out the science on the impact of microplastics, including microbeads, on our oceans and our seafood.

The report, which collates the latest academic research, identifies the risks of these tiny plastics spreading toxic chemicals, being eaten by marine life and even travelling up the food chain to the seafood on our plates.
