The Beat the Microbead App scans the barcode of personal care products informing the consumer whether or not the product contains plastic microbeads. Products are divided into the categories Red, Orange and Green.
Red: the product contains microbeads;
Orange: the product contains microbeads but the manufacturer has pledged to stop using microbeads in the near future;
Green: the product does not contain microbeads.
