Beat the Microbead

Beat the Microbead


More and more cosmetics contain microbeads, tiny plastic beads. These microplastics are a hazard to our environment.
It can be hard to determine if a product contains these microbeads. The North Sea Foundation (Stichting de Noordzee) and the Plastic Soup Foundation have developed an app to easily check if a product contains microbeads.
With this app you can check if a product contains microbeads by just scanning the barcode with your Android device camera.
This new version of the APP recognizes many more products and has localised product listings. New countries are continuously added, so chances are that your country is included or will be included soon. Beat the Micro Bead is now a truly worldwide campaign!

VERY BAD translations. Something must've gone wrong in this app, as when you use it it uses a mixture of English, French and German words, sometimes creating made-up words. This makes for very confusing navigation round the app and it's pointless using it anyway - after using the scanner, the app force-closes. Good idea about the microbeads, but desperately needs major bug fixes

Great concept but... This is an important idea and a great cause but this app needs some more work. Please have a list of plastic ingredients on the info page so users can tell if a product has plastic microbeads. The list is currently only available if you scan a product first. Also, the red/white switch is not labeled as to what it indicates.
