Tompkins County Bans Microbeads!

In New York, Tompkins County has officially passed the budget unanimously to ban products containing Microbeads in all Tompkins County stores. They will have a six month transitional period for store owners to clear out products containing Microbeads and inform their retailers of the recent shift. Once the six month grace period has been fulfilled, store inspectors will be sent out to assure no Microbead products are left behind, otherwise the store will be fined up to $2,500 per day the product is on their shelves.
     Although Tompkins County is small in comparison to all of New York every small step counts in the protection of our environment. Heres to another ban to Microbeads!
