Many states and localities have taken the steps and voted against microbeads, effectively banning them. Oregon is not yet on that list, even though we're known as an environmentally friendly and green state. However, it looks like we could be the next to ban the Microbead. In April the Oregon House voted in favor of a ban. According to the data, the senate has yet to pass an outcome. Hopefully we will follow suit to California and localities in New York. Here is a link to the progress of the Oregon bill under review: Oregon Legislature. Here is a link to more detailed activity: Oregon Live bill tracker.
