This deal or a similar one has been posted before - please be wary about these 'scrubbing beads', which are apparently really bad for the environment.

+1. I'll pay a bit more for something without microbeads.

Yeah I'll pass as well, those tiny plastic beads make it all the way to the wild where animals mistake them for food and eat them. They are impossible to remove from wastewater, it's extremely bad for the environment :(

Why does the government allow these to be sold?

I think by the start or end of 2018 they will be banned

They're actually already taking steps (albeit very very slow shuffling steps with a focus on cosmetics rather than household cleaners) towards banning them. US too. (Or at least they did under Obama, but who knows now...)

Will these in any way endanger or risk the habitat of mosquitoes? Because if so, I'm willing to buy them out and dump directly into any place that will make a difference.

thanks - great deal ordered lots. The company will sell out of these, eventually, and someone in Canada will use this. Whether it is you polluting the rivers or lakes, or is your neighbor, what difference does it make? Once they run out and people run out of these at home, then the problem ends.

Don't use micro scrubbing beads products. Don't let your child to eat more scrubbing beads in the future.

Unlike regulations and restsrictions, loss of market appeal is something a company can't cheat their way around. Until they're banned outright, the more you buy, the more they make. Think about it. Please don't support them until they stop using microbeads.

Once this stock is cleared they wont be allowed to use microbeads again. At least not in North America. Someone will buy this eventually and use this. It's just about getting rid of old stock.
