Our approach on Microbeads
We are aware of environmental concerns around the usage of certain types of plastic microbeads*. No Market Place own-brand rinse-off personal care or cosmetic product contains microbeads and we have already banned microbeads from new product developments of Market Place own-brand products since early 2016.
We are proactively communicating with other rinse-off personal care or cosmetic product suppliers to reiterate our concern on the usage of microplastics. We are also recommending our suppliers to switch to more environmentally-friendly alternatives.
Market Place has been working to take progressive steps in supporting and promoting environmental protection. We will continue to work with relevant stakeholders to introduce further environmental protection measures that we deem appropriate.
