Woman launches campaign to ban microbeads after she’s finished her shower gel


A WOMAN has launched a campaign to ban microbeads as soon as she has finished a particularly expensive bottle of shower gel. 

Carolyn Ryan of Congleton came up with the ‘Ban Microbeads in 12-18 Weeks’ campaign after seeing Greenpeace’s ‘Ban Microbeads’ campaign and realising she would be personally affected.

She said: “I absolutely agree that microbeads are being washed down the drain and ending up adversely affecting the marine ecosystem. But what they perhaps have not considered is the human cost of the ban, for example if someone who got an Elemis gift set for Christmas still has half the body scrub left.

“All I’m asking is for a grace period of three to four months to finish this bottle, after which I’ll be behind Greenpeace 100 per cent.

“Otherwise I’ll have to pour it down the sink.”

Your astrological week ahead, with Psychic Bob

Aries (21 MAR-19 APRIL)
On Monday you learn the difference between ‘minor act of rebellion’ and ‘sackable offence’ when you stop stealing Post It Notes and start stealing post.

Taurus (20 APRIL–20 MAY)
Money, work and sex all feature heavily in your sign this week, so this might be the perfect time to become a prostitute.

Gemini (21 MAY-20 JUN)
This week you will be pondering the various arguments in the EU referendum before deciding you’ll vote for the side with the least amount of creepy, weird bastards.

Cancer (21 JUN-22 JUL)
You’ve always been proud of being prepared to say things others haven’t got the guts to say, as well as not knowing the difference between ‘guts’ and ‘common decency’. 

Leo (23 JUL-22 AUG)
Those Sky Q adverts are great, really eye-catching and memorable. You’re definitely going to get Sky Q the minute they explain what the fuck it is. 

Virgo (23 AUG-22 SEP)
Type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, type 3 to speak to a customer service advisor.

Libra (23 SEP-23 OCT)
Pisces tend to like eating fish, and Taurus beef. As a Libra, your preferred dish is JUSTICE.

Scorpio (24 OCT-21 NOV)
Just your luck to sit next to a really rude couple in a restaurant this Friday. If they’re not calling you weird for eating pizza with a knife and fork they’re telling you to order your own.

Sagittarius (22 NOV-21 DEC)
Surprisingly, your exhortation to ‘Make the pornography you want to see in the world’ hasn’t gone viral on Facebook. Maybe if you superimpose it over a sunset?
Capricorn (22 DEC-19 JAN)
Bad romantic news on Saturday, when you ask a guy in a nightclub if he hurt himself when he fell down from heaven and it turns out to be Lucifer, who answers yes then takes you back to his place. 

Aquarius (20 JAN-19 FEB)
As Aquarius is the water-carrier, it’s no surprise you’re always carrying water. Well, vodka in an Evian bottle, but nobody can tell. 

Pisces (20 FEB-20 MAR)
Trouble at work on Monday when your boss gently explains that ‘punching the clock’ is a euphemism and presents you with a sizeable repair bill.
