Not all biodegradable glitter is the same

Not all biodegradable glitter is the same

Normal glitter is terrible for the environment as most are made from micro plastics that do not degrade and end up in the oceans where they are consumed by plankton, fish and birds. A build up of micro plastics in an animal will be eventually fatal.

Some research has also found that PET, the plastic most glitter is made from, can break down and release chemicals that can disrupt human and animal hormones.

Even worse is that some companies are selling misleading glitters that are labelled biodegradable, however they are made from Polylactic Acide, this material can only be biodegraded in an industrial composting machine.

Our glitter is different! Our EcoGlitter is made from a special form of cellulose primarily from eucalyptus sourced from responsibly managed and certified plantations. This material possesses excellent eco-credentials, in it being biodegradable in all environments; home compostable, approved soil, wastewater, freshwater and marine biodegradable.

You can glitter with confidence knowing that you're glittering without the littering!
