join the glitterati

Who said you can’t have fun and be eco-conscious at the same time?

Sometimes trying to live an eco-friendly life can paint you into a corner. In this early stage of awareness, good alternatives are not always available and it sometimes feels like the sparkle has been taken out of life. So I’m excited to have got a hold of some fun eco-friendly glitter.

Glitter, currently made from plastic, has come under scrutiny as the conversation around microplastics has hit an all time high. Microplastics have come under the spotlight after cosmetics using tiny plastic beads in their products were banned in several countries in 2015 onwards, issuing new reforms on plastics used in other industries as well.

Plastic production has grown exponentially in recent decades and is predicted to double again by 2025 according to WHO (World Health Organisation). Although microplastics don’t have an impact on human life as yet, the effects on marine wildlife have been staggering and upsetting to say the least.

Bioglitter® is the eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic based glitter. It uses cellulose from hardwoods, primarily eucalyptus, and then coated with natural resins. It’s 100% biodegradable and compostable, which means it will break down in your compost and waterways. And of course it’s vegan.

Bioglitter® is distributed by several vendors, so the trick is to find someone who is packaging it in eco-friendly way as well.
