The many uses of glitter in everyday life represent a significant contribution to plastic pollution, and although the damage is huge the use of glitter will not stop as it is seen as essential in celebrations. How can suppliers offer an alternative to help the environment?
Glitter demand has not stopped since it was invented in the last century, but its constant use is resulting in a terrible environmental pollution, so the question is obvious: is glitter toxic for our planet? If so, how can we stop using it? Here we will learn the right answer and what to do about it.
Is Glitter Toxic?
The way we have been using glitter for many decades is definitely toxic. We have mainly used plastic based glitter, and as we know the danger of having plastics in the ocean – which is where plastic glitter normally ends up – is that it kills marine life and it has a direct effect on our seafood diet.
If Glitter Is Toxic, Why Do We Use It?
The reason is that glitter is fascinating, as simple as that. There might be regulations to stop manufacturing products containing micro-plastics, but the glitter demand will continue. People may think “if it is just a little bit of garbage, what damage can it cause?”, but a thought like that can only make things worse.
We Need an Eco Friendly Solution!
We need a plastic glitter alternative, one that is also environmentally friendly. Bioglitter Sparkle and Bioglitter Pure are the best eco-friendly solutions in the market right now. However, they need to become mainstream so it becomes the new standard in glitter. Companies offering Bioglitter Sparkle and Bioglitter Pure will be one step ahead than their competition.
How Do You Make Glitter Environmentally Friendly?
The new eco-glitter needs to be biodegradable in order to be environmentally friendly, it has to decompose in the natural environment and disappear a few weeks after being used. The best way to achieve this is using only natural and plant derived materials instead of the core plastic film traditionally used in standard glitter.
Bioglitter Pure and Bioglitter Sparkle
They are the only option that meet all the requirements to be considered as the real eco-friendly solution to plastic glitter.
