Everyone loves using glitter, especially during the music festivals season because it is a great way to shine and sparkle at the music festival. But the aftermath of such usage is destructive and harmful for the environment. Glitter is made up of small particles of plastic that are barely 5 milimeters in length and contribute to marine plastic litter once they enter the natural water bodies such as rivers, lakes and oceans. Glitter is a type of micro-plastic that when consumed by organisms associated with the marine habitat such as fish, planktons, seashells and sea birds can prove to be fatal because the small plastic particles collect in the stomach of these living creatures which then die due to starvation.
To reduce the effects of micro-plastic pollution and damages caused by polyester-based glitter products around 61 music festivals in the UK have signed up to ban the use of plastic based glitter including major music festivals such as Kendal Calling, Boardmasters, Bestival. Some festivals such as Shindig and Shambala have asked the people attending the festival to not bring glitter along with them. Due to this glitter suppliers are asked to look for eco-friendly and biodegradable glitter.
We understand the importance of protecting the environment from the disastrous effects of plastic pollution. Glitter is a beautiful thing, but due to its ugly nature and effects on the environment we along with Blue sun international give you the opportunity to shine at the festival without destroying the environment. This is possible thanks to Ronald Britton who has created and manufactured the world’s best environmentally friendly glitter Bioglitter everyone can enjoy the music festivals with sparkly face designs and glittered bodies without guilt and effects on the environment.
Bioglitter Sparkle is the product of Ronald Britton’s hard work, dedication and commitment to reducing the harmful and negative effects on glitter on the environment. It is the world’s first environment-friendly and biodegradable glitter which is 92% plastic free compared to its competitors. Bioglitter is made from a special type of cellulose, unique to Bioglitter which replaces the plastic film used at the core of traditional glitter. The cellulose is derived from Eucalyptus trees sourced from responsibly managed plantations operating to FSC® or PEFC™ standards.
The eco-friendly substances used to create Bioglitter give it unique properties which allow it to remain stable and fresh on shelf but once it enters the natural environment such as landfills, water bodies, compost, soil, fresh water and other areas where micro-organisms are present, it is quickly and easily digested by the microbes which turn it into carbon dioxide and biomass.
If you’re a glitter supplier or an individual who wants to sparkle at the music festivals you probably want to learn more. Free resources like www.discoverbioglitter.com will teach you about the true naturally biodegradable glitter. You will find authorised resellers (only one approved in the US).

Year 2019 marks a big change in attitude to glitter, with programmes like Blue Planet from Chanel BBC (https://www.bbcearth.com/shows/blue-planet/) driving awareness of micro plastic pollution. As a result, we see a huge drive both from glitter lovers, retailers and cosmetic brands to move to eco-friendly glitter options.
