Introducing Biodegradable Glitter
Our change to biodegradable glitter
Did you know that most glitter is composed of micro-plastics which can find their way into rivers and oceans, and are extremely harmful to our ocean and aquatic life?
After 3 years of working with vendors, doing the research, and implementing the findings, we are proud to say that we have finally made the switch to biodegradable glitter!
Bio Glitter is beautifully-colored, finely-cut pieces of cellulose, which is made from a variety of sustainably grown, GMO-free plants with minimal environmental impact.
How sustainable is bio glitter?
Once bio glitter enters the natural environment such as an outside field or wastewater, microbes will consume the biodegradable content turning it into carbon dioxide, water & biomass, leaving a minute amount of inert material behind.
While currently, no glitter is 100% biodegradable, Bio Glitter is 92% biodegradable and committed to being an earth-friendly choice. The speed of biodegradability depends upon local environmental factors, such as heat, moisture, And the concentration of microbes. There is no PLA in any products.
