Glitter... or litter? How to tell the difference between biodegradable eco glitter and traditional plastic glitter

Wendy May

Biodegradable glitter is becoming a big trend now. We love seeing that so many people are choosing to sparkle more consciously!

The down side is there are a lot of fake eco-glitter businesses popping up everywhere. And it's not easy to tell the difference with the naked eye...That's why we put together this handy guide to help you be a more savvy eco-glitter buyer. There are a few key ways to know what's genuinely ethical, conscious glitter and what's microplastic pollution in disguise!

Be wary of biodegradable glitter brands that have sold conventional plastic glitter at some point in the past. We applaud businesses that are making the switch to biodegradable. We are all making a positive difference together! But unfortunately, we also see some glitter brands that are unloading their old plastic glitter inventory by passing it off as eco-glitter.

Does your eco-glitter provider demonstrate a sustainable ethos throughout all parts of their business? Please consider the big picture before you buy. When in doubt, ask the company to share their product's safety data sheet and technical data sheet and demand full transparency!
