We all know that festivals and glitter go hand in hand… but with the huge problem of single use plastic, does this mean we have to rely on our inner sparkle and ditch this festival essential?
Did you know that the size of glitter makes it especially environmentally hazardous, especially as it makes it’s way to the oceans. These microplastics not only carry disease but they look like tasty food to marine life meaning they ingest the particles and essentially die from starvation…
This is incredibly sad and scary, but… we have good news! Whilst there has been much in the media about bio glitters, which claim to be biodegradable yet still take hundreds of years to decompose we have discovered there is actually a plant based alternative made by the awesome Eco Stardust!!!
You heard right, they can now make glitter from plants! In fact, sustainably farmed eucalyptus trees to be exact which means the glitter bio degrades in just 4 weeks… This meant it was a no brainer for us to provide Eco Stardust for our boutique guests this summer!
As if all that wasn’t enough they also have a 'Non Bio Glitter Amnesty’, that’s right, you can send them all your plastic based glitter, including your crafty bits and pieces. This will then be cleverly made into jewellery using recycled resin (from surfboards!) and you receive a 15% off voucher by way of thanks meaning you can replace it all with a zero impact alternative!
We are super proud to help you get festival ready with the awesome Eco Stardust!
