Glitterazzi Biodegradable Glitter
I'm M. While living in Berlin, I trained and worked as a makeup artist. A glitter lover, I used all glitters frequently in my makeup artistry. One day while washing glitter from my face, it dawned on me “Glitter is plastic" and that I was literally washing plastic, worse, washing microplastics into down the drain into our waterways.” I promised not to use glitter again until I could find the most eco-friendly alternative.
Biodegradable glitter is more than just a business, at Glitterazzi we want to create a movement. Like biodegradable plastics, glitter alternatives are not all made equal. Misleading and confusing information on what’s biodegradable vs degradable can be confusing for consumers who want to make an eco-friendly choice. Not to mention greenwashing, with companies claiming bio when it’s simply just not.
That's why Glitterazzi only uses glitter made from a special form of eucalyptus cellulose rather than polyester. It is the only glitter available on the market that is proven independently to degrade into harmless substances in the natural environment. It's not only biodegradable but also compostable.
We try to do everything as sustainably and as environmentally thoughtfully as possible. We limit the plastic in our packaging and select packaging that can be reused. “We try to recycle, reuse and repurpose everything, especially when it comes to packing our customer's orders. If you order from us it will likely come in a recycled box or salvage present wrapping because glitter should never be litter.
Let glitter shine again, but only if it's biodegradable!
We do everything we can to be true to respect our environment. We are dedicated to minimal packaging and use the least possible amount of plastic if any at all. All our shipping and wrapping is repurposed. We reduce, reuse and recycle.
