As you know at Sassy, we LOVE glitter and it is something that is present in all our wax melt products. So, for all of you that don’t fancy losing that bit of sparkle, read on to find out why biodegradable glitter is top of our list.
What are the damaging effects of modern glitter?
Modern day glitter is typically made from metallic sheets of plastic, which is cut into very tiny pieces. Glitter which is made from plastic is classed as a micro plastic, if these minute materials enter our natural environment they can pollute our soil and water. Being easily undigested by our animal and fish friends, which can lead to all sort of health issues.
What is Biodegradable Glitter?
Plastic glitter will take years to decompose and most will end up in the ocean. However, with bio glitter little micro-organisms found in places like the soil and the sea will eat it over a period of months and that’s how it breaks down. Clever!
Why we use biodegradable glitter?
At Sassy Shop Wax we care about the environment and how are products are made, all our wax melts contain biodegradable glitter except for when unique shaped glitter is used. Nevertheless, once these become available in the world of glitter Sassy will snap them up straight away.
Last year we only used 150g of non-bio glitter but this year so far, we’ve used 5000g of bio glitter.
That’s a big difference and we want to keep making these changes to our business that we believe can make an impact, no matter how small.
