Glitter or Litter?

Here’s our handy guide to help you learn the difference between traditional plastic glitter and biodegradable glitter

What is bio glitter made of?

Projekt Glitter’s products are made from natural plant-based film (cellulose). The film is made from the fibers of eucalyptus trees, sourced from responsibly managed plantations. This means that once the glitter is in the natural environment, microbes consume it, causing no harm to Mother Earth.

How long does it take for bio glitter to decompose?

In general, biodegradation requires four things: heat, water, oxygen and microorganisms. These elements are naturally found in soil, compost, and water environments. Exactly how long the breakdown process is varies depending on these conditions. In the right environment it usually takes 2-3 months to degrade.

What are the ingredients of bio glitter?

Ingredients: 72% Cellulose, 11% Glycerin, 6% Aqua, 5% Styrene, 3% Urea, 3% Pigments, 0.1% Aluminium
