Our Promise to the Planet

At Projekt Glitter, we believe that celebrating life’s most joyful moments shouldn’t come at the earth's expense. That's why we've committed to creating products that not only enhance your fun but also protect the planet. Here's how:

Supporting Global Clean-Up Efforts

Each purchase you make helps fund global initiatives focused on plastic collection and recycling, ensuring that our oceans and natural landscapes remain pristine for generations to come.

These programs not only prevent plastic from reaching landfills or polluting marine environments but also create employment opportunities for countless individuals in communities.

Plant-Based Glitter

Our glitter comes from natural, plant-based materials that break down quickly and safely in the environment. It's made from eucalyptus cellulose responsibly sourced in the EU, and produced right here in Germany. This means we're not just cutting back on harmful plastics, but also supporting responsible forestry and keeping things local.

Our biodegradable glitter breaks down naturally within 6 months, leaving no harmful microplastics behind.

Bio Glitter FAQs

Is your biodegradable glitter vegan?

The answer is both yes and no. At Projekt Glitter, we offer two distinct glitter collections: Sparkle and Pearlescent. Each collection has a unique composition that aligns with our mission of promoting sustainable beauty.

Our Sparkle Collection is vegan, but contains a small amount (6%) of plastic. While we're striving to completely eliminate plastic from our products, it's currently necessary as we continue to innovate and improve our technology. We're not perfect yet, but we're dedicated to this journey.

In contrast, our Pearlescent collection is 100% free of plastic. However, it contains shellac, a natural product derived from the resin secreted by the female lac bug. Although shellac isn't considered vegan, we ensure that it's ethically sourced, causing no harm to any bugs during the extraction process.

Transparency is crucial to us, and we appreciate your consideration of Projekt Glitter for sustainable sparkle.

How long does it take for the bio glitter to breakdown?

The decomposition time can vary depending on the composting conditions. However, in ideal conditions—warm, wet, and full of microorganisms—it can break down in a few months - a vast improvement on traditional glitter which can take hundreds of years to decompose.

Where does the bio glitter from Projekt Glitter come from?

Project Glitter's bio glitter is sourced from sustainable sources and produced right here in Germany. We make a point of supporting environmentally friendly practices from sourcing to production.

Is your bio glitter safe for the ocean?

Yes, our glitter biodegrades in sea water and can be anaerobically digested, meaning it can be broken down by our fish friends too!

If biodegradable glitter is accidently ingested by marine life, it is metabolized naturally, unlike traditional glitter, which remains in the animal and accumulates up the food chain.

In short, biodegradable glitter poses no threat to the ocean or the life within it - smooth sailing!
