Eco Glitter Australia
Eco Glitter is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional plastic based glitter.
Do you like glitter? We love it! Unfortunately old fashioned plastic glitter has added to the current micro-plastic problem as it only degrades (breaks down into smaller bits) after hundreds of years. That is why environmentally friendly Eco Glitter was developed.
What makes Three Mamas Eco Glitter, Eco friendly?
Eco Glitter is environmentally friendly primarily because instead of being printed onto a non-recyclable plastic base, it's made from NON- GMO Eucalyptus cellulose. Being a plant material, it is biodegradable, compostable and renewable.
How does the eco in Eco glitter work?
Once Eco Glitter enters the natural environment - like a festival ground, your backyard, school yard, lake, river, compost, etc - microbes will consume the biodegradable content, turning it into carbon dioxide, water and biomass.
The rate at which Eco Glitter biodegrades is dependant on the conditions of the local environment such as heat, moisture and microbes present.
Will Eco Glitter dissolve in water?
Eco glitter does not dissolve in water. It needs bacteria and other environmental microorganisms to biodegrade.
In a natural water environment eg: a lake or the ocean, it biodegrades as there are naturally occurring microorganisms.
How durable is Eco Glitter?
As long as it is not in contact with any microbes it is totally durable.
So yes, you can use it in all your craft activities.
