With glitter being used all the time for going out, partying and being an essential festival fashion item, glitter is the perfect party accessory. The problem with standard glitter is that it's produced from plastic. As a result, any normal glitter entering the natural environment will contribute to the microplastic pollution crisis. 

Our Biodegradable Glitter is produced from renewable resources, and can fully biodegrade in natural marine environments. This makes Biodegradable Glitter the perfect eco-friendly alternative to standard glitter. 

Why Eco-Friendly?

There are many reasons as to why being environmentally friendly is important, but we are going to focus on a few here. This is because there are many sources who wash over the subject, without much depth. 

Plastic can affect coral reefs in a negative capacity. With reefs being a crucial lifeline to many businesses, homes and communities around the world, they are needed to support lives globally. 

Coral reefs play a key part in supporting the marine food chain, by fixing aquatic nitrogen. Fixing nitrogen entails converting molecular nitrogen into products that other marine organisms can use for cell growth, and other mechanisms that are necessary to survival. 

Without this key process of converting nitrogen, many organisms at each trophic level in the marine food chain could be at risk of lacking in food, resulting in declining numbers. 

But how do coral reefs get affected by plastic debris? 

When plastic comes into contact with coral reefs, it has the potential to puncture the skin of the coral, which is a process known as coral abrasion. This has the potential to increase disease rates in coral due to plastic debris carrying persistent organic pollutants, as well as hydrophobic pathogens. Because these microorganisms are attracted to any solid surface, in order to thrive, marine plastic debris has the potential to carry disease.

When marine plastic debris punctures the skin of coral, these pathogens are then released into the coral. This means that the disease will spread through the coral, effectively killing it from the inside out. 

By minimizing plastic, and in some cases completely eradicating it in our eco-friendly gifts, our gifts do not contribute to this process. 

As well as larger pieces of plastic, microplastics (pieces of plastic less than 5 mm in all dimensions) also pose a threat to organisms in the natural environment. 

Microplastics can either be primary or secondary. Primary microplastics are formed below the maximum size of 5 mm in all dimensions, whereas secondary microplastics are formed from larger pieces of plastic breaking down.

The long term effects of microplastics are still being researched, but they have already been studied to kill immune cells three times faster than immune cells that did not come into contact with microplastics. 

Microplastics have the potential to build up in the food chain, which has been studied to occur in the marine environment. Entering the marine food chain at the lowest trophic levels, microplastics can be ingested by microorganisms like zooplankton. 

Through the trophic transfer of microplastics, plastic content can build up at each trophic level. This results in larger predators, including humans, having plastic content embodied. 

In Conclusion

Hopefully we have given an insight into our eco-friendly gifts, and why they are great alternatives to traditional christmas gifts! 

By reducing the amount of plastic in our gifts, we are reducing the potential for microplastic pollution. In turn, we are reducing the potential for disease rates increasing in coral reefs, as well as plastic content building up in the marine food chain.
