Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!! Bad news crafty people, glitter is terrible for the environment. Not only is it an ecological hazard, but scientists are calling for a glitter ban.

But what about our Christmas decorations? And birthday cards? And mums!!!! How are we supposed to make anything without glitter?

So here’s the deal, glitter is considered a microplastic, which means it’s a plastic less than five millimeters in length. Because it’s so small, it’s considered a danger to pets and animals, including ocean wildlife. In a study by Professor Richard Thompson, a third of all fish caught in Great Britain contained plastics.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t stop at just glitter. Even your microbead-filled facial wash is damaging the environment too.

Ok, so any ideas for a possible glitter substitute?
