‘If you use glitter, clean it and throw it in the trash instead of washing it with water’, says scientist

Biodegradable glitter also causes damage to the environment, just like ordinary glitter, according to a study conducted in the United Kingdom.

The demand for the ecological version of this product, which is quite popular at Carnival, increased after scientists pointed out that the small shiny plastic particles of the original version reach rivers and seas through the sewage system and take years to degrade.

Traditional glitter consists of a plastic core made of polyester PET film, which is coated with aluminum and then covered with another thin layer of plastic.
