Get to Know EcoStardust
EcoStardust was launched in April 2017 and is an eco-conscious company selling biodegradable glitter made from a plant cellulose, derived predominantly from non-GMO sustainably farmed Eucalyptus Trees.
The idea came about when their founder threw a glitter themed Birthday Party with her friend. After buying kilos of glitter she saw the ingredients on the packaging and everything changed, once she realised she was covering herself and the world in little bits of plastic it took the sparkle out of it for her, therefore she started on a mission to find an alternative and this is how EcoStardust Biodegradable Glitter was created.
Their mission is to promote joy and spread happiness through their vibrant and high quality products whilst raising awareness of environmental issues and giving back to the world. They balance people, product and planet to ensure they serve all three.
All EcoStardust glitters be used on face, hair, body, nails as well as in crafts.
Better for the environment
With most music festivals taking place in agricultural or rural areas, the effects of standard plastic (non-biodegradable) glitter can be more noticeable than people think. In areas like that, the pollutants get contaminate local streams and creeks directly or pollute landlocked areas, where they sit in the soil and infuse it with whatever chemicals were used to make the glitter. This creates all sorts of problems for animals like fish and insects, which have really terrible effects further up the food chain, including on our health.
Here’s an example of how this problem directly impacts us. Picture this, once the glitter is washed away into the sea the fish will end up eating it since it doesn’t decompose or degrade. When we eat seafood fished from the sea, we are directly consuming that plastic, a poison that can have devastating long-term effects on our health. Using sustainable glitter eliminates that problem, keeping our ecosystems and our bodies cleaner.
