Eco-friendly packaging for all our biodegradable glitter is LIVE!

Since we started Wild Glitter in 2017, making the move to plastic free packaging has been top of our agenda. Unfortunately, as a small start up the cost of plastic free packaging was prohibitive unless we could afford to order large quantities, which at the time we couldn't. Fast forward a year, and in honour of Plastic Free July we're over the moon to announce the launch of our all new eco-friendly packaging, as well as our brand new Superchunky Bioglitter, and a whole new colour - peony purple biodegradable glitter! Sustainability is at the heart of what we do at Wild Glitter, and we've done our best to be as environmentally friendly as possible when considering our packaging choices. We faced...

Glitter ban! Nurseries and schools join the fight against microplastics.

In a move that has brought a huge amount of attention to the fight against microplastics, a group of nurseries in Southern England has made the decision to ban glitter from their Christmas craft activities this year.  If you're worried that this means the end of Christmas sparkle, fear not! Wild Glitter bio-glitter is a biodegradable alternative to the plastic stuff, and it's here to put the twinkle back into your Christmas crafts!  Wild Glitter is based on a film made from sustainably sourced wood pulp from FSC certified plantations. It looks and behaves just like plastic glitter, but it's much kinder to the environment. As well as being biodegradable, it is also cosmetic grade and antimony-free, unlike most craft glitters.

Wild Glitter at Yoga Hub Fest

Biodegradable glitter is a must for any yoga festival, so we were stoked to be asked to be the glitterists in residence at Yoga Hub Fest, near Newquay this September. The weekend was like no other festival I’ve ever been to, with festival goers replacing pints of cider with turmeric latte and Yogi Teas, and the only sound being the occasional resounding chorus of oms, and the chilled music floating across the site from Yogabeats with YogaJane. If you thought that the chilled atmosphere and lack of booze and drugs might mean a distinct lack of sparkle, you’d be mistaken! Our first ever festival biodegradable glitter bar saw a steady stream of Yogis coming in to get sparkled ethically, and it was...

Biodegradable glitter at The Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture

When we were asked by the Andrew Logan Museum recently to provide biodegradable glitter for their annual fashion show, we jumped at the chance! Andrew Logan is an eccentric British artist, sculptor, and a prolific lover of all things glittery, whose sculpture and jewellery often includes glittery resin holding together shards of mirror or other found objects. We went along to photograph the models getting glittered before the show, and were excited to see the sparkling creations our bioglitter would be going alongside. We weren't disappointed - just look at the colourful costumes and amazing pieces of oversized jewellery that were on show. It's worth noting that Andrew doesn't use biodegradable glitter in his artworks, though it did occur to us here at...
