    I have just read the metro article and honestly I had no idea that a lot of the cheap glitter that I used to and still do love is nothing more than just plain old bioluminescent plastic. More so I had no idea that half of it was being flushed or tossed into lakes. 92% of the world's water, it has me thinking of just how truly polluted lakes and oceans are. I love how Lush is continuously making strides to be eco friendly I wish that other businesses would follow suit, but unfortunately greed is a force that is strong in so many. So I have a question, this just sounds so stupid but I need to know, because again 92%. the shimmering glow from the water, is that from the glitter floating around in it? I promise I'm not an idiot it's. Just I have to know because 92%, I'm mortified and just stunned

    In Theatre, we hate glitter because you *will* keep finding it for years. I bet I can go in the tech booth and still find some flakes from a show two years ago where we poured some over a balcony to a bin below. At my University, its banned from being used in graduation videos because it doesnt decompose. It doesnt get picked up and it is bad for the environment. Yeah.

    But in moderation, and if done right, you can use it for things I think. Just dont go outside and toss a whole bottle around. Make sure you clean up after yourself. You get the idea.
