Glitter Is Litter
We love the look of glitter on the face and body but we don't think polluting the planet to look pretty is cool.
Glitter is made from plastic sheets and used in a wide array of products, including cosmetics. When washed down the drain, glitter becomes a subset of marine plastic litter known as microplastic. Microplastics, which measure less than five millimeters in length, are found throughout the world’s oceans, from the surface to the deep sea floor. They are consumed by plankton, fish, shellfish, seabirds, and other marine life. Plastic bits collect in birds’ stomachs, where they can cause them to die of starvation. Scientists have become increasingly concerned about its effects on fish and other marine life.
So we came up with an alternative—DISCOLID. It is made with a sustainable biodegradable synthetic pearl particle and mica to create a glitter effect eyeshadow that looks like real glitter. Please help us protect the environment by rejecting conventional glitter in your cosmetics.
