Our bamboo and tree pulp are extracted from forests that are certified as environmentally sustainable, socially beneficial and economically viable
Traditional glitter is made from tiny pieces of PET plastic, making it a form of microplastic that remains in the stomachs of our land and marine life for their entire lives, once ingested. These plastic particles then make their way up the food-chain and are even consumed by us!
According to the Earth Day Network, approximately 1 million tonnes of tiny plastic fibres are released into wastewater every year. Now, that isn't such a glitzy look for glitter.
Even more shocking than this, humans are consuming roughly 5 grams of plastic per week. That's equivalent to a credit card, which we want in our wallet, not in our stomachs! For more information on the ugly truth about the beauty industry and how an Australian beauty trend is changing it for good, feel free to check out our free eBook on the 3 Simple Standards for Sustainability.
Fortunately, the Diamond Dust Glitter Vault features 6 glitters that are plant-based and biodegradable. The Diamond Dust Glitter Vault box is made in Australia from paper that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, meaning that it is made from at least 90% recycled paper and is 100% responsibly sourced.
The bamboo used to make the biodegradable handles of our makeup brushes has also been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as responsibly sourced from forests that are sustainably managed from an environmental, social and economical perspective.
Why is this important to us?
According to the World Wildlife Fund, illegal and unsustainable forestry accounts for 40-50% of all logging in some of the most vital and threatened forests in the world. So, we want to make sure that our beauty products, as well as the packaging they come in, aren't contributing to this big problem.
Our biodegradable glitters are sent by carbon-neutral shipping and arrive on your doorstep in a recyclable cardboard postage box that is filled with shredded paper, wrapped up in sustainable tissue paper and sealed with love with our custom water-activated kraft tape, meaning that it is made from paper and completely recyclable!
Now that's what you call making sustainability sexy.
Our products can be refilled so that you can use them over and over! For more information on Our Refill Program, check out our blog: Our Refill Program.
