All That Glitter? It’s Not Good, Critics SayPosted on December 4, 2017 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
Some scientists and conservationists are saying plastic glitter is a pollutant, just like the microbeads that lawmakers are already phasing out.
Dr. Mason said that while plastic glitter is popular around the holidays, it’s not necessary. “Yes, there are going to be pains associated with reducing our use of plastic, but we have to think beyond ourselves,” she added. “This isn’t about your New Year’s celebration. It’s about humanity, and our ability to survive as a species.”
