The Takeaways

  • Most glitters are made from plastic, meaning those tiny little particles are contributing to the overwhelming plastic pollution we’re experiencing as a planet
  • GLITTEREVOLUTION creates biodegradable glitter blends that are cosmetic grade, plant-based, AND are shipped to you in plastic-free packaging.
  • Their glitters are marine and waste water biodegradable, certified home compostable, vegan-friendly and cruelty free.

Oh, the joy of glitter! The inner child in me finds her way to the surface whenever I paint myself with this magical, sparkly, shimmery accessory. A playful, pastel energy bubbles up and overflows around me into the world when I’m decorated with glitter. It’s hard to not smile when your physical body reflects how you feel on the inside.

But recently, glitter has become a hot topic of discussion because of its negative environmental impact. Most glitter is made of plastic, meaning it doesn’t break down after it gets washed down the drain. Glitter particles find their way into our water system, and contribute to the growing plastic pollution issue we’re facing.

Are you one of the thousands of people (like me!) who love using glitter, but want to stay aligned with your environmentally-conscious values? Great news – you absolutely can, thanks to GLITTEREVOLUTION, a biodegradable glitter company. Wendy May initially created GLITTEREVOLUTION as a way to continue to use glitter and  stay connected with her inner child, without the guilt of negatively impacting our planet. What started as a small business,operated out of her backpack for her close circle of friends, has now blossomed into a tremendous, momentum-gaining company, with no end in sight.

The spectrum of colors to choose from is almost overwhelming, in the most delightful way possible. Choosing between them feels like being a kid in a candy shop. She offers various color combinations and sizes with unique names like Cosmic, Neptune, Venus, Dragonfly, Atlantis, Galaxy, Unicorn, and Mermaid, to name but a few.

Wendy lives a nomadic lifestyle and has her hands full with numerous activities and businesses. In addition to running GLITTEREVOLUTION, Wendy also owns and runs a women’s Life Reboot retreat in Spain, which focuses on creating community, mutual support, and accessing a deeper connection with the self, letting go of societal expectations and who we believe we’re supposed to be, opposed to who we truly are.

If you’d like to learn more about GLITTEREVOLUTION or her Life Reboot Retreat, listen to our podcast on our website or on iTunes. Take some time to explore her websites, and be sure to follow her on Instagram and Facebook. Wendy, I had a lovely time speaking with you, and I’m so happy you could be on the show to tell the world about the extraordinary work you’re doing.

Let us know what you think of this week’s podcast, as we always love hearing from you, Ecofeminists!
