Petition Ban the use of glitter and save our marine life!

Tops Day Nurseries have made a pledge to become more sustainable and have recently discovered an unexpected item that has already had a detrimental effect on the environment… Glitter.

Although much loved as an art and craft favourite, glitter is a microplastic, just like microbeads.

More details

We already know that 100% of mussels found off France and Belgium have ingested microplastics and many fish have too; so if you eat shell fish you more than likely have eaten microplastics too, along with the toxic additives that manufacturers use which are known to copy oestrogen, and affect human fertility.

As responsible people looking after the next generation, the last thing we want to do is damaging the environment or risking their health, so we need to act now and stop this pollution.
