Why do you have plastic post as an option to purchase my glitter in?


We are working hard to become a completely plastic free small business, this takes a lot of trial and error with a lot to factor in and we try and keep the postage prices as low as possible for you. We have made sure that we offer a range of glitter pots of different sizes, including our fully biodegradable refill bags with biodegradable stickers.
If you do purchase a small plastic pot, please do refill it or pop it in the recycling bin when you're finished.
