Did you know that most store-bought glitter was made from plastic? Sure, it looks all metallic and shiny, but really a shaker of glitter is just a bottle full of teeny tiny pieces of plastic. Bummer, right?
Don’t worry, my shiny crafty friends! It’s not too difficult to make your own glitter – in custom colors! – with just a few kitchen ingredients.

Last week, I attended a great webinar hosted by Green Business Owner on plastic bag reduction strategies for businesses and communities. Scott Cooney hosted the webinar along with Priti Ambani, Managing Editor at Ecopreneurist and Sustainability Consultant at GreenDen Consultancy, and Suzette Bergeron of Bulletin Bag.
The strategies they’re talking about aren’t how to get folks to use fewer bags but how to get individuals, businesses, and local officials on board with an all-out single use plastic bag ban, and I have to say it was a really inspiring talk.
