Environmental Scientists Call for Worldwide Glitter Ban to Save Earth
Breitbart ^ | 11/30/2017 | Katherine Rodriguez

Posted on 12/01/2017 8:12:02 AM PST by bar sin穒s穞er

Environmental scientists are urging lawmakers around the world to ban glitter from being used in art supplies because of the damage glitter particles do to the environment. Scientists are particularly concerned that the plastic particles that make up glitter would pollute the environment and poison the animals who eat from it, CBS Philadelphia reported.

Dr. Trisia Farrelly, an environmental anthropologist at Massey University in New Zealand, says she wants to see glitter banned because of the damage it does to the ecosystem.

“I think all glitter should be banned because it’s microplastic,” she said.

The stuff is an abomination in the house. Once it shows up you can never get rid of it.

I despise the stuff. Surgeons find it in the intestinal areas of kids and adults. It’s hard to vacuum and sticks to clothing.

I owned a contract janitorial service for many years. It’s very hard to get rid of, especially while trying to apply floor finish. You think you got it all, then you find more.

“Scientists are particularly concerned that the plastic particles that make up glitter would pollute the environment and poison the animals who eat from it,”

They’re particularly concerned this could cause mass pollution of a substance they have scientifically termed “unicorn poop”.

It is impossible to purge a building of the junk, isn’t it? Like you say, you think you got it all and it continues to show up.

Getting it into a floor finish...that must be awful as it is no longer on the surface.

Hadn’t heard about it getting into the intestines, but that isn’t surprising.

I roll mine up and smoke them.

Sometimes for a real tasty treat I’ll fill out a schadenfreude condolence card to some liberal, then smoke it. It’s like Scott Tenorman’s tears.

LOL stripper dust...

Yeah, try cleaning all that stuff off of you before you get home to the wife. She always finds it in the most inconvenient places.
