Some of nursery schools in Dorset have banned the use of glitter in their classrooms. They say that it causes “terrible damage” to the environment. When washed down the drain, glitter ends up in the water system and the food chain. It is thought that there are around 46,000 pieces of waste plastic in every square mile of the sea. Glitter is thought to be a tiny part of the problem. They are currently looking for a more environmentally friendly alternative.
Do you think glitter should be banned?
