Many of us love a bit of glitter every now and then, and demand definitely increases during the summer months with outdoor festivals and celebrity trends. But as much as these sparkles are fun, they are adding to the issue of plastic in the oceans and land.
Some cosmetic companies use animals as ingredients and/or test the products on the animals in the development stage. Sadly, this causes a great deal of suffering for millions of animals. The good news is that there are more and more companies moving away from animal testing and the use of animals as ingredients. But some vegan products don't mean cruelty-free and some cruelty-free don't mean vegan. Shouldn't they just both mean no animals were involved at any stage? I think so.
