The European Union (EU) is taking action to reduce microplastic pollution by pulling glitter and plastic particles smaller than 5 mm from shop shelves. This move is part of their reach regulations aimed at reducing microplastics pollution by 30% by 2030.

The ban includes loose glitter and products with added glitter, like makeup and nail polish, as well as small plastic particles called nurdles used in various plastic products. These microplastics can enter the environment, waterways, and oceans, posing health risks to animals and humans.

The EU anticipates a reduction of around half a million tons of microplastics in the ocean. However, biodegradable glitter is still allowed.
