ENVIRONMENTAL scientists have urged that brightness be banned all over the world due to the damage that art provides to the environment.
Gloss, which is commonly used in arts and crafts, is made up of small plastic particles. Scientists argue that the particles penetrate the ocean and the environment where animals eat them.
Professor Richard Thompson did a study and found that one third of the fish caught in the United Kingdom contained plastic particles.
"I was pretty worried when someone bought my girls a bath gel that contained glitter particles," he said The Independent .
"That is going to escape through the hole and potentially enter the environment."
Dr. Trisia Farrelly, a scientist at Mbadey University in New Zealand, said the shine should be banned because it was a microplastic.
Microplastics or small pieces of plastic are known to pollute the oceans, including the Great Lakes, reported the National Ocean Service. .
Microplastics come from many places, but microspheres, a small piece of plastic that was common in beauty products, were the main culprits.
Small particles easily enter water filtration systems where they end up in oceans and lakes.
The BBC reported that some British nurseries have banned the use of glitter in their establishments due to the "terrible damage" that the arts supply to the environment.
Some states of the USA. UU They have banned using microbeads in beauty and health products.
If a ban comes, it will be bad news for people who paid $ 85,000 for the website offering to send envelopes by mail to their enemies full of gloss in the mail.  The entrepreneur Mathew Carpenter, 22, took home the huge payday after putting Shipyourenemiesglitter.com up for sale on the Flippa website.
The site became a viral sensation after its launch two years ago, and Carpenter claims that the care led to more than 2000 orders worth more than $ 20,000 in just a few hours.
"I launched this website as a joke that I did not expect this level of attention," he wrote to explain why he was selling. "Wow, I launched this website while on vacation!"
The website promised "a letter, endless frustration" for the recipient and anonymity for the sender, all for only $ 9.99.
"We really do not like the brightness, the website says It's in our clothes, in our hair, under the sofa and, as you've vacuumed the carpet, there's still brightness. Now you can pbad on this wonderful experience to a person You do not like it.
"It could be your neighbor, your boss or that idiot next door who can not keep the sound of your TV. We will send it in an envelope, along with a note describing how much your life will suck.
"The brightness will be hidden inside the note, guaranteeing the maximum extension when the victim opens to read it".
