The environment is in trouble. Humans are largely to blame. But there are things we can (or not) do to slow global warming and pollution.
One thing that’s been especially detrimental to wildlife and the environment is microplastic. These tiny pieces of plastic are getting into everything, from baby bottles to organs. A viral video on social networks recently encouraged us to do the opposite.
The video was shared by TikTok jadeimogen98 and shows her “getting revenge” on her cheating ex by pouring glitter all over his things. She dumps tubes full of glitter in his shoes and socks drawer.
The video received a lot of praise from people, with many saying they wish they’d thought of it when going through a breakup. While it may seem like an innocent way to get legal revenge, it’s actually incredibly harmful to the environment.
Glitter is a microplastic that’s harming the oceans, soil, and environment. According to National GeographicEvery day, 8 trillion+ microbeads (or more) of plastic enter U.S. lakes and waters. Using glitter to retaliate is irresponsible. If you feel the need for revenge, you can try hole-punching leaves to make a more eco-friendly version or get biodegradable glitter.
