Popular fun runs use Bioglitter!

Bioglitter News, Events

Glitter, glitter and guess what, even more glitter! That’s right, our vast range of Bioglitter colours took over the glitter runs in aid of St Margaret’s Hospice.

Taking place over two dates at Wincanton and Taunton racecourses, just short of 2,000 people took to the courses and raised money for the hospice.

People of all ages conquered the course which saw them go through FOUR unique glitter stations. Our Bioglitter certainly made an impact as shown by the fantastic pictures and in total, more than (insert figure) was raised.

It’s also great to see that organisers from the run used our Bioglitter instead of normal plastic glitter. Glitter can still be enjoyed, particularly for fun runs, we just like to make sure it’s Bioglitter being used.

Our very own Stephen Cotton, said: “Two amazing runs have taken place raising a vast amount of money for what is a superb charity.

“The fun runs are for an excellent cause and I’m delighted Bioglitter could play a part in being involved. Our glitter is currently 92 per cent plastic free and 90 per cent biodegradable in the natural environment and it’s the most eco-friendly on the market.

“Just by looking at the pictures, the glitter looks superb and has a real shimmer to it. I believe the two runs were extremely well received and families of all ages had two enjoyable days.”

Of course we know that Bioglitter has fantastic eco credentials but we do urge people to still clean up as much as they can once the event is finished!

However, we know that always isn’t the case and that’s why it’s great that Bioglitter is the only glitter of its kind to biodegrade in the natural environment and that is why the glitter run organisers chose to use us!

“The environmental impact was a big consideration when planning our Glitter Run events. Therefore the glitter we are using is non-toxic and biodegradable. We are also reducing the plastic waste at our events by having water stations rather than giving out plastic water bottles, “said Sonia Bateman, Events Fundraiser at St. Margaret’s Hospice.

“The pictures speak for themselves, everyone had a fabulous glittery time and we are so pleased we have been able to put on an event, raising money to help care for people all over Somerset while also keeping the beautiful Somerset countryside safe.”

Remember folks, the Bioglitter journey is only just getting started, currently at 92 per cent plastic free, we’re hoping in the near future to have a 100 per cent plastic free glitter!
