WHY IS BOUJEE BIRDY GLITTER SENT IN NON FANCY PANCY PACKAGING?
I wanted everything about the brand to be recyclable. What do we do as soon as we open up all the packaging? We either recycle or throw it away. Having it wrapped in recycled paper is less cost all round. We are helping the environment and keeping the cost down of the glitter. If I did have fancy packaging, it then means more expensive glitter.

IS EVERYTHING ABOUT BOUJEE BIRDY BIODEGRADABLE/RECYCLABLE?
99% Is either recyclable or biodegradable. The only thing that isn't, is the plastic inside the aluminium lid. That stops the product from leaking out.
EXTRA INFORMATION ABOUT THE JARS
The reason for the size of the jars, is all down to myself being a nail tech and makeup artist. A lot of glitter jars out there are either too small or have a very small neck/lids. You then have to pour out the glitter, which can cause a lot of mess and waste. This is not very cost efficient, I was very specific in what I wanted. A big lid/neck opening is perfect for holding a nail over the jar and sprinkling over the glitter. That way, the excess is then captured back into the jar, which means no waste. Not only that, I wanted the glass jar to have no labels on the bottom. If your like me and have a ton of jars in drawers, you never know what you have. This means going through all of them to find the 1 pot you need. However, this is designed for you to put in the drawer, upside down and easy peasy....you find the colour you want!
