Mermaid Dust Glitter started out of a passion to protect the ocean ecosystem. The head mermaid is a former marine scientist and marine educator. A true mermaid through and through. As an educator she taught about the impacts of microplastics in the ocean. She also witnessed students using products such as glitter without realizing the damage it was causing marine life. This lead her to start Mermaid Dust. Now she and her team of mermaids have made it their mission to educate people about the harmful effects of plastic pollution on our ocean ecosystem and convince consumers to choose more eco-friendly products. Mermaids don't want to swim in a plastic ocean, and with Mermaid Dust and other eco friendly brands maybe they won't have to.
