Tossing confetti into the air at special events like a wedding may seem festive, but it can be an environmental disaster. Glittery or shiny confetti is often a mix of paper and plastic materials, which means it’s non-biodegradable and actual litter. For wild animals, the small flecks can resemble food and can harm them if ingested. If you must toss confetti, consider small leaves, flower petals or dried organic material like herbs or lavender. They are biodegradable and harmless to wild animals.
