It’s simple to make and can cost almost nothing. All that’s needed are leaves and hole punches, and Mother Nature will take care of the outside clean up for you. Truly biodegradable! 🌏

Plus, it's a great kids' activity. Plastic and paper confetti isn’t environmentally friendly and typically not biodegradable. Confetti rice can be dangerous to birds and other animals. According to Dr. Victoria Miller, a materials science and engineering professor at North Carolina State University, as reported in The New York Times, the "plastic film from which most glitter is made takes about 1,000 years to completely biodegrade on Earth."
