June was pride month and to celebrate this ‘Cards Against Humanity’ brought out a special edition ‘Pride Pack,’ with the option of glitter added. Unfortunately when Kait Johnson went to order her glitter bomb pride pack, it was unavailable. Cards Against Humanity had run out of glitter.
“I play cards against humanity all the time I love it so much,” Kait told Bored Panda. “My friends and I all have sick senses of humor so it’s always a fun time!”
They really wanted that glitter, so what to do? Email the company and get it, obviously. So that’s just what Kait did, and to their credit, Cards Against Humanity responded, being the kickass customer service company that they’ve become known for. However, the response still left Kait lacking in sparkle. So she upped the stakes. How would they respond this time? “I honestly didn’t expect a response, let alone a box of glitter,” she told us. And what is she going to do with all that glitter now? “I’m actually trying to look for a school that might need extra glitter for their art class.”
Not to burst your bubble but glitter has come under scrutiny lately for its environmental impact, it is a microplastic that can eventually find its way into oceans and the creatures that live there. Most glitter is made of aluminium and a plastic called PET, which can disrupt hormones in the bodies of animals and humans when broken down. Some are even calling for it to be banned completely, although some more environmentally friendly alternatives do exist. So if you do choose to use glitter, use it responsibly!
