CANDLES WITH A PURPOSE
Climate change is one of the most pressing concerns the world faces and we must reduce our carbon footprint to help the environment before it's too late. BZZWAX was built with sustainability as the main goal and that's what moves us forward.
1% of our gross sales is donated to Bumblebee Conservation Trust, an organisation in the UK that makes efforts to monitor and conserve bumblebees and their habitat, raising public awareness of the threats bumblebees face and help rare bumblebees through active conservation work to safeguard, restore and create habitats for them.
Most of our beeswax is supplied by beekeepers, this way we make sure our candles are free from paraffin and other toxic additives commonly used on imported beeswax (mainly from china). If you have purchased a "pure" beeswax candle there's a high chance that it's made from adulterated beeswax.
We are trying to reduce the amount of plastic that we use to the minimum amount necessary according to the situation. We will always try to recycle as much as possible, and when we cannot, we will return it to our suppliers.
Our packaging is 100% recyclable and supplied by one of the first packaging organisations to be accredited with ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental management systems).
We also keep our amount of printing to the minimum, to reduce our carbon footprint.
The best way to reduce the carbon footprint is by buying local. Buying local also allows you to support the local economy. We're proud to say our candles are UK-sourced - from beeswax to packaging.
One of the benefits of working with wax is that it can always be remelted and reused. We take extra care to avoid any waste of this precious material made by bees. Our moulds can be re-used countless times and our packaging is 100% recyclable. We are happy to collect any remaining beeswax from you, just get in touch!
We are a small family business and we believe the future of trading lives on this model. It's been proved that big corporations and their aggressive profit-at-any-cost mentality is harmful to the planet.
When you support small businesses by buying their products, you minimise the impact of humans on nature.
