Hey everyone, we hope we're all well?
So, today's posts is going to focus on our wax melt packaging.
When we started this journey we knew we wanted two things, the best quality products we could produce and for these to be as eco-friendly as possible.
We didn't want to go down the single use plastic route which seems to be the 'go to' at the moment for wax melts.
We scoured the web and came across a few ideas for packaging our melts, one of the options was brown paper. We liked the idea of this but it wasn't very practical. We stumbled upon glassine and decided to research and test it.
What is glassine?
Glassine is a smooth and glossy paper that is air, water, and grease resistant.
It is manufactured by supercalendering: after pressing and drying, the paper web is passed through a stack of alternating steel- and fiber-covered rolls called a supercalender at the end of the paper machine such that the paper fibers flatten facing in the same direction. Source
We managed to source glassine bags that were the perfect size to hold 6 wax melts.
Glassine bags are not waxed or chemically finished so they are fully recyclable, compostable and biodegradable.
They don't leach scent from the melts and as they're resealable they keep your products fresher for longer!
If you order 8 bags or under we use letterbox sized cardboard boxes to ship out your melts, which are also fully recyclable.
If you order over 8 bags of melts we will still post these out to you in a cardboard box but this will not be letterbox sized and is sent as a small parcel.
Any packaging materials will also be eco-friendly, for large orders we may use a biodegradable void fill - this is basically packing peanuts that are made from corn and wheat starch, they dissolve in water and can be thrown into the compost pile after a single use.
We NEVER use any products that are tested on animals.
We ensure all of our suppliers carry the vegan approved logo on every product we order, if a product we like the sound of doesn't carry this logo, we don't stock it... simple :)
If you ever have any questions do not hesitate to contact us and we will get back to you asap. Have a great day :)
