Soy Wax Candle Packaging
At Lakes & Hills we are always looking at ways to make our packaging not only stylish but also environmentally friendly. Our vessels are made mainly with tin and glass. Both of which can be re-cycled or re-used. Our customers have used the tins afterwards to put items in, like drawing pins, paperclips and buttons. Our larger metal and glass vessels are useful for placing tea lights in, and even plants like succulents and cactus. Reusing also means that you get even better value for money, by having a vessel that is either useful or decorative.
In 2018 we changed our suppliers of our boxes too. We now use a company who uses FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) approved recycled boxboard, and paper coverings from FSC. Our gorgeous tissue paper is also made from soy ink print on acid free paper, which is FSC certified, and it can be recycled.
We try to limit our use of plastic. Most of the bubble wrap and paper/cardboard used to protect your goods in transit, comes from packaging we have received with our product orders. Once you have popped the bubbles (yes we know its hard to resist popping it) please make sure you dispose of, or re-use the plastic/cardboard responsibly.
