Environmental Responsibility

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 & Co. was built with sustainability as the main goal and that's what moves us forward.

Here's what we are doing to help our planet:

Giving it back

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 to help rare bumblebees through active conservation work to safeguard, restore and create habitats for them.

Organic Beeswax

Our beeswax is organic and supplied from 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. Always choose organic beeswax.

Reducing Plastics

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.

Carbon Neutral Shipments

Every parcel we send is carbon neutral, to know more visit Mule for the Planet

Sustainable Packaging

We believe that the less packaging a product has, the less waste there will be and less greenhouse gases it will emit. 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 reduced the amount of printing to the minimum, in order to reduce carbon footprint.

To reduce waste and be kind to the planet we package your Candles using as few boxes as possible. However if you would like your candles packaged individually or in another specific format then please contact us after placing your order.

Locally Sourced

The best way to reduce the carbon footprint is by buying local. Buying local also allows you to support the local economy. Our candles are UK sourced, from beeswax to packaging and we are proud of it. Some shortage of local beeswax may occur between honey harvest seasons or when beekeepers decide to recycle their wax for new hive foundations, in that case we use a mix of locally sourced and European organic beeswax.

Near Zero-Waste

One of the benefits of working with wax is that it can always be re-melted and re-used, we take extra care to avoid any waste of this precious material made by the bees, our moulds can be re-used countless times and our packaging can be 100% recycled. We are happy to collect any remaining beeswax from you, just get in touch!

Small Business

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 for the planet. When you support small businesses by buying their products you minimise the impact of humans on nature.
