Bees at Work

Giving back

We have teamed up with a number of small businesses to reduce our impact on the environment and to promote biodiversity and wildlife.

We have pledged to plant 1 tree and fund their programs for every candle we sell. Click on their logo to visit their website and see the amazing work they are doing. 

JUST ONE Tree is a non-profit initiative removing CO2 from the atmosphere and reversing biodiversity loss through global reforestation. They plant trees in areas severely affected by deforestation to maximise the effect on reducing global warming. In the process they help to provide agricultural education and sustainable incomes to local communities.

But they don’t stop there. JUST ONE Tree concentrates on restoring the entire ecosystem by planting on land and in the oceans, and they also focus on helping to shape the next generation of planet-conscious thinkers by bringing environmental education into the classrooms with lesson plans and JUST ONE Tree Day.

We have teamed up with Seedball to include a FREE bee mix ball with every purchase. Seedball is a multiple award-winning gardening product that appeals to gift-givers, non-expert gardeners, and to people who are keen to support their back-garden wildlife. 

The seedballs are a mix of native wildflowers that bees will just love. Carefully selected to attract solitary bees, honey bees and bumblebees. Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mix of Birdsfoot Trefoil, Foxglove, Red Clover, Viper’s Bugloss and Wild Marjoram – all recommended as bee-friendly plants by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. They have also added a sprinkling of pollinator-friendly annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold, and Night-flowering catchfly. 

 

Seed balls are incredibly easy to use – simply scatter on top of soil or compost (no digging or expertise required!) and nature will do the rest. Click on their logo to visit their website and find out more.

Our packing is custom made by Tiny Box Company in Sussex. We only use recycled and recyclable packing including our handmade bows and tape. Their core values of ethical and sustainable living and recycling everything they can, including both staff and business waste are things we couldn't agree more with.

Tiny Box Company believe that luxury and beauty need not be compromised when making ethical packaging choices. Based on this principle, they have carefully hand picked their entire range, which includes recycled jewellery boxes, recycled bags, gift packaging, rigid boxes, acid-free tissue paper, ribbon and more.
