Making eco-friendly choices has been one of my core values since day one!
I can't tell you how frustrated I get when I purchase something online and it comes in an over-sized box with tons of plastic bubble wrap...grr! I wanted to make sure that when it came to packaging and shipping materials, I did my best to thoroughly research what's out there and make green choices throughout the entire sourcing process.
Here are some of the neat materials we use to wrap, protect & ship our SCANDISKIN webshop products.
Re-usable bottles, jars & tins: The glass jars and aluminum tins we use for our soy candles can be re-purposed at the end of their life-cycle. I use some of my tins from old candles for storing small knick-knacks in my washroom like bobby pins & hair elastics. I have a few that are used in a drawer, keeping my small clutter organized. The amber glass jars that we use with our 8oz soy candles are ideal for holding q-tips, pencils, etc. I use many of my used amber glass jars to hold various candle-making supplies, clips, rubber bands.. you name it! They also make a cute little tea light holder. Fill the jar half full with sand. Place a tealight into the sand and scatter a few small rocks or preserved moss around the outer edges of the jar to add some interest. It creates the prettiest, rustic little desk accessory - especially on dark, grey days.
