ECO & EARTH FRIENDLY
Here at Faery Lights we take our eco responsibilities very seriously and have adapted the business to be as eco friendly as possible , whilst still delivering high quality scented products.
Unfortunately we have not managed to become plastic free as of yet, despite testing alternative methods of packaging such as wax wraps and glassine bags. We discovered that the scent of the product after a 2 month storage time had significantly reduced and the self adhesive seals were not resealing after the first opening.
Below is a list of our packaging and how to recycle/dispose:
Cello Bags: recycle with your kerb side recycling scheme.
Mylar Bags: recycle with your carrier bags and frozen veg bags at your nearest supermarket recycling point.
Clamshells: Our clams are made from 88% recycled plastic and are 100% recyclable with your kerb side recycling scheme.
Pie Tubs/Sample Boxes: Made with PP5 plastic. Either reuse (not for food) but are ideal once washed for storing craft bits such as beads etc or put in your kerbside recycling.
Tissue Paper : Made from recycled paper.
Packing Boxes: Made from recycled cardboard. Either return to HQ if you are local or put in your kerbside recycling.
Bubble wrap/Air Sacks/Additional parcel packaging: We save all of our packaging from wholesale orders and collect packaging materials from our local community and will reuse this is packaging for your order. Our packing peanuts are made from corn starch and will very quickly disintergrate once they become wet. We will if we have ran out of packaging materials buy new as to protect your products but in over 5 years of trading we have only purchased to date 3 new rolls of bubblewrap. We dont use tape on your bubblewrap so it is able to go out in your kerbside recycling.
All of our fragrance oils are Vegan friendly and not tested on animals.
We tend to favour suppliers that send their oils in metal or glass bottles so that the chances of recycling are greater, however not all of our suppliers give us the option of metal or glass bottles and instead opt for a plastic option. In these cases we tend to buy these oils in larger quantities so we have less single use plastic entering our recycling.
Here at Faery Lights we use a paraffin wax which is a by-product of the petroleum industry, that if not used would end up in landfill. Paraffin wax was is non toxic but unfortanately it is unbiodegradable unlike most Soy waxes, however it is not recommended to leave scented soy waxes open to the elements as although the wax is biodegradable most fragrance oils can be toxic to aquatic animals. Instead we recommend turning your spent wax into emergency candles, using an old candle jar (or other fire safe vessel) and a wooden wick. Lots of our customers already do this and have produced some wonderful looking creations.
We chose to make our products from paraffin instead of Soy to help combat the intensive agricultural methods used in producing Soy. Soy is the leading arriable crop resposible for the worlds deforestation problems. Not only are large swathes of forest being cleared to make farmland to grow these crops but millions of animals are being displaced in the process. Soy crops are also heavily doused with insecticides and pesticides to produce a heavy and abundant crop and in the process drastically contaminating the surrounding areas and soil quality.
GENERAL WASTE - LANDFILL
Faery Lights is a family run business operating out of a workshop at our redisential address. The ONLY waste from the business is the film backing from the self seal strips on the cello bags and the recycled kitchen paper used to clean out our measuring jugs after each make. The total amount of lanfill waste for the whole of the property (business and family use) is less than 1 kitchen bin full a week.
Other items that require specialised recycling such as printer ink cartridges and batteries from scales/thermometers are always saved and recycled at the appropriate recycling points.
All of our suppliers are UK based, not only to reduce our carbon footprint but to help support our economy. No product or ingredient is directly purchased by ourselves from overseas.
As a business we directly sponser the planting of 22 trees per month, this is enough to offset the carbon emissions of 1 long haul flight or 2903 miles travelled in a car. We are workig towards the possibility of 1 tree planted for every order we recieve.
