Honey Candles Ltd. has moved away from plastic packaging over the years. We still have some but in a move to eliminate more we have made the recent decision to not wrap our 1 and 1.8 pound beeswax blocks in plastic. We have never wrapped our smaller medallions and now the blocks will join them free of plastic wrapping. I read an article this morning that made me realize this is a very good idea. If all the humans were to disappear tomorrow the evidence of our time would remain for 50 million years and the proof would be plastics still not broken down.
Some stores may be concerned that the blocks will collect dust in the grooves of the patterns on the blocks. This may be true but if the blocks do collect dust it is a simple matter of either the store or the customer who buys it to run warm water over the beeswax. The dust is washed off in seconds.
