Sustainability plays a vital role in our lives, whether we acknowledge it or not. The food we choose to buy, the products we invest in, or the services we use all positively or negatively affect sustainable practices.
As a consumer, buying sustainable products is a conscious decision, but it isn't always an informed one. Some businesses aren't at the forefront with their sustainable practices - or their lack of them - so consumers may have to do their own research to understand what companies are doing to support sustainability.
We value our customers' decisions and value our wholesale client's customers' decisions each time they make a purchase. So, we've outlined the different things we do to support sustainability. Whether you're buying supplies to make your own candles or leveraging our white label products for your customers, you can be sure that we're doing what we can to support our future.
1) Product Longevity
Our products are created with longevity in mind!
With this, we ensure that anyone who purchases our products gets a great scent that lasts for a long time. Our scented candles burn for 50 hours on average, while our reed diffusers can last a minimum of 4-5 months.
If you're leveraging our white label products, make sure that your audience knows they're getting a high-quality product without the need to re-purchase a non-sustainable product each week.
2) Minimising Plastic Use
We use plastics daily, and saying no can often be unavoidable. However, we quickly decided to say no to plastics where possible. Instead, we use recyclable glassware for our candles, diffusers and room sprays. Similarly, we use recyclable packaging for all products, so our customers can recycle their packaging once their new orders arrive!
As a business, this is undoubtedly a win-win. If you're selling our white label products, be sure to mention how recyclable friendly they are.
3) Ethically Sourced
We have spent a considerable amount of time sourcing only the best supplies and materials. The origins of these supplies must be ethically sourced and sustainable for us to add them to our list, especially when considering new ranges.
We have worked with many brands that feel the same, which has led to some amazing opportunities for our customers. Due to this focus, we've been able to offer:
- Fragrance oils created from renewable and sustainable crops & plant-based raw materials
- Completely recyclable glassware
- Unbleached cotton wicks, which are GMO-free
And many more to come.
Looking Towards the Future
We always have our future in mind when deciding on the direction of Whax. We value our customers and our wholesale clients. While we continue to push out our products to the market for our customers, we want to make sure that our wholesale clients get the same treatment.
Our inbox is always open to questions & queries, and we're always on standby to help our wholesale clients. If you're struggling with something, drop us a message, and we'll get back to you soon.
