Yesterday we posted the following image/caption on Facebook:
2 Truths and a Lie:
- Orders placed by noon will ship that same day.
- Every Kalamazoo Candle parcel is tied with an adorable buffalo plaid ribbon when it delivers to your doorstep.
- Our packing peanuts are edible.
...Which statement is false? (Find out tomorrow!)
The "lie" in that post is #2.
Yep, the false statement is that each Kalamazoo Candle parcel wears a buffalo plaid ribbon when it shows up on your doorstep.
As awesome as that would be, we think it's wiser to invest our time and energy on more important things. Like ensuring same-day delivery on orders placed before noon, or sourcing sustainable materials whenever possible...
... which brings us to the third item in yesterday's post:
Our packing peanuts.
Not only are we mindful of what goes into our candles, but we make a point to use environmentally-conscious packing/shipping materials as well.
Our packing peanuts, which are made from organic starch, are technically made from edible ingredients (although we do NOT recommend eating them). Our starch-based packing peanuts are biodegradable; they'll decompose in water, leaving zero toxic waste. Awesome!
Oh, and we'll say it one more time:
don't actually eat the packing peanuts.
Although our packing peanuts are made from biodegradable (and technically edible) materials, we do NOT recommend eating them. Might we suggest noshing on something awesome & healthy instead? Fresh fruit or veggies, perhaps?
And speaking of fresh fruit, let's continue our Earth Day celebrations witha shout out to Golden Pineapple! If you haven't tried this fragrance yet, you need to.
A little bit of earthy and a whole lot of sweet, Golden Pineapple is a curiously complex fusion of pineapple, orange, blackcurrant, spruce, cedar, and patchouli, creamy tonka bean and delicate musk. The perfect scent to spark creativity and inspire adventure.
