Plastic free month

#choosetorefuse

July is plastic free month and here at Willow & Thyme we fully support this and support the hashtag #choosetorefuse.

As you may know all our products are handmade by us and all our products are plastic free, vegan, cruelty free and responsibly sourced.

All our packaging is also plastic free, and our wax melts are packaged in glassine packets that are completely recyclable, compostable and biodegradable.

Our Candles, diffusers, room sprays, hand and body wash and hand and body lotion are packaged in recyclable glass jars, and our packaging for our online orders are all packed with recyclable peanuts and boxes.

5 important facts about plastic pollution:

. Only 9% of all plastic produced is recycled

. A whooping 2 million plastic bags are used every minute worldwide

. Single use plastics are illegal is some parts of the world

. Every minute of every day a truckload of plastic is dumped in the ocean

. 73% of beach litter worldwide is plastic

This plastic debris affects all kinds of ocean life, from sea turtles to ocean birds to sharks to fish and everything in-between. Animals get tangled up or stuck in discarded nets or bottles, choke on plastic debris, fill their stomachs with plastic they mistake for food and much, much more.

By supporting us you are supporting a business that is choosing to refuse to use plastic and support a plastic free future for the planet.
