Made With Bees; Made With Love
Our company fully supports the honeybee in any way that we can. Simply buying our handmade products helps local beekeepers keep their honeybee population up. The honeybee is our saving grace to the human race. Without them, our crop production would be devastated. We are also a member of our local beekeeper’s association and strongly encourage you to become a member of your local chapter too- even if you don’t own any bees, yet. You can find more information on your local honey bees here.
Reducing Carbon Footprints
Buying hemp supports a much larger picture. Hemp as a textile helps the economy as well as the environment. Hemp is one of the strongest and longest-lasting natural textiles. According to the North American Industrial Hemp Council, hemp can yield 3-8 dry tons of fiber per acre, four times what an average forest can yield. It has a very low impact on the environment and can produce more oil for fuel than corn can per acre. Hemp can also grow in a variety of climates and needs much fewer pesticides than cotton or corn if any. This places hemp as a very valuable, low-impact textile. We only use free-trade hemp and are a part of the National Hemp Association. To learn more, check out our Info section.
Buy Local; Help Local
When you buy our hemp wick, you are helping your local economy. We support apiaries and beekeepers local to you and try to keep our product built and maintained in your local economy. Money goes to the store you purchased it from, the employees they have, and the beekeepers near them. That money usually stays in your community and will help fund and grow your community. This means on a greater scale, your community’s businesses will grow, increasing jobs and the overall wealth of the people therein. Each dollar you spend at small businesses returns 3x more money to your local economy than big businesses, and they are more likely to donate to causes and organizations in the community.
Concerned with the carbon footprint of the hemp industry, we apply the farm-to-table philosophy. With as few hands touching the product and as little packaging as possible, we aim to create more sustainability in an already green industry.
