Finlay Bee was created from a desire to offer products which gave consumers options and choices. We wanted to help you make decisions which were kinder to the world around you. Hence our first product was Beeswax Food Wraps. These are excellent ways in which you can reduce your reliance on single use plastics and still keep your food lovely and fresh. It’s a far nicer way of keeping food fresh and helps you to work towards zero waste. We decided to offer them in 4 different sizes too to enable you to purchase exactly what you wanted rather than have to stick to a single choice of a mixed pack.
At the very heart of Finlay Bee is the sense of responsibility to the world around us, and to use our fantastic little friends Bees to help us with that. All too often as humans we think that we know what’s best and that we can beat the natural world. Well maybe the damage we’re doing to it is testament to the latter, however increasingly there’s a sense that the former certainly isn’t always true. We can and must learn from nature and at Finlay Bee we want to learn as much as we can.
So it’s only natural that we would want to move Finlay Bee forwards and develop a Beeswax Candle. There are a few waxes which can be used in candles as I have previously blogged about. The main eco-friendly wax used is Soy wax, and Soy is brilliant for so many reasons. But Beeswax is different – it’s much more costly, but it produces a beautiful candle which we love.
So what will come after candles? We don’t really know. The climate that we’re, and the global nature of our business means that we need to offer products which are enjoyed by many people. So we’d love to hear your thoughts about what you would like us to create. Please let us know by commenting in the box below or emailing us – firstname.lastname@example.org
