"have ditched the toxins and started burning yours today" from A Whitehead
As I was reading through your website, I found it very informative and ended up throwing out a brand new 'soy wax' candle that was a gift when my baby was born.

Eight years ago, Cate Burton began rolling beeswax candles to relieve the anxiety caused by her high-powered corporate job. Little did she know that her humble hobby would soon generate a hive of beekeeping activity across the country. "That's an incredible cup of tea," I say, sipping a refreshingly strong and bitter builder's tea in Queen B's down-to-earth factory in Brookvale, Sydney.
As said by the Sydney Morning Herald, “Clearing peat forests has made Indonesia the world’s third-largest greenhouse gas emitter, sending more than 3000-million tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere a year. It is driven by greed, with palm oil and timber barons lining the pockets of officials from Kalimantan to Jakarta”.*

A you beaut, Australian made, <$40 (including metro delivery) corporate gift… that won't be put in the drawer from Cate Burton at 9:58pm on 15 October
I know I had cupboards full of what was essentially landfill but I felt too guilty to send it there given the consumption of precious resources taken to make it. Sadly when I got to Vinnies they told me that they would throw the vast majority of it away as they were inundated with it.
