Letters from Lovers (of Queen B candles)

"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.

201003 - OUTthere (Rex inflight mag)201003 - OUTthere (Rex inflight mag) Mar 2010

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.

Destruction of peat forests in Indonesia for palm oil plantationsDestruction of peat forests in Indonesia for palm oil plantations

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
The last time I moved I took an enormous bag full of unused gifts from various pastemployers to Vinnies. Along with the 20 odd t-shirts and 11 caps were 2 (shoddily made) picnic hamper sets, 5 umbrella's, (I kept another 4 – although why I really have no idea as I haven't used any of them in 6 years), about 9 stress balls (what message does THAT send?!!), 4 plastic insulated coffee cups, a vinyl/faux leather notebook cover and desk set, 5 completely useless branded backpacks and about 15 plastic water bottles. [What didn't make it were the various bottles of wine which I had consumed having long since forgotten who they were from and the olive tapenade and stale crackers never eaten!]

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.
