Tiffany Norton of Juniperseed Mercantile tried different kinds of packaging for her delicious lip balms until she found the right one. She sent me one to try in its brand new cardboard tube, and I love it.
Here’s what Tiffany has to say:
Now packaged without plastic and made without beeswax!! I am super excited to share my new paper tube lip balms! They are more than three times the size of a typical little plastic tube, so they will last you quite a long time. And since there is no plastic involved in the packaging (even the label is made of recycled paper), you can recycle or compost the tube after use, and feel good about reducing your plastic impact on the earth. This is absolutely, without a doubt, the greenest way to purchase lip balm. We will even ship your package without plastic tape!
I make and sell breakfast burritos sometimes at school. I just make them the way I like them. Turns out, everyone else likes them just like I do. I’m always surprised, but people tell me all the time my breakfast burritos are the best they’ve ever had. Same thing with my lip balm. You might think lip balm is just lip balm. Who really knows the difference between brands? But I have been told over and over again, this lip balm is the best my customers have ever tried. I didn’t really set out to make the world’s best lip balm. I just tweaked my recipe again and again until it came out just the way I like it. Turns our everyone else likes it just that way too!
This vanilla tangerine vegan lip balm is creamy and yummy. Ingredients: coconut oil, hemp seed oil, avocado oil, sunflower oil, candelilla wax, cocoa butter, vitamin E, tangerine essential oil, vanilla, and stevia.
Not only are the lip balms packaged in cardboard tubes, but Tiffany doesn’t use any plastic shipping materials either.
