The holidays are soon upon us. After a very challenging 2020, to say the least, all of us here at the BeeBAGZ™ hive are looking forward to a little downtime with our loved ones.
Now until December 20th, we are offering Free Product with any purchases over $35 (while quantities last!) We decided in our efforts to be the zero waste company we strive to be, that our waste from production can be turned into usable products. You can choose between our new Fire Starterz, Wrapz or Mabels Labels, to be added free to any online order. Fire starters are made from the remnants of our BeeBAGZ™ production. They are water proof (that's right, they still work when wet) and make fire starting easy. Wrapz are cut from our bags that didn’t make it past our inspection team. Two sized wraps are included, Medium and Small. We have partnered with Mabel's Labels to provide a sticker that will stay on our BAGZ. Write your child's name on the label or what's side to keep your fridge organized.
Pick one item, place in your cart for free on purchases over $35.
Its that time of year again when we search for that perfect gift, I would like to share some of my favourite eco products that I use in my household. Simple swaps that make a big impact.
The Razor Reinvented.
Back in the early ’90s, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reported that America produced 2 billion disposable razors and blades. According to a more recent report by Statista, 163 million consumers in the U.S. used disposable razors in 2018.
Razors are usually made of several different materials, which make them a challenge to recycle properly, so we can assume that the majority of those 163 million disposable razors end up in the garbage.
As one person, you might not feel like you can make a big impact by ditching your disposable razors. However, there’s something to be said for one of our founding principles at BeeBAGZ™ and that is that every change, no matter how small, can have a big impact when adopted by many.(Margarett Mead)
I discovered leaf razor last month and it was LOVE at first shave. I bought the leaf razor and get an amazing shave with its pivoting head. Not one bit of plastic, they use metal boxes to recycle your blades. This razor offers the best shave I have ever had.
Skip the plastic water bottle.
65 million empty plastic water bottles per year end up as garbage in a landfill waste site.” In some communities the percentage of water bottles that end up in landfills can be as high as 80 per cent. 4. Bottled water is definitely not safer.
Yikes, with numbers like those, choosing a reusable water bottle can make a pretty big dent in plastic pollution. My personal favourite is the brand Klean Kanteen. It can make such a big difference. They offer many choices of colours and tops and I love how long they keep my water cold or tea hot.
We all know the cycle, as soon as the holiday shopping ends, the Boxing Day sales begin. It can be hard to resist the savings. But let's get real for a second, spending an entire day battling crowds in a congested mall isn't exactly quality time. Do something with your family or friends that you'll actually enjoy and remember! Grab the toboggan, the snowshoes or skis and spend some of your time off appreciating nature! This year more than any, it's important to get outside and breathe in the fresh air.
And please stay tuned for more news from the hive! We have some exciting developments in the works! Watch our social media for news and updates from our team.
We wish you all the very best of the season.
With glad tidings,
Kristi and The Hive
