RETURN WAX

Bee Loop Honey Pot is not just an innovative, zero-waste honey packaging or a unique sustainable gift. It's a message about a friendship and a loop between bees and humans and how important is to use the precious resources that the bees provide consciously in order to help them, and aim for the (bee)tter future.  

If Bee Loop Honey Pot is not needed at home after enjoying the honey, instead of throwing it away, the beeswax of the pot can be returned to continue the circle of honey-making. 

How does it work?

The customer can give the Bee Loop Honey Pot to any small local beekeeper anywhere in the world or send the pot back to us to:

Bee Loop, UAB

Krivių 12

01209 Vilnius

Lithuania

After receiving the pot, it will be recycled and reused for at least one hundred times: the beekeeper will give it back to the bees or we will reuse it for making new pots.

How it goes back to the bees?

 

The beekeeper recycles the beeswax of Bee Loop Honey Pot by melting it and removing any impurities. After this, the beekeeper uses the beeswax as a flat foundation in the hive frame. Bees are turning the provided beeswax into the hexagonal comb cells which are used for storing honey or egg laying. And so the Bee Loop begins!

Why does it matter?

By giving back the beeswax to the bees, we contribute to their well-being.

Beekeepers provide beeswax sheets to the bees so they have to put less energy into producing wax, which allows them to produce more honey. Bees require pure organic beeswax to reproduce and continue the honey-making process. Sometimes imported beeswax can be fake - contain petroleum based paraffin and other toxic additives that cause the death of the bee brood (larvae / embryos). The beeswax used for Bee Loop Honey Pot is 100% pure and collected from local Lithuanian beekeepers so by giving this wax back to the bees, we make sure that they get the best quality supplies.
