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 between bees and humans and how important is to live at one with nature - use the precious resources that the bees provide consciously to help them, and aim for the "beetter" future.
We encourage you to use Bee Loop Honey Pot responsibly - you can reuse it at home for storing your own honey, nuts, and other goods, let it biodegrade naturally with the organic waste, or even "beetter" - give it back to the bees to continue the circle of honey-making.
How does it work?
You can give the Bee Loop Honey Pot to any small local beekeeper anywhere in the world or bring/send the pot back to us to:
Bee Loop, UAB
Krivių str. 12
After receiving the pot, it will be recycled and reused 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 the Bee Loop Honey Pot by melting it, filtering 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 hexagonal comb cells which are used for storing honey or egg laying. And so the Bee Loop begins!
Why does it matter?
Bees play a key role as pollinators in our food safety and biodiversity conservation. By giving back the beeswax to the bees, we make sure that they get the best quality supplies and 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 but in many areas worldwide pure beeswax is a luxury. Pesticides from agriculture residues in beeswax and to make the costs of beeswax smaller, big beeswax suppliers mix it with petroleum-based paraffin and other toxic additives that cause the death of the bee brood (larvae/embryos).
Lithuania, where Bee Loop Honey Pot is produced, uses far fewer pesticides than many other countries (source) and each year organic farming becomes more popular in Lithuania because a market is formed for their production. The beeswax used for Bee Loop Honey Pot is collected from small local Lithuanian beekeepers to be able to control the quality of beeswax - after receiving the beeswax, we check its quality by filtering it and removing any impurities.
Each container has a mark of our logo which is a sign of the quality.
