First and foremost, we hope you are all safe and well. Developments with regard to the coronavirus crisis have been happening on an almost daily basis and we wanted to update you on what we have been doing and how we will proceed from here on.
For health and safety reasons we have paused the “Local Collect” option on our website. We hope this won’t inconvenience you too much, but we see this as the most responsible thing to do under the current circumstances.
In accordance with government advice, our online business is still very much open and we intend it to stay that way for as long as we’re able to get to the post office. Please rest assured that we try to be as hygienic as possible when packaging our candles from disinfecting the jars to packaging up orders. We wear gloves and use recycled cardboard and paper in our packaging which according to recent studies has the potential to hold the virus for much less time than plastic alternatives.
During our “downtime” we’re beavering away and planning on how best to grow and develop the business in a post-corona world. We have lots of good ideas so be sure to keep checking back.
Some of you may already know that we’re running weekly candle giveaways on Instagram from Wednesday to Sunday. We wanted to share the light with as you many of you as we’re able to during these uncertain times. It’ll be something different each week and for more information and a chance to win look out for our posts on Instagram.
Lastly, thank you very much for all your support. Every purchase, like, share and comment on social media means the world to us.
Stay safe everyone and please stay home (and maybe light a candle!)
Jo and James
