Eco-friendly Christmas Decorations

Part of the excitement of the festive Christmas season is the decorating! Unfortunately, this can also eventuate in some serious greenhouse gas emissions. However, there are eco-friendly alternatives, that will still let you have some (guilt-free) fun this season.

Queen B candles are free of petroleum products and chemicals, unlike most candles which are made from paraffin. Paraffin is a petrochemical, which is also a polluting resource and non-renewable). The wick is also made of pure cotton as opposed to lead core and/or zinc core wicks. The candles are handmade in Sydney, Australia from beeswax, which also makes it slow burning compared to paraffin candles.
