Plastic Free by 2019 - Parkminster

Plastic Free by 2019 - Parkminster

When we sit down as a group together at lunch conversation often trends toward stories in the news - and one of those stories has really developed over the past few months.

The over use and a lack of recycling of plastics is impacting environments all over the world and without every consumer, business or corporation taking the situation seriously the potential for permanent damage to our planet is inevitable. So we've decided to do whatever we can to minimize & mitigate the effect that Parkminster is having on this problem.

Parkminster Products is making a commitment to be Plastic Free by the start of 2019. That means we will:

  • Only use Recycled Paper products in all our packaging
  • Use Glass or Metal Containers rather than plastic for all our products
  • Use Metal or Glass pouring jugs and containers in the workshop
  • Work with our suppliers to minimise the amount of plastic they use in their deliveries to Parkminster
  • Promote Re-Use of our Glass / Metal / Ceramic containers amoungst our customers
  • Recycle any plastics we do receive by working with approved environmental recycling services
  • Organise rubbish picking days where our team help take discarded plastic and other waste out of our local environment.

Everyone at Parkminster wants to live in a clean and safe world and we will do everything we can to minimize the effects that our business has on the environment.

If you have any ideas how we can develop our plans to make this a reality then please feel free to get in touch.

Fabulous Photoshoot for All About Horsham Magazine - January Issue

Just before Christmas we had a morning of interviews and photo's for a small article in All About Horsham magazine. Attempting to be super-confident and trying to ignore lenses looking at you is never easy as we're all way too normal to take it seriously. But the results that we have seen so far are amazing and we wanted to thank AAH magazine and Toby Philips Photography for making us look way more classy than we really felt on that cold and wet December day!

Kiln Collection - Parkminster's beautful scents in hand thrown pottery

Today sees the launch of the Parkminster Kiln Collection

Our Kiln Collection has been designed by Parkminster Products in collaboration with a very talented local potter. Our ceramic pots and bowls are thrown and shaped by hand so each has it's own patina and unique feel.

The lovely ceramic vessels have any number of uses so once you have enjoyed your candle we recommend that you repurpose your jar for small drinks or for snacks and nibbles with friends. They make great small plant pots too!

Our Kiln Collection candles come in all 18 beautiful Parkminster Products fragrances and are hand blended and poured in small batches in our workshop. Parkminster candles are poured to order so we can guarantee that the oils and wax are fresh for your enjoyment.
