      Working closely with a UK based packaging company, Milkman design and grow each of the custom biodegradable mycelium boxes.

      Mycelium is a root-like structure that forms the vegetative tissue of mushrooms. It grows exponentially with the correct nutrition and environmental conditions.

      Their packaging partner works with local farms; taking the waste products from hemp, corn and timber production and putting it to use by growing unique, custom-designed, environmentally friendly packaging. Milkman use a custom mold to ensure the candles are held in the packaging securely.

      The boxes are certified biobased as well as being:

      ● Home compostable
      ● Non-toxic against US, EU, JAP, AUS & CAN standards

      At the end of the box’s use, the packaging can be broken down to biodegrade at home. When broken up into small pieces by hand, and thrown into loose soil/vegetation, it will decompose in around 45 days, keeping all its carbon safely locked away and also adding nitrates to the earth.

      candle Use:

      Burn for at least 2-3 hours on first use.

      Afterwards, burn no more than 4 hours at a time.

      Trim wick to ¼" (0.6 cm) prior to each lighting.
