- They’re heavy – that means they’re extra useful resource intensive to move (each to and from the Pleased Shed)
- They break simply – that means we’d like extra packaging to ship them safely
- They’ve chunky plastic lids – that means that though we had decreased plastic a bit there was nonetheless room for enchancment
So… After a yr of testing our bigger sized (200g) and pattern sized (20g) Cloud 9 Deep Cleaning Balm and Spoonful of Sugar Exfoliating Scrubs in tins, the time has come to maneuver the “customary” sizes into tins too!
The brand new tins are lighter, far more simply recycled, they usually look fairly schmick too 🙂
