Bee Balm – Sustainable Packaging

Gustaf and Linnea is a Swedish company based in Gotland working towards a future with less plastic. Together with beekeepers in Gotland and around Sweden they produce ecological handmade lip balms made of beeswax. 


Gustaf and Linnea want to contribute to a more sustainable future for wild pollinators which is crucial for our ecosystem. Instead of using the typical plastic packaging for their lip balms they have chosen to use recyclable push up paper tubes to decrease the usage of plastic. The lip balm comes in four different scents and the packaging for each scent has its own unique decorative illustration representing the Swedish Flora. The design is created by Outhouse Gravitz & Kusinerna on Gotland. You can buy the product from Bra Sak.
