WHY Λ M E N IS SUSTAINABLE & ECO FRIENDLY?
The creation process of Λ M E N follows the #ASAP sustainability principles (As.Sustainable.As.Possible) guided by Instituto- E, a non-profit organisation based in Brazil that encourages sustainability, with projects including the development of socially and enviromentally friendly materials since its foundation in the 80’s by sustainability pioneer Oskar Metsavaht.
Λ M E N capsule editions are 100% natural vegan wax with no GMO, and the whole chain of creation and production follows the highest sustainability standards:
- free of paraffin
- 100% natural vegetal wax
- negative carbon footprint packaging made of mushroom and agricultural waste
- compostable packaging
- 200 grs.
- 50 hs. burn time
- eco-friendly reusable Limoge porcelain jar
- 100% recyclable packaging and CERO plastic packaging or in the process
- hand made in Grasse, France
- capsule limited edition 7 fragrances for 7 chakras
- each scent in collab with Yoga Meccas and Gurus to help align our chakras for a balanced body, mind and soul
Additionally, we are innovating with the greenest and cleanest packaging method imaginable on the planet, a CO2 negative Mycelllium solution of mushrooms, sorry but please allow us repeat, CO2 negative packaging for candle. Our packaing is “grown” around a week using local agricultural waste, a little water and mycelium that binds it all together. You can use it as box after or of course as compostable, can be used as fertilizer for our surroundings. Just break the product in pieces and let the composting process go on.
EBEN BAYER, Scientist, Enviromentalist, inventor of Mycelium Fungi technology: "Mycelium is an amazing material, because it's a self-assembling material. It actually takes things we would consider waste and can transform them into almost any shape,” explained at TED Talk 2010.
