Honeysticks – Originals


Made from excellent non-toxic materials.
Honeysticks use New Zealand-owned and operated suppliers wherever possible, audit all their global raw materials suppliers and ensure fair pay for employees. None of their products are tested on animals. Honeysticks is also in the process of becoming a B-Corp certified company.
Honeysticks only use materials that are able to be reused and are biodegradable or recyclable. Their main ingredient Beeswax is a natural by-product of the honey industry and is sustainably sourced throughout New Zealand. No plastic is used in products or shipping and even their bath crayon labels are made from an innovative crushed rock product developed in New Zealand. All soft plastics and cardboard are recycled and Honeysticks re-use or rehome any materials that they can't avoid being delivered, such as plastic shipment pallets and storage barrels.
Honeysticks are a key sponsor of NZ Bee Aware Month, which educates the public on the importance of bees and the impact they have on our ecosystem. The company also sponsors community events such as free art-making activities for children at the Auckland Art Gallery. Donations are provided to Auckland Down Syndrome Association, Balance Boxes, GOSH and SOS Children’s Village.

What our experts say...

The Honeysticks smell amazing and are in such beautiful colours. I love that they are made in New Zealand too. A beautiful company giving back in beautiful ways. So impressive.

These fantastic crayons are made in New Zealand and smell delightfully of honey, which my children really like. The thick crayons are perfectly sized for little hands to grip and draw with and the colours are well pigmented and create brightly coloured artworks. I’ve found it really easy to clean off the marks these made across our white craft table too, which is a bonus! Highly recommended.

The kids absolutely love drawing with them – they’re obsessed with bees at the moment and I love the smell! It really resonates with me that the brand really thinks hard about even the raw materials used and how it affects their production, kids and the planet.

These cute crayons come in a delightful range of earthy colours and are easy to hold for small hands. I love that they are non-toxic. I really appreciate that this company is B-Corp certified and that the products and packaging are zero waste.
