If like me you love having your candles around then it’s important to know that the company you are buying from are creating them in an eco-friendly way. The biggest problem is that there are quite a number of companies that now say they sell the eco-friendly way so it’s deciding which ones to try our first.
Well, I have done a bit of homework for you and the following three I think are worth every penny and definitely sell the eco-friendly way I wanted.
1.The Mewstone Candle Company who are down south near the South Devon coast. They only use cotton wicks, 100% natural soy wax and vegan-friendly paraben-free fragrances. This particular one in a tin smells of rosemary, lavender and bergamot and will burn for around 50 hours.
They say each item from their Mewstone range is mixed, poured, packed and labelled by hand and this little tin is only £12.50 As well as their tinned candles they also wax melt bars, wax melt slider tins, room mists, pillar candles, beach towels, tea lights and notelets. Their gorgeous wax melters are made by hand by artisan potter Maryjane Macleod in South Devon in her stunning rustic pottery studio.
2. Boostology sell (amongst other things) these beautiful scented candles in a hand carved solid black marble tea light candle holder. Each product from this company is designed to give the customer, and the planet, a boost. They have over 20 years of experience in the business and developed a range of exclusive products that you cannot buy from anywhere else.
Boostology have gifts that are kind to you, and the environment and their range includes organic, vegan, plastic-free ideas and much more. As part of the companies commitment to the environment they have banned products that are made entirely from plastic. You will only find small plastic accessories (for example lids) on their website, where no pother alternative was available to them. They plant one tree for every order placed with them, which is truly amazing and is all thanks to a tie-up with ecologi.com. A natural, reusable scented candle gift that keeps on giving from £19.
3. Vegan Bunny was born with a Vegan mindset evolving Into a Plastic Free, Carbon Neutral & reduced marketing concept. Their candles are made with natural ingredients, natural Waxes & Pure essential oils free from toxic artificial fragrances, Zinc & pesticides. The main ingredient on every tin it’s love.
They also love to plant a tree. For years they have been planting trees and finally in 2020 they started planting one Tree per candle sold on their website.
