Uncorked Candles....Wine Bottles with a difference
Uncorked Collection – Repurposed Wine bottles
Our brand new collection of candles! 100% soy wax scented with essential oils all hand poured into beautiful repurposed wine bottles we have cut down and polished. Not only do these add a unique look but helps recycle glass.
The UK business sector still has a lot of work to do to recycle glass – bars, restaurants and pubs currently throw away over 200,000 tonnes of glass every year into landfill.
The production and use of glass has a number of environmental impacts. New glass is made from four main ingredients: sand, soda ash, limestone and other additives for colour or special treatments. Although there is no shortage of these raw materials as yet, they all have to be quarried, which can damage the landscape, affect the environment and use more energy.
We take standard wine bottles, cut them down and polish the edges before filling them with 100% Natural Soy wax scented with essential oils. We fill them with enough wax to burn for 80 hours, filling your home with beautiful scents all the way to the bottom! But once you have around 2cm of wax left in the bottom the candle is coming to the end….but don’t fear! You can recycle the glass again and again, just follow the instructions below:-
Let stand in hot water for 5 minutes before tipping wax into bin, then rinise with soapy hot water to remove any wax left along with label if desired.
