Ethical Candles, Firelighters, Local Artisan Makers
“Saving the planet one candle at a time.”
The Recycled Candle Company was founded in 2014 by Richard Hills-Ingyon and Sargon Latchin. It’s currently the only wax recycling business in the UK and keeps around 400kg of wax out of landfill every month.
All of their fabulous candles are made on site using recycled wax collected from hotels, restaurants, churches and individual donations. These luxury candles are scented with bespoke fragrances designed in collaboration with a UK-based French perfumer. They include the award-winning Bitter Orange & Ylang, Lavender & Rocksalt, Watercolour and Theology.
The shop also sells beautiful firelighters made from the lowest grade wax, plus a range of ethical goods from a handful of local makers, constantly changing and being added to.
