Your impact 

Give waste a new life: PREVENTS THE CONTAMINATION OF 150m3 OF WATER.

With candles made from wasted vegetable cooking oils, you contribute to a greener, healthier, and more sustainable planet. The candles are environmentally friendly products that materialize a circular economy in a domestic environment, that make people of all ages, including children, love their waste!

Save water and oil: in five days, a European citizen consumes an average of 1.000 L of water. On the other hand, for every 1L of wasted vegetable cooking oil, that is not properly recycled, it pollutes 1.000.000 L of water. 

Prevent contaminationIn 90% of cases, the wasted cooking oil is poured into the sink. In contact with water, it forms a layer at the top that prevents the absorption of oxygen and sunlight by marine life. It is also difficult to eliminate in the pipelines, causing clogging and, above all, a problem in cleaning the wastewater, which is, therefore, one of the main causes of water contamination. 

  

Candles tested by international laboratories.

Light only in a supervised place. Only to be used by adults or under adult supervision. Keep away from children and pets. Always leave at least 10 em between burning candles. Do not burn candles on or near anything that can catch on fire. May cause an allergic reaction. Should not exceed 3h – 4h continuous burning.

Your impact 

Give waste a new life: PREVENTS THE CONTAMINATION OF 150m3 OF WATER.

With candles made from wasted vegetable cooking oils, you contribute to a greener, healthier, and more sustainable planet. The candles are environmentally friendly products that materialize a circular economy in a domestic environment, that make people of all ages, including children, love their waste!

Save water and oil: in five days, a European citizen consumes an average of 1.000 L of water. On the other hand, for every 1L of wasted vegetable cooking oil, that is not properly recycled, it pollutes 1.000.000 L of water. 

Prevent contaminationIn 90% of cases, the wasted cooking oil is poured into the sink. In contact with water, it forms a layer at the top that prevents the absorption of oxygen and sunlight by marine life. It is also difficult to eliminate in the pipelines, causing clogging and, above all, a problem in cleaning the wastewater, which is, therefore, one of the main causes of water contamination. 

  

Candles tested by international laboratories.

Light only in a supervised place. Only to be used by adults or under adult supervision. Keep away from children and pets. Always leave at least 10 em between burning candles. Do not burn candles on or near anything that can catch on fire. May cause an allergic reaction. Should not exceed 3h – 4h continuous burning.

Paper High

Our elephant dung paper notebooks make a great quirky but practical gift. They are Fair Trade and perfect for use as a journal or simply as an everyday notebook.

The elephant dung covers are made from 75% elephant dung and 25% recycled paper – yes really! The notebooks are filled with approximately 50 pages of paddy husk paper, a beautiful handmade paper that is very smooth and easy to write on with any pen of your choice. All the paper is acid-free.

The notebooks are handmade by skilled local artisans who complete the designs with a brass elephant motif. Only natural dyes are used.

Each piece is uniqueas everything is handmade and the shade and smuttiness of the paper depends on the elephant diet!

Dimensions: 15.5 x 20.5 cm

Your impact

Give waste another life and Be fair to peopleAll the elephant dung paper used in our products is acid-free and handmade at the Maximus Elephant Conservation Trust in Sri Lanka. Zero waste and fair to artisans in the rural communities who are paid fair wages for manufacturing and also to local villages working at collecting the elephant dung that is used to make the paper.

With your purchase you are also supporting Millennium Elephant Foundation (MEF), a small charity that cares for sick, old and disabled elephants. The foundation is also working to resolve the conflict between elephants and local communities, a critical concern as the elephants' natural habitat decreases and they turn to eating farmers' crops.
