    Your impact 

    Give waste a new life: this kit PREVENTS THE CONTAMINATION OF 500m3 OF WATER 

    thanks to the reuse of vegetable oils that would otherwise be wasted.

    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 contamination

    In 90% of the 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. 

     

    How to use 

    Necessary ingredients to make a candle with 110g that saves 100L of water:

    - 100mL of vegetable oil (used or virgin)
    - 1 sachet (20g) of ecological scented wax (included)
    - 1 wick and wickholder (included)
    - Candleholder or another container of your preference

    Preparation time: 5 min.
    Cost: Low
    Difficulty: Low

    To create your candle in a simple & fun way, please follow these simple steps:

    1. Place 100ml of wasted and filtered used vegetable oil in a measuring cup.
    2. Heat it in the microwave for two minutes. If preferred, you can heat it in a boiling water bath.
    3. Add 1 sachet (20g) of scented ecological wax.
    4. Stir the ingredients well to obtain a blended mixture.
    5. Pour the mixture into a heat-resistant container of your choice.
    6. Insert the wick, centering it with the help of the wick holder. It should be placed on the sides of the container.
    7. Leave the candle to solidify (about 20 minutes).

    You can customize your candle even more. If you wish to color your candle, add the pellets between steps number 3 and 4 (maximum 2 pellets per 100mL). For more information about how to color your candles, you can visit our accessories.

                Give waste a new lifeBe fair to people: all the paper is fair trade and handmade in Nepal from Lokta, a plant native to the Himalayas. The paper is acid-free and uses only natural dyes. Harvesting this sustainable plant helps preserve the fragile ecosystem in Nepal and gives regular fairly paid work to the people of many mountain villages. All the paper is handmade by Get Paper Industries (GPI), a socially responsible cooperative in Nepal, active in supporting people affected by HIV and Aids and in establishing schools for the education of underprivileged children.

                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.

                    Fair to people, Save the ocean and Give waste a new lifeRural and local collectors from Patagonia and southern Chile rescue fishing nets, ropes and metals that damage natural ecosystems. The collected waste becomes an additional source of income for them, which they use as seed capital to start and grow their own micro-businesses together with their families.

                    Natural, noble or recycled materials are collected, washed and converted into final products. In the case of plastic, nets are recycled with ECONYL®:  the nylon collected locally in Chile is regenerated into a plastic of the best quality on the market.

Every purchase contributes to the protection of the Puelo and Cochamó River Valleys in Northern Patagonia where Karün and its partner Balloon Latam carry out a 4-year program with a community of more than 600 entrepreneurs and their families.

                        Give waste a new life: PREVENTS THE CONTAMINATION OF 150m3 OF WATER thanks to the reuse of vegetable oils that would otherwise be wasted.

                        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.

                        Give waste a new lifeBe fair to people: all the paper is fair trade and handmade in Nepal from Lokta, a plant native to the Himalayas. The paper is acid-free and uses only natural dyes. Harvesting this sustainable plant helps preserve the fragile ecosystem in Nepal and gives regular fairly paid work to the people of many mountain villages. All the paper is handmade by Get Paper Industries (GPI), a socially responsible cooperative in Nepal, active in supporting people affected by HIV and Aids and in establishing schools for the education of underprivileged children.
