WHAT'S DIFFERENT ABOUT US IS THAT OUR DIFFERENCE MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Unfortunately, billions of wine bottles are buried in landfill every year. What’s worse is they take more than a million years to decompose!! we were pretty surprised too. We wanted to find a sustainable way to reuse these bottle and help the earth from choking on all that buried glass. 

In 2010, with the help of some pretty creative souls Unwined began production and 10 years later we are still creating high quality candles from wine bottles. 

Our journey would not have been successful without the support of individuals (like yourself) that have purchased our products, shared our story and helped us to reduced our local footprint. 

As frustratIng as it is to see every candle today being made from new glass, the truth is the process won’t stop unless we question it. 

At Unwined we continue to find new ways to repurpose wine bottles, utilising the glass to  recreating new products from the discarded. 

The process at times has been challenging and we've had many set backs along the way, reinventing tradition candle making techniques and changing formulas imbedded as standard in industry is not easy but persistence with the safest, cleanest & purest ingredients has been a game changer. 

We have proven you can create a candle that aligns with every sustainable standard, has long clean 70+ hour burns with incredible hot & cold scent throw, no black residue or soot, is basically smoke free and contains only 100% natural soy wax. We are also proudly vegan friendly, cruelty free & our candles contain absolutely zero paraffin, palm oil or dyes.

Our products will not only challenge the way you look at recycled glass, they will inspire you to see a renewed beauty in the discarded, oh & help you to unwined of course.

  • At Unwined Candle Company

  • It ain’t all glamorous, we really have no way for it to be, we collect all our bottles from the local tip & sticky crates from nightclubs in the wee hours. We then cut, bevel, clean and polish by hand before (our fav part) pouring small batches of creamy wax over all cotton wicks. Ok that does sound a little worse than it really is.
