WINE NOT

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

Did you know billions of wine bottles are buried in landfill every year and they take more than a million years to decompose, yep we were pretty surprised too. So we set out on a mission to rescue & reuse them purposfully and we succeeded.

Unwined was born in 2010 from a passion to reduce the impact on our earth and to find a sustainable solution to some of our biggest contributers. We persisted with finding a way to repurpose wine bottles and turn them into another mass produced product trying to plug two holes at once.

Almost every candle today is made from new glass, even if the glass has been crushed and remade the process that it goes though is worse than the initial process in the first place. Wine bottles are of exceptional quality and durability we've conducts years of testing to ensure its safe and what we found is it exceeds any other candle vessel on the market. Glass is not easy nor safe to work with however once you master it's harshness it can transform into many incredible things. Glass is an amazing resource made from natural & abundant raw materials like sand, soda ash & limestone. Most wine bottle glass is made right here Australia but once used its discarded and there's currently no viable market for it so it goes deep in landfill. 

We couldn't allow such a resilient product to go to waste. The process has been long and frustrating at times we've encounted many set backs along the way, challenging tradition candle making techniques and changing formulas so imbedded in industry. 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 candle 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.

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.
