The Winter Collection launches on 1st November!
Hello there! My name is Allie and I run New Moon Candles completely by myself from my tiny kitchen in the heart of Sussex. The welfare of our Earth has been a lifelong passion for me, from being a founding member of my primary school's eco club, to living plastic free as an adult.
Scented candles have always been a must-have item for my home decor, but when I began making big changes towards living sustainably my eyes were opened to just how wasteful the industry is. From the manufacturing of petroleum-based waxes to the heaps of plastic wrapping it all comes in, I could no longer buy main brand candles and have that on my conscience.
So, what is a candle addict to do? Make my own, of course! And now I'd like to share them with you too. Read on to find out about our products and their sustainability.
We use 100% EcoSoya wax in all of our products. EcoSoya is a family run UK based brand that has been manufacturing wax for nearly 60 years. They, like us, pledge to be sustainable, vegan friendly, and biodegradable.
Every single aspect of our packaging - from product labels, to gift boxes, to packing peanuts - is completely free from plastic, fully recyclable and biodegradable.
All of our gift boxes, shipping boxes, and even label paper are FSC certified. This means that the wood they are made from comes from responsible, sustainable woodland, with minimal impact to wildlife and the environment.
We're powered by Octopus Energy who provide energy from 100% renewable sources, greatly reducing the impact of our production process on the planet.
All of our products are suitable for vegans and not tested on animals at any stage - this includes raw materials prior to us receiving them. We regularly audit our suppliers to ensure we are keeping our vegan friendly promise.
