When you buy an M&J Candle, you can treat yourself to a bit of luxury whilst knowing that every aspect of this candle – from the packaging to the glass that remains once your candle has burned down has been produced, designed and sourced with ethics and sustainability firmly and foremost in mind. And you can be confident that your purchase is helping to support low-impact, locally-based businesses wherever possible.
All the outer packaging is responsibly produced and certified by World Land Trust. The boxes are printed with vegetable-based ink and covered with water-based coatings.
Everything is manufactured in the UK thus reducing our carbon footprint and keeping people in the UK employed.
About the World Land Trust
Each of the boxes has its carbon footprint measured and calculated and land will be purchased and preserved accordingly in endangered areas of natural forests. A key patron of the World Land Trust is Sir David Attenborough.
To keep up the good work please re-recycle the packaging when you discard the box.
M&J's scents are developed from bespoke blends of fragrances, which are created by a perfumer. The scents are a combination of essential oils and aroma compounds. M & J London have consciously chosen to work with an infusion of both because their research has shown that this is far more ethical and fair than the way in which many essential oils are sourced. They provide a clean-burning candle by using a lead-free wick made of linen and cotton. This means that when burning your M&J Candle, the only thing you will be breathing in is a lovely fragrance.
The wax is made from 100% rainforest safe soya. Soya wax is a renewable green resource that can be replaced at a rate comparable or faster to the rate of consumption. Better still, soya wax does not stain. This means that M&J Candles are better for your home environment as well.
The glass around each candle is made from 100% recycled glass and can be "up-cycled" and reused again as a drinking tumbler. Each candle is hand poured in the UK, each of the glass tumblers are handcrafted entirely of recycled glass – so no two are exactly alike. Just wash it out with warm soapy water after you have finished enjoying your M&J Candle
Supporting a Local Charity
Giving something back to the community is also very important for M & J Candles. They donate £1 from each of the large candles and 50p from each of our small candle sold, to London based women's charity nia which is delivering cutting edge services to end violence against women and children.
