Alchemy is made from 67 post-consumer plastic bottles that would otherwise have found their way to a landfill or into the ocean and polluted our planet. Instead, bottles are collected, then processed into their basic virgin oil to manufacture one 8oz Alchemy.

We even upcycle ocean plastic (and that’s super hard. google it)

Save the planet.

By burning this candle you are, literally, completing the process of safely eliminating plastic garbage from the planet, forever.

Even the container is made from aluminum which is endlessly recyclable.
