Reduce: Reducing the amount of waste you produce is the best way to help the environment.
Reuse: Instead of throwing things away, try to find ways to reuse them.
Recycle: Many things we normally throw away can be recycled. We can create new items from recycled materials.
But do we at Nimbus Candles practice what we preach?
We would like to take the time and inform our fans and customers that since we opened in 2009 we recycle all our materials and very little waste goes to the conventional bin.
All our boxes are recycled and reused for packaging either as actual boxes or they are cut down and used as fillers for safer shipment.
Our candle packaging as well as our containers can be reused as well as recycled.
All left over wax from our candle making is put in a special soy recycle bin. From there we take the wax and we filter it in order to take out any debris and then we use this wax to create, eco-friendly, clean burning, fragrant fire-starters for the fire place or barbecue. No more petrol smelling or paraffin wax being burned to start your fire. Our leftover wicks are also recycled. They are collected and used in the fire-starters. (Comming soon to our e-shop)
We have installed an active carbon-air filter system so we do not pollute in any way the surrounding eco-system.
All our candle-making machines are modern, low consumption in order to minimize our carbon footprint. We only use energy saving light bulbs. Our Air-Condition for the hot summer months is an inverter system for better energy control and is graded as A+ in the energy saving scale.
We have signed up with an independent electricity provider who utilizes and is expanding its renewable energy investments. We also give back 0.004 cents per KW used in order to accelerate the renewable energy expansion.
These are a few of the steps we take to respect The Three R's of the Environment, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
For the future we envision our candle making facility to be private premises and to produce our candles solely on renewable energy.
