It takes an estimated 1 million years for a glass bottle to decompose in the environment! Repurposing glass is far less energy intensive than putting it through the recycling process, so this is what Old Vine Candles do! They collect old wine bottles, hand cut and carefully sand the edges, before they are cleaned and transformed into a beautiful fragranced candle for you. Their soy wax candles are all handmade using the highest quality ingredients available. Their candles are unique, and unlike any other you have ever had.
