Upcycling, Rethinking & Reusing

At Mae & George Home Fragrances we’re incorporating sustainability practices one day, product and package at a time. As we continue to grow, we're constantly looking for new ways to help our planet win.

Rethinking & Reusing: Our vessels have numerous uses once the life of the candle is finished. Rethinking what a vessel's new life can be is limitless, rather than toss them when the candle is done, we encourage rethinking what they can become next.

Here's some ideas:

  • Planters
  • Trinket Holders
  • Drinking Glasses
  • Propagation vessels
  • Cotton ball or cotton swab holders
  • Candy dishes

Recycling: As we grow we're finding new ways to package and ship our products using as much recyclable material as possible. For example, during shipping we incorporate biodegradable packing peanuts using organic starch. 

Our products: We incorporate natural ingredients into our products. Our candles are made with a luxurious, 100% plant based wax that is non-toxic, paraben and phthalate free. Our wicks are made with natural materials of cotton or wood and we also incorporate and infuse our fragrances with essential oils.
