We keep the lifespan of our products at the top of mind, from production all the way to what happens to containers once you’ve used up our products. This past summer, we kick started our jar recycling program at our L.A. shops, and we also have a few suggestions on how to reuse containers.
REUSE CONTAINERSThere are many creative ways in which you can reuse your empties. Use them for storage, organizing your home or office, or as planters or propagation vessels. The possibilities are endless, but first, make sure to properly clean your candle jars.
HOW TO CLEAN OUT YOUR JAR
- OVEN METHOD: Remove all labels and pop your candle jar in the oven at its lowest setting until any remaining wax melts. Carefully remove the jar from the oven to pour the wax into the trash, pop out the wick holder using a spoon or fork, and wipe the inside clean with a cloth. Hand wash, rinse, and dry.
- FREEZER METHOD: Place your candle into the freezer until the remaining wax hardens, then carefully chip out and throw away the wax using a spoon, being sure to remove the wick holder as well. Use a cloth to wipe the inside clean, hand wash, rinse, and dry.
FOR DIFFUSERS, SUNSET INCENSE, AND ROOM SPRAY BOTTLESJust hand wash, rinse, and dry! Reed diffuser and room spray bottles are great for propagating, simply fill with water and add your cuttings.
Note: Vessels should be hand washed before reuse and not placed inside dishwashers. We do not suggest using candle jars or any P.F. packaging for reuse as food storage or drinkware.
JAR RECYCLING PROGRAMReturn your clean, empty candle jars to our Echo Park or Culver City shops and receive a punch card towards a free candle. 3 jars = 1 punch, and 10 punches = 1 free Classic or Sunset candle of your choice!
Note: We’re currently accepting Classic glass candle jars and Sunset candle tins only. Must bring three or more jars to receive a card punch.
Thanks for your question, Faith! We suggest keeping items you eat or drink with separate from items that once held fragrances in them, and hand washing is the best way to do so. If you have additional questions, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
why not put the glass jars in the dishwasher?
