Several used candle tins and concrete jars, ready to be cleaned and recycled into new candles.

Jar Recycling

We are committed to doing everything we can to lessen our impact on the environment. Every bit helps and our "little bit" today is announcing our candle container recycling program!

How it works:

1.  Enjoy any Paper + Hand candle (tin, concrete or glass jar)

2.  Clean your candle container (get everything out--wax, wick, wick clip) 

3.  Turn in your container at one of our pop ups (check IG for our upcoming markets). From here you have two options:

3a.  Request and pay for a candle refill in your container with any of our in stock fragrances at a discount (for tins $2 off, concrete jars $5 off, and glass jars $6 off) OR,

3b.  Pass it on! We’ll recycle your container and offer it at the same reduced price at a future market. 

4.  If you opt for a refill, we’ll get your contact info and let you know when your new/old candle is ready for market pickup. 

Some things to remember:

  • Please clean your jars! I know, this is my least favorite thing, too. 
  • Keep your lid with your container so your new candle stays nice and clean!
  • I will inspect containers and reseal concrete if needed. If the integrity of the container is in question, I will not re-use the container. If you paid for a refill, you will be refunded.
  • At this time, we're only offering jar recycling locally, on Oahu. 

Can’t wait to see these jars live out their best lives!
