Old Oil into Candles

27 Apr

The first time that I heard about this new product I was thrilled. I’m that kind of person that freaks out when the cooking oil is overused and has to go to the garbage.  I read once, that one drop of cooking oil pollutes the same water as a human being pollutes is all life. 1 DROP!!! (I’m aware that this is exaggerated, but it scares huh?)

Did you know that just 1 liter of wasted cooking oil can contaminate 1 million liters of water?!

So you gotta love this machine! Oon Home Recycling Solutions is a Lisbon-based company that develops innovative green products.

Oon Candlemaker transforms old cooking oil into fragrant decorative candles! How awesome is this?

You are not just saving the planet by polluting less (reducing), but you’re also recycling and reutilizing oil as candles. And the best part is: The candles have fragrance!

For me this is one of the most (if not the most) creative sustainable gadget of all time!

Fragrances:

  • spicy orange
  • cozy jasmine
  • blueberry smoothie
  • sea lemons
  • handpicked apples
  • sweet coffee cream
  • naked soul (whatever that is)

The Oon Candlemaker is a great product and has an astonishing design. It only costs 199€ and it comes with seven pods (that neutralize the oil smell, and provide color and fragrance to the candles). Check how it works on their website.

    Nice idea. In Germany, another company produces candles out of used oils. http://www.biokema.de mostly tealights and affordable as well
