The rise of Upcycling

Updated: Aug 21, 2020

For those who haven’t heard the term before upcycling is the method of converting waste materials and useless products into something more desirable and more valuable.


This conversion from waste to want requires a little bit of creativity, often reinventing the items original purpose into something totally new.



Consumers want to ensure they are supporting the environment and are sometimes happy to pay more for upcycled and recycled goods in order to do their part.

What is the difference between upcycling and recycling?


#Upcycling is about turning waste into reusable products whereas #recycling usually involves melting down a material to be used again.


Recycling focuses on reusing old items to become new items whereas upcycling is all about taking an old item or product and recreating it into something desirable.


Upcycling is often associated with being thrifty or having to extend the life of an item as the materials may be hard to come by again. Nowadays the rise in conscientious consumerism means more people are being socially aware of where and how products are made and how to avoid them ending up in landfill.


Consumers want to ensure they are supporting the environment and are sometimes happy to pay more for upcycled and recycled goods in order to do their part.

Here at Champagne and Candles that is exactly what we do, we take premium champagne bottles from the likes of #Bollinger, #Moet, #PiperHeidsieck and #Mumm to name but a few, and re-invent them into luxury scented candles.


All our candles are handmade and made with the best essential oils to give beautiful aromatic experiences allowing that memory of the event celebrated when popping that champagne to live on long after that bottle is empty.


We hope you enjoy our range of candles, you can shop for them by clicking Shop Champagne Bottle Candles, we even do custom orders so if you have a bottle from a special occasion you can send it to us and we can create a candle to give as a beautiful and thoughtful Anniversary gift or Valentines Gift.


We would also love to hear from you if you have some ideas for amazing fragrances we are always looking for inspiration! Contact us
