Paddywax was a brand that I found out about after one of my strolls through Anthropologie. Yeah, I treat Anthro like a little park of sorts. I walk through the entrance and then over to the home goods area to check out the gorgeous plates, then over to the jewelry racks to try on necklaces, then a quick perusal through the books, and then back around to the scents section where I sniff and spritz. I get a little workout walking through the store while getting tons of inspiration at the same time. Win-win. I just saw that Paddywax has the coolest ECO Green collection and the packaging comes from...wait for it...upcycled wine bottles! (Now question, who's the one sipping the vino from all those bottles?? Totally kidding...kind of.)
I love that the candles are soy and hand poured but the best part is the sustainability of the containers. Once you're through burning, you've got a new jewelry holder, a little vase to grow herbs in, or in my case a container to hold all my safety pins in!
The scents also make you feel like you're at the Farmers' Market as they include Basil + Cucumber, Rosemary + Citrus, and Thyme + Olive Leaf. Super cool concept from a super earth friendly brand!
