GJUTA

Palm oil and paraffin derived from petroleum are the main ingredients in tea lights. Most of the world’s bauxite is mined in Australia, and then processed into aluminium in Russia, China, Canada or India. The tea lights sold by big companies are most often produced in one country, then packaged in plastic wrapping and shipped to others. In contrast to this linear and unsustainable system, this product presents a cyclic alternative solution. By facilitating home based production Gjuta aims to encourage more people to make use of candle stumps and prolong the life of their candles. Pour the wax into the mould, let it cool, and enjoy the home made candles.
