We are thrilled to reveal that The Recycled Candle Company has won an International Green Apple Environment Award in the campaign to find the greenest companies.
We competed against more than 500 other nominations to scoop one of the coveted awards which ‘recognise, reward and promote environmental best practice around the world’. The awards presentation takes place at the Houses of Parliament on November 15th (a return to where we collected our Best Small Shops Runners Up Award in 2019).
Just as exciting was being named the winner of the Retailer award at the Exeter Living Awards on September 2nd. These awards are judged by local business people so we are ultra-happy to be recognised by our peers.
We collected the award at the event at the Great Hall where Richard decided to utter expletives not once but twice in his acceptance speech. Sorry if you were there….
You are very welcome to pop into the shop and see the lovely Exeter Living awards trophy now gracing our shelves. We’d love to see you.
After the madness of the past year and the impact of the lockdowns which meant closing the shop several times, it is extra special to win not one but two awards within weeks!
We’d like to say a huge thank you to the lovely people and businesses who continue to collect and donate their old candles to be reused and to all our amazing supporters. We remain true to ourselves and to our mission, and we’re glad you’re along for the ride.
