Starting from the model developed by OilRight Slovenia since 2014 – www.oilright.eu, OilRight produce decorative and relaxing candles in Timișoara, using as raw material the edible oil generated by households in the city. OilRight employs disabled people with an institutional past or at risk of institutionalization and will donate part of the profit to UnLoc, a social service of the Speranța Empowerment Foundation that supports disabled people with an institutional past or at risk of institutionalization on their way to an independent life.
OILRIGHT candles are more than just eco-friendly products. Scented candles made from wax consisting of recycled waste oil are the solution to several social and environmental problems. It is processed and transformed, with the help of vulnerable people employed, into a quality eco-chic product with a simple and attractive design, for sustainable relaxation and responsible interior decoration. And if you decide to make the candle yourself, you’ll also have fun choosing and mixing the colors. Don’t forget that a single liter of oil left over from cooking fried food and then thrown down the drain or toilet can contaminate up to 1000 liters of water.
The products have different flavors, are made from carefully selected, purified and treated used food oils. They are handmade by people with disabilities. Their candles are completely CO2 neutral, dye-free and burn longer and at a lower temperature than paraffin candles.
