We don't need to hark on about why we should all be thinking more sustainably – there's enough news about the climate crisis to clearly tell us that – but even for the best of us, we still need a nudge in the environmentally friendly direction to make the changes that'll better our planet.

In this day and age, a reusable coffee cup is no longer your get-out-of-jail-free-card for acting sustainably in other areas of your life. Now more than ever, we need to be putting our green thinking caps on and addressing how we can buy more sustainably with the clothes we wear, the beauty we put on our skin and the ornaments we place in our homes. So, this September, we're doing exactly that.

Our new 'Sustainable September' series will be highlighting the best sustainably-minded products and brands that range over fashion, beauty and homeware, everyday throughout the month, showing that there are earth-affable options that you can opt for. Today, we're looking at eco-friendly brand, Evermore, and their luxurious natural wax blend candles.

Relax; a word that holds high importance when navigating through a busy day, and we can bet on the fact that candles will lend a helping hand in achieving this. It's not a surprise that for centuries, candles have been used in sacred ceremonies with the ability to bring a peaceful ambiance into any space. If you are a candle lover like us, you'll have them dotted about in almost every room. But stop, before you put flame to wick there are a few things to consider; while aesthetics are key (a candle is equally important as a homeware feature as a vase is) your favourite scent could be harming you and the environment

Sustainable stalwarts, don't fret, there are plenty of great alternatives now that a growing number of independent brands are producing clean burning and eco-friendly non-toxic wax blends. Intrigued? So are we!

Look to Evermore, a luxurious candle brand whose aim is to give customers the very best blend of vegan waxes and indulgent scents. Founder, Sarah Bell, was inspired to create her own natural candles in 2014 after trying her own at making them and realising that most of the candles on the market were made with paraffin wax; a by-product of crude oil. As if! In a recent interview with Vogue, Bell explained that, “Phthalates are often used in fragrances to make them more stable and last longer, so with these removed, we had a much more difficult task on our hands. Working with natural wax, blended oils and a toxin-free dye made the final product much harder to perfect”. But perfect they did, each vessel is hand-poured with a rapeseed and soy wax for a long-lasting safe burn. The scents? You can have your pick of their six unique fragrances that are an ode to nature, the seasons and the skies, or their collaborations with artist, Alexandria Coe and ceramist, Kana. Whatever scent you choose, be sure that it will leave your room perfumed in deliciousness for up to 60 hours.

What's more, sustainability is clearly at the heart of the brand. Committed to eco-friendly processes, Evermore uses hand-blown recycled glass, FSC-certified card boxes and shredded paper rather than foam peanuts for delivery. These are candles with a conscious, and, as scent is the most evocative sense, Evermore assures that you can truly relax with a peace of mind at the end of your day.
