Glowvine started just like any other company, out of sheer frustration with another product. A simple question asked was, "how hard would it be to just turn a candle vessel into something worth keeping when it's finished burning?"
The answer was to create a candle vessel cute and durable enough to turn into a planter.
Glowvine began as a capstone project by Xana Mills. One day when she was sitting and writing a paper, she looked up at the candle on her desk and was disappointed to see that it was almost out of wax. Initially, with the idea of creating a private label candle company, Xana decided it would be better to create a more sustainable product rather than contribute to the recycling industry.
"I wanted to make something that encouraged its user to reuse it rather than tossing it. I know there are a lot of others out there like me who go through multiple candles a month. Even if you were a casual candle burner, I thought I was on to something and wanted to take a chance."
Glowvine candles are hand-made in Toronto, Ontario
