Survival Candle

Recycling small/medium/large cans, cardboard and wax into a survival candle which can be used for cooking, warmth and light.

These candles, once loaded can give off good reliable (non drip) heat and light in very unfavourable conditions.

They can be lit and extinguished as many times as you like. Once used up, the can can simply be repacked and used again.

These candles are incredibly portable and perfect for campers, or as Stephen recently discovered, the homeless.He finds people sleeping rough and offers these candles to them for comfort and survival.

This Awesome grant will be used to purchase non-toxic wax (soy-based) so that Stephen can continue to make these up-cycled candles
