At Wickpy, our DIY candle kits help customers connect with nature through safe and rewarding candle-making experiences. With natural, vegan, synthetic and plastic-free craft kits, it's no surprise that Wickpy is a bonafide nature lover who's intent on growing a forest.
What you may not know is that for every candle kit you buy at Wickpy, we grow two new trees in rewilding programs around the world. To find out a little about rewilding and get an update on how the Wickpy forest is progressing, please read on.

What is rewilding?
If you're not familiar with the term, this paragraph from rewildingglobal.org paints a picture of what it means for our planet.
Aewilding means helping nature heal. Rewilding means giving space back to wildlife and returning wildlife back to the land, as well as to the seas. Rewilding means the mass recovery of ecosystems and the life-supporting functions they provide. Rewilding is about allowing natural processes to shape whole ecosystems so that they work in all their colorful complexity to give life to the land and the seas."
Growing the Wickpy forest.
Thanks to you choosing Wickpy for your soy candle making kits, we have grown over 420 trees since November 2020 which we are incredibly proud of and grateful for.
If you would like to join the rewilding revolution and start a forest of your own, you might be surprised how affordably you can begin.
Our rewilding partners, Ecologi, are located in Bristol, and they have made setting up your forest an informative and fun experience.
Warmth & love,
Pour new natural candles with fresh Spring scents.
