Rekindle Candle Is The Candle Holder That Creates Your Next Candle.

Rekindle Candle - The candle that can 'almost' burn forever.

The Rekindle Candle holder from Benjamin Shine is a simple and brilliant product that turns normally wasted candle wax into a new candle. Here’s more on the Rekindle Candle from Benjamin Shine:

“Rekindle Candle is a candlestick holder, which collects the melting wax to form a new candle. As the candle burns, melting wax drips down from the candle and accumulates inside the transparent stem where a length of wick is centrally located. Once full, the new moulded candle can be removed from the central section to start the process again.”

The Rekindle Candle holder won’t give you candles that burn forever but it would be great item to put in your home emergency kit and camping box. It’s great for everyday use too because everyone will monitor the Rekindle Candle. When it goes out, you can open the plastic holder and rekindle the new candle. [Gizmodo]

LEGO Shoes And Shoes For Life – Lower Your Footprint With LYF Shoes.

LYF Shoes - Pinstripe StyleLYF Shoes must know something about how much people love LEGOs because they’re using the same building-block principles to change the way we buy, repair and wear our shoes. Here’s more about LYF Shoes:

“Individual components are made from single-source sustainable materials and are assembled in 90 seconds to meet a customer’s request. This bypasses those monolithic shoe assembly factories which use toxic glues and ship boxes of air halfway around the world. Our technology allows us to pursue many more fashion, fit and ecological advances than the big brands can – while still being competitive with them on price.

We’ve also unlocked unlimited creative expression using digital integration tools, and created the first LYF Cyclable shoe.”

LYF Shoes are currently on fundraising site Kickstarter.
