New Sheffield candle company to help tackle food poverty
A new home fragrance brand has landed – this time with a mission to give back. As well as being vegan, cruelty free and eco-friendly, the Sheffield independent has pledged their New Years’ resolution – to partner with FareShare, the UK’s largest charity fighting both hunger and food waste.
From the 1st January 2021, for every website order placed, Ashley’s Apothecary will donate the funds to enable FareShare to provide a meal for a vulnerable person.
”2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, but for some the knock on effect will continue to be catastrophic moving into the new year. We wanted to create a business with a conscience and part of that responsibility is giving back to the community. FareShare seemed like a brilliant charity to partner with, tackling both issues of hunger and food waste on a national level. We firmly believe every child and adult in need has the right to food – and we hope our customers share that view too.” – Rebecca Ashley (Owner and maker).
The new business has already had an influx of orders, selling out of a number of products during their opening weekend. Their current range includes home fragrance products such as candles, diffusers and wax melts, however the vegan brand has announced it will be launching a number of bath and body products in the new year. the aim is to become a brand that can offer a range of products to make both you and your house smell beautiful.
