Pour your own candle, or win a prize on World Refill Day 2023

Join us at Tower 3 on Friday 16 June for a CandleXchange workshop and for a chance to win a gift from our friends at Huskee and Banish.

World Refill Day is a global campaign to prevent plastic pollution and help people live with less waste - calling on businesses, brands and governments to join the refill and reuse revolution and help make single-use plastic a thing of the past.

The environment is everything at International Towers and we couldn’t agree more. So throughout World Refill Day on 16 June, we’ll be doing fun things which give you a chance to do your bit and also win a wonderfully environmentally friendly prize.

All the candle action and special prize giveaways take place from 8am - 1pm Tower Three South Lobby.

Here are some more details:

  1. Hands-On Candle Pouring, 8am to 10am - All spots have SOLD OUT
