OilRight is an eco-inclusive social business from Timișoara that offers a clean and handy alternative for collecting and reusing used cooking oil.

OilRight, in partnership with Borcanul de Ulei, focuses on the involvement of individuals as collectors of household consumers who produce more than 50% of the used cooking oil. For them there is no legal obligation to collect properly, as a result more than 90% of them do not collect it selectively.

The oil is processed and transformed, with the help of the vulnerable people employed, into an eco-chic product – quality candles with a simple and attractive design for sustainable relaxation and responsible interior decoration.
