On Tuesday 28th June, St. Eval hosted a grand opening of their new factory and office expansion, wildlife conservation area and pond. At this event the company were also presented with their 2021 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development by the Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall. They opened their factory doors and welcomed media, employees, and members of the community to mark this special occasion.

St. Eval’s Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development was conferred upon the team at this factory opening, presided over by the Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall and the Chairman of the Council and presented to owner and creative visionary Sarah Young-Jamieson.
Being awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development recognises and celebrates St. Eval’s outstanding commitment and achievement in sustainability. Founded nearly 30 years ago by Sarah Young-Jamieson and her late husband Tim, sustainability has always been deeply important to the business, and over the years there has been continued investment in renewable energy and sustainable development. St. Eval proudly produce their own renewable energy via wind, solar and biomass; helping to reduce their carbon footprint and impact on the environment. This new office and factory expansion further supports their pledge, with renewable energy powering this building and an incredible wildlife conservation area and pond created as a haven for nature to flourish.

St. Eval’s new wildlife space has been created in partnership with local companies ensuring only native or non-invasive species of flora were planted, encouraging biodiversity in the area while maintaining and protecting it. Trees and flowers planted in the new wildlife area were chosen not only for their natural beauty, but for their hardy nature so that they would thrive whilst living on the coast surrounded by the sea air. Amongst these newly cultivated areas, the company have left designated spaces for rewilding and alongside this, St. Eval have planted two Crimean Lime Trees which originate from the Ukraine, showing solidarity with the country and its people. St. Eval have included bee bricks from green&blue, swift and bat boxes around the new build which will encourage Cornish fauna to make their homes at the new site.

Nestled on a farm in North Cornwall, St. Eval have been sustainably crafting high-quality candles and home fragrance to beautifully scent your space for over 28 years.

St. Eval continue to create new and exciting candles and fragrances, inspired by nature and following their core values; to protect, nurture and respect each other and the earth. This expansion is a fusion of traditional and contemporary values, and enables the company to increase their production capabilities, cultivate a place for nature to flourish and grow their renewable energy portfolio to further support their sustainability pledge.
