Riversdale Essence Doubles Down On Sustainable Impact with Play It Green

Riversdale Essence has partnered with Play It Green to make their workforce climate positive, drive sustainability within their business, and help them reach Net Zero.


Riversdale Essence makes scented candles and wax melts and artisan soaps in their country workshop in Fermanagh, Northern Ireland using sustainable natural wax and paraben-free oils.


They pride themselves on design, craftsmanship, ethical production, and accessible prices.


Through their partnership with Play it Green, Riversdale Essence will now be provided with the weekly tips and tools to lower their carbon footprint and accelerate their journey to net-zero.


This is all done while also making a more immediate environmental and social impact through the trees they plant.


Enough trees are planted every month to more than rebalance the carbon footprint of their staff’s personal lives.


This helps lift vulnerable people out of poverty, as they are employed not only to plant but to care for the trees as they grow in developing areas of the world.

Riversdale Essence candles are made using only the best sustainable and vegan ingredients

Leah Robinson, the owner of Riversdale Essence, said about the partnership:


“At Riversdale Essence we pride ourselves on making our products using only the best sustainable and vegan ingredients.


Now, by partnering with Play It Green we can make an even greater impact.


I am delighted to be part of this cause and to empower people to make sustainable choices. Let’s do this”

Richard Dickson, Co-Founder of Play it Green, added:


“It’s exciting when new partners join the Play It Green community and I love the way Riversdale Essence has gone about making an everyday item become so much more sustainable.


It is collaborations like this that will empower our members to live and work more sustainably.”

As part of the new partnership with Play it Green, Riversdale Essence will receive a weekly
sustainability tips and related discounts on products to help drive behaviour change, enhance the sustainable culture, and lower their carbon footprint.

The weekly correspondence includes sustainability articles to ensure members not only become
more climate aware but more aware of the solutions available to make progress in this area.

Through Play it Green’s unique three-step solution to climate change, Reduce, Repair, and Regive, a tenth of all revenues also go to a good cause of the member’s choice.


Riversdale has chosen Sea Shepherd UK, protecting marine life and ecosystems around the world’s coasts.


Riversdale Essence will also review the nine key programme areas in Play it Green’s Net Zero Framework, free to access for all of our business members to help them drive down their footprint even further.


All the trees are guaranteed to be planted and can be tracked by the public through the Riversdale Essence Forest Garden.
