Man-Cans: Candles Inside Real Soup Cans

Man-Cans: Candles Inside Real Soup Cans

We first saw Man Cans on a friend's Twitter feed and almost immediately followed the link. I mean, how can you pass up that name? Man Can! It seems somehow dirty but innocent at the same time.

It turns out, Man Cans are more than just a funny name. The candles are built inside real soup cans, which are the empties collected from soup kitchens. Once the cans are cleaned and the labels stripped, they're filled with candles in scents that appeal to men. Grandpa's Pipe, Sawdust, Gunpowder and so on.

Check out the full line and the backstory over at the Man Cans website.
