“For the Love of Bees” Mother’s Day Gift Premieres in Milkshake!
May 03, 2012
We’re delighted that one of our favorite sites, Milkshake, has featured Prosperity Candle’s “ For the Love of Bees” Mother’s Day gift as its top pick for Moms this year! We agree that it’s a fantastic way to show Mom how much you love her. It helps women refugees – all of whom are Moms – from Burma rebuild their lives here in the United States, by offering them employment. It also allows your Mom to connect directly to the woman who made her candle. Even better, this gift helps her indulge with divine bee-inspired products that all do good! (Yummy honey/sugar body polish & hand/foot balm!) We’ve teamed up with Sweet Beginnings in Chicago to support urban bee-keeping and job training.
Sai Aye joined Prosperity Candle as a candle-maker in 2015, after relocating to the U.S. from a refugee camp along the Burmese-Thai border. Over the years we've had the pleasure of getting to know Sai as a skillful candle-maker and joyful person. She's happily offered to share a glimpse into her life!
Monday, July 30th is World Day Against Trafficking in Persons - a cause that is dear to our hearts. One way you can help victims of human trafficking is by purchasing products made by survivors. We love these handmade products because they celebrate each artisan's skills and creativity.
We are always on a quest to improve quality and reduce our carbon footprint for the well-being of the environment, our customers, and the women artisans pouring each candle. Here's a look at our ingredients and environmental impact.
