UMCOR, Equal Exchange, Serrv, & Prosperity Candle: Giving Back Even More!
December 03, 2012
Right in time for the holidays, we’re proud to premiere three new gift sets that give back a little bit extra — a 10% donation to UMCOR! The United Methodist Committee on Relief has been a wonderful partner for Prosperity Candle, and now we’re showcasing three fair trade sets featuring delicious Equal Exchange goodies, beautiful Serrv housewares, and — of course — Prosperity candles!
Holiday Cheer, $24 Bring a smile to someone’s face with this trio of global goodness. We think that Equal Exchange’s Chocolate Caramel Crunch bar is a perfectly sweet way to celebrate the season, especially when you pair it with a handcrafted crackle-glass ornament. Light your UMCOR soy-blend travel tin candle, and you’ll be well on your way to a holiday that is both merry and bright.
A Peaceful Moment, $30 At the end of a long day, take time for a peaceful moment with this fair trade gift set. Fill your oversized (16 ounces!) wood-fired ceramic mug with soothing, organic Equal Exchange chamomile tea. Light your UMCOR soy-blend travel tin candle as you sip your tea and enjoy your meditative moment.
Start the Day Right, $39 Start your day right with Hope’s Blend Coffee from Equal Exchange in a handcrafted mug from SERRV. Fill your oversized (16 ounces!) wood-fired ceramic mug, light your UMCOR soy-blend travel tin candle, and take a moment to yourself before the hustle and bustle of the day begins!
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.
