Vessel of Light Shines a Light on Human Rights for Amnesty International
December 01, 2011
We thought we’d take a moment to highlight a partnership that we’re incredibly proud of. Amnesty International, a leader in so many lights, is now playing a leadership role with gifts that give back. The team at Amnesty not only loves the symbolism of their candle (just look at their logo) but also loves that each candle we make is advancing human rights for women around the world.
Don’t you think our vibrant yellow candle looks stunning on their shop’s homepage? We’re so proud! Keep your eyes peeled for the Amnesty tin candles, too!
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.
