Women 2.0 Holds Up Prosperity Candle as an Example of Triple Bottom Line Business
April 25, 2012
Women 2.0, a website that advances women’s voices in founding and running companies – of all types – is a fantastic resource for women and entrepreneurship. We’re honored that our Founding Partner, Siiri Morley, wrote a guest blog for Women 2.o about running a triple bottom line business. In the blog she discusses the challenges (and joys!) of running a triple bottom line business that focuses on social, environmental and financial returns. Learn more hereabout how Prosperity Candle juggles these priorities to empower women economically from places like Haiti, Burma and Iraq.
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!

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.
