Being sustainable is about making conscious choices, large and small. It's about people as well as the environment.
As a sustainable company, we believe in clean burning candles ethically made with pure ingredients, and love creating designs that can be repurposed in your home for many years of enjoyment after the wax is done. That is what sustainable means to us.
All our waxes, wicks and fragrances are made in the U.S., as is most of our packaging and vessels. This not only supports American farmers, artisans and workers, but also reduces carbon footprint and makes us a sustainable company.
Both our soy and coconut waxes are vegan, and all our waxes are biodegradable. Plant-based waxes are a natural renewable resource, but vary in quality. There are lower cost options, but we are proud to pour ours with premium, all natural soy and coconut waxes for clean-burning, sustainably-made candles.
Beeswax is a wonderful and, when properly harvested, minimally processed, highly renewable resource. Several of our candles blend natural, unbleached beeswax with soy and coconut waxes.
Clean, sustainable ingredients are essential for the well-being of our customers, the environment, and the women artisans who pour each candle.
Paraffin is a byproduct of petroleum refinement and excels with fragrance, which is why most candles are made with some amount of it. But paraffin is part of the ongoing global reliance on fossil fuels which is driving climate change, and burning it releases carcinogens into your home.
This is why we and other sustainable candle-makers choose natural, renewable waxes. They are better for the environment, you and your loved ones, and our collective health.
Following the U.S. announcement to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, a coalition of businesses, nonprofits, faith organizations, cities, towns and schools joined together to continue American commitment to fighting climate change.
