Sustainability

All of the materials we use are vegan, free of animal testing, and most have been Leaping Bunny certified.

    • Vessels
      • In order to prevent adding waste to our environment, we are solely using existing antiques or recycled vessels.
      • Due to this, our vessels may have some minor imperfections but we strive to limit them and note them on the individual product page.
      • We do not brand or label  the vessels so they are more aesthetically pleasing and easier for you to enjoy them in their next incarnation of your choosing.
    • Wax
      • All candles are made from 100% all-natural soy wax, produced from US Grown Soybeans.
      • Our candles are free of additives, dyes, phthalates, or oil based petroleum products.
      • The most important reason to use soy candles is that they burn “clean”. Paraffin wax releases toxins as they burn and Beeswax is non-vegan so this makes soy the obvious better environmental choice.
      • Candles may have minor imperfections which can occur when using 100% soy wax, but we will do our best to limit them and note them on the Product page.
    • Wicks
      • We use two different types of wicks (Wooden & Vegan Hemp) so please refer to the product page to see what is being used for each candle.
        • Vegan Hemp
          • Made with organic rice bran wax and hemp fiber.
        • Wooden
          • Eco-friendly, clean-burning, hand-crafted wooden wicks
          • FSC Certified 100% natural wood from Sappy Fruit Trees sustainably sourced in the USA.
          • Wicks are created using a vegan, non-toxic proprietary adhesive with wood species not listed in the CITED appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. They are not treated.
  • Fragrances
    • All scents are free from carcinogens, reproductive toxins, and other potentially hazardous chemicals often found in fragrances. These create safer home fragrance products you can enjoy with confidence.
  • Dust Cover Seed Paper
    • Made with recycled post-consumer materials that are embedded with Non-GMO seeds which will grow when planted in soil.
    • All candles come with a dust cover; however some will not fit properly over the candle due to its size and/or number of wicks, which in this case it will be included separately.
  • Hang Tag
    • Uncoated premium 16-pt paper.
  • Elastic
    • Organic elastic cord made from organic cotton (40%) and natural rubber (60%), unbleached.
    • This is used to attach the hang tag for some vessels
  • Twine
    • 100% jute twine
    • This is used to attach the hang tag for some vessels.
  • Tape
    • Cellulose film with an adhesive derived from solvent-based natural rubber.
    • This is used, in some cases, to adhere the elastic or twine to the vessel.
  • Packaging
    • All packaging is completely plastic-free.
  • Boxes
    • Made from corrugated cardboard.
  • Candle Wrap
    • Made from kraft paper and tissue paper. It is a sustainable alternative to bubble wrap, which is 100% biodegradable and curbside recyclable.
  • Box Filler
    • Crinkle Paper
      • Paper is dye free so it is non-toxic to humans and animals.
    • Bio Peanuts
      • Made from entirely renewable resources and are 100% bio-degradable and compostable as well as pet-safe.
      • Repurposed from vendor packaging.
