A Green Candle Company creates candles made of 100% pure soy wax that meets both Kosher and FDA standards. Soy wax replaces the traditional paraffin wax that, according to the American Lung Association, emits 11 documented toxins. Their fragrances come from essential oils that are Phthalate free, and wicks that are all paper and cotton. To top it all off the packaging for the candles is made of recycled and/or recyclable materials.
Soy wax candles are cleaner burning, longer lasting, biodegradable and water-soluble. The soybeans the company uses are free from pesticides, herbicides and GMM (genetically modified material) so you are ultimately getting a pure candle from start to finish.
A Green Candle Company also has two lines in which 50% of the proceeds are donated to PETA or Friends 4 The Future. They also have a variety of other collections such as a lotion candle, essential oil collection, and can also make custom candles for special events.
To sweeten the deal, the company offers a recycling program where for every ten jars you ship back to them, they will give you a free candle!
