Every item from Ocean collection cleans 1 kg of plastic
Positive impact is done through our collaboration with River Cleanup, a non-profit organisation that organises waterway cleanups that are done in strategic locations, to stop the flow of plastic to oceans.
We are happy to support River Cleanup, an European non-profit organisation with ambition. River Cleanup is focusing on the health of our rivers by activating people, educating children, transforming companies and organising cleanup events.
What makes River Cleanup unique is the added focus on spreading awareness to the public. This understanding that trash problem is an educational issue is something that we at Candles4planet strongly agree with.
Your most common questions:
How and where are your candles made?
Our candles are handmade in small workshop in Slovakia. This location gives us a possibility to source European ingredients from a geographically central position, reducing carbon footprint from excessive need of transportation within the supply chain. Candle vessels come from Vietnam on sea freight transportation, slow but most ecological alternative while giving coconut shells a new life.
What ingredients do you use?
We have sourced ingredients with care to create safe and sustainable products. All products are vegan, cruelty-free and phthalate-free to show our care for environment while creating enjoyable candle experience. Candles are made from a blend of rapeseed and sunflower wax, sourced locally from Europe. We use led-free wooden wicks, made from maple wood with no additives. Candle scents come from natural essential oils. Candle vessels are made from coconut shells, giving a new life to otherwise unusable material. Tea light holders are also handcrafted from coconut shells.
How does your CO2 neutral shipping work?
Yearly offset for deliveries is done by donations to tree planting projects.
CO2 emissions are calculated using appropriate tools that implement the methodology of EU EN16258 standard. Destination city, transport route and vehicle are taken into consideration. Each mangrove tree removes an average of 12 kg of CO2 per year according to report from Eden Reforestation projects. Calculations are always done with a 20% safety margin to be on the safe side of CO2 emissions generated and offset.
Do you use ecological packaging materials?
Packaging is from recycled materials and plastic free.
Handmade by us with care and intention to deliver wonderful candles to your doorstep while creating positive impact to the planet.
All candles are made from natural materials, reused coconut shells and vegetable waxes cultivated and processed in Europe.
Candles come with a positive impact; planting trees, cleaning plastic out of the waterways or providing water for people in need.
