Our impact

Every candle purchased helps our planet

Thanks to our collaborations with non-profit organisations; with purchase of a candle we plant trees, clean the ocean or provide drinking water for people in need.

Supporting these activities helps local communities  by providing them with work, proper education and helping them out of the cycle of poverty.

All our nature inspired candles are handmade by us and come in a variety of natural scents, leaving only positive impact behind.

We believe in positivity

Carbon Positive

We strive to limit our carbon footprint and in addition plant trees to create positive carbon impact. We see carbon offsetting by planting trees as the most holistic and longterm solution, because trees not only absorb carbon, but also nourish our planet and help people out of poverty.

Thanks to you and Eden Reforestation projects we are able to plant 15 trees per every item sold from our Forest collection. All transport of materials, production and candle shipment to your doorstep are offset. We leave only positive impact behind with natural candles that brings happiness to you and the planet.

We care

Plastic Positive

Plastic is everywhere from toys, tools, fishing nets to single use cutlery. Popularity of plastic comes from its low cost. However, this cost is not low for the planet.

We do all we can to minimise the use of plastic in our activities and packaging to zero. Furthermore, we are allocating funds from our Ocean collection to clean plastic from rivers, preventing it from entering the ocean. Thanks to our collaboration with River Cleanup we clean more plastic than we use. Our hope is that together we leave the world in a better state than we found it.

We help

Life Positive

We believe that everyone on the planet, no matter the location, deserves to have the same possibilities in life. There is much poverty on the world that we don’t see on daily basis, but we can help it. When we support organisations that plant trees, organise clean ups or build wells in poor countries, we also support the impact these organisations have.

Every tree planted provides work and food for people in countries ruled by poverty. Every well build provides safe water for people who see it as a luxury and every clean up provides healthier environment for planet and all of us.

We support

Our candles are inspired by nature

Ecological

When it came to materials, it wasn’t easy. We didn’t want to use containers that are manufactured only for the purpose of our candles.

We found the perfect solution – coconut shells. Coconuts are cultivated for their milk and white meat and their shells are considered as waste material. If they are not reused they end up burned on the land fields.

We love the natural touch coconut shells add to our candles. We are happy to say that our candles are crafted by nature, what makes every candle unique.

We give coconut shells a new life

Sustainable

Candles4planet are made from a blend of rapeseed and sunflower wax. Cultivating of rapeseed and sunflower crops is considered 100% sustainable.

Although these waxes are not the typical ones you find in the stores, their burning properties are excellent while both of these waxes are vegan, non-GMO and biodegradable. It is a great choice for our customers as well as for the planet.

We source our waxes and maple wooden wicks from Europe, to minimise the environmental impact of these most needed ingredients.

We source locally

Every minute one garbage truck of plastic is dumped into our oceans. This has to stop.

By 2050 plastics will outweigh fish in our oceans.

1/3 of money spent on bottled water per year would pay to provide water to everyone.

Still nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink.

10 million hectares of forest is lost yearly as a result of deforestation. Area compered to the size of Iceland

After oceans, forests are the worlds largest storehouses for carbon.

Trees clean the air we breathe by absorbing harmful pollutants and greenhouse gases while releasing oxygen to the atmosphere.
