On Earth Day, the National Candle Association offers Sustainability Advice.
Earth Day is marked each year on April 22nd and is a time for renewed focus on our Earth and sustainable, Earth-friendly practices. While getting out and about continues to be harder this year due to the pandemic, there are still plenty of ways to support the Earth and her well-being from the comfort of your own home. For example, sustainable candle purchases, as well as, safe and clean burning and recycling practices is a great place to start. Plus, with candles, you can not only help our Earth, you can feel cozy and relaxed, too.
This Earth Day, try out the National Candle Association's inventive and practical tips for Promoting Sustainability:
- Soy Candles: Soy candles, which are created from vegetable oil and burn cleanly, are becoming increasingly popular among those trying to lessen their carbon impact while also enjoying an aesthetically beautiful burn. Customers may feel good about their eco-choices while basking in the warm glow because these candles are created using a renewable resource and are biodegradable. Furthermore, if buyers choose a candle made from US-grown renewable resource wax, soy candles can help the US agriculture business.
- Beeswax Candles: Beeswax candles help the environment by stimulating the increase of bee populations, which are necessary for pollinating flowers for food crops.
- Coconut Wax Candles: This plant-based wax is environmentally friendly because coconut trees require little chemicals and fertilizer.
- Wooden Wicks: These candles not only have the sound of a crackling fire, but they also have an environmentally sustainable wick.
- Wax Melts: Rather than discarding a candle that has run out of wax, de-potting the residual wax at the bottom of the jar can save money and prolong the aroma.
- Anyone can upcycle their old candle jars into planters to create a beautiful indoor garden, whether they are a gardening newbie or a seasoned pro.
