4 Etsy Shops With Eco-Friendly Candles

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that candles are my favorite way to add a feeling of warmth and coziness throughout my home (some people would probably consider it an unhealthy obsession).

But did you know that most of the candles sold today can have negative effects on the environment?

Depending on the type of wax used, your candles may be releasing toxins into the air which is not only harmful to the environment, but to you as well.

And if you use candles regularly, they also have the potential to create a lot of waste.

These Etsy shops consider the environmental impact that most candles have, and provide more sustainable options.

KodiakImpactCo

What Makes These Candles Eco-Friendly?

Candles from KodiakImpactCo are handmade with pure soy wax and have wooden wicks that create a crackling effect. They’re vegan, non-toxic, and come in a reusable glass that can be used as a tumbler once the candle is used.

They also donate $1.00 from each product sold to the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, and they’ll plant a real tree on your behalf for each individual product you purchase.

TheRainforestCandle

What Makes These Candles Eco-Friendly?

TheRainforestCandle products are handmade in small batches and contain 100% natural, sustainably sourced soy wax and no dyes. Their fragrances are phthalate-free, made with essential oils, and the wicks are lead and zinc-free and made of cotton.

The cute jars make them super easy to upcycle, and they also donate 10% of your purchase to Rainforest Trust, a non-profit organization that protects endangered species, threatened rainforests, and tropical ecosystems globally.

LjosCandles

What Makes These Candles Eco-Friendly?

All LjosCandles are vegan and handmade with 100% natural and sustainable soy wax, and scented with essential oils.

Each one of their candles features a unique blend of essential oils that can help reduce feelings of anxiety, ease congestion, increase energy, and more! They also offer free shipping worldwide.

CocoandBubbles

What Makes These Candles Eco-Friendly?

CocoandBubbles uses 100% soy wax, natural cotton wicks, and phthalate free fragrance. Their candles are also hand-poured.

Similar to KodiakImpactCo, their products come in a glass tumbler that can be reused once you finish using the candle.

I hope next time you’re shopping for candles you’ll choose to support one of these sustainable small businesses. Thanks for reading, have a lovely day!
