Evergreen Candleworks Green Organic Soy Candles
I love lighting a candle or two in the evening but I’ve heard that many candles release toxins into the air and can be bad for our health and air quality.
I was thrilled to learn about Evergreen Candleworks, an Evergreen, Colorado-based candle company that makes candles that are better for the environment and healthier for people. They use soy wax which is safer than parrafin wax, and they use no fillers, colors, lead, tin, zinc or anything else that could be harmful. Evergreen Candleworks is powered 100% by windpower.
Alpineglow candles come in distinctive glassware (above left) which makes it beautiful to display at home or to give as a gift. Plus, the containers are reusable which of course I love. The burn time is 65-80 hours which is a lot better than those little tea lights I’m always tempted to buy at IKEA!
Silky Soy candles and lotion bars (above right) is especially for our skin- how cool. You melt them on the warmer, which is sold as part of the kit, and then apply to your skin. (A hot oil treatment like this is probably $295.00 at the hotel spa!)
Companies like Evergreen Candleworks restore my faith that the world is full of good people doing good things.
