Happy Earth Day
This Earth Day, we are taking a step back to reflect and make sure that we are doing all we can to help protect our environment and our planet here at Milwaukee Candle Co. We certainly know the impact one person can have and the importance of sustainable business practices.
With that said, we feel like we’re doing a pretty good job here. We found lots of things to be proud of, but we will always continue to make our practices even cleaner and more sustainable. One thing to love about our candles is our plastic-free packaging! A substantial portion of our packaging is actually reused and repurposed kraft paper.
All of our candles are hand-poured with love, using 100% soy wax, which is a renewable resource! Not only is soy wax a more environmentally friendly choice than traditional paraffin wax, it also burns cleaner and longer so you get the most use out of your candles!
One of our favorite candles we’ve created is our Whiskey Old Fashioned candle in collaboration with Great Northern Distilling. One amazing thing about this candle is that it comes in a reusable rocks glass, so after you’re done burning the candle you can enjoy a drink in the same glass. We recommend trying Great Northern’s Whiskey Old Fashioned recipe!
Finally, all of our candles are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben-free, which makes us feel great about what we’ve been able to create here. We definitely try to do our part to keep our environment clean and healthy, but we know we can always improve! By next Earth Day hopefully we have even more good news to share with you, and we hope you can say the same about yourselves!
Today and every day, be sure to do your part to keep our planet healthy! Some easy fixes you can make in your life include taking shorter showers (even by a minute or two!) or putting an extra emphasis on recycling in your home!
