Sharing with the Smallest: Giving Tuesday 2020
At Embla Home, we only use 100% pure beeswax for all our candles. We chose to use beeswax for you. Beeswax candles burn longest and brightest, a clean flame whose light on the same spectrum sunlight. All-natural and all-organic, beeswax candles have little smoke and minimal drip. Beeswax is also great for sensitive users since it's hypoallergenic and emits cleansing negative ions when burned.
Beeswax is actually great for bees too. In using beeswax, we support our beekeepers who ensure that hives are cared for and maintain. Using bee-made products encourages to continue their work in caring for the bee population, which has slowly been dwindling. If this decline is not addressed immediately, it could have serious economic repercussions on everything we do.
We work hard to ensure our beeswax is naturally, ethically, and sustainably sourced. We only work with with experienced, ethical beekeepers who know how to harvest wax and honey from hives without harming the bees and ensuring that the bees have a lot for themselves. As a small business, sustainability is at the heart of our values. After much research and deliberation, we only source beeswax from a fair-trade farm whose values aligns with ours.
This Giving Tuesday, take pride in knowing that when you give something for yourself, you give something back to the bees. Whenever you buy yourself a beautiful, sustainable candle from our collection, we donate 10% of every candle sold to the Planet Bee Foundation. This non-profit organization is based in San Francisco just like us, and they host activities that educate and raise awareness about the needs of the bee population.
Your self-care also cares for the bees, so this Giving Tuesday, thank you for supporting the Planet Bee Foundation, Embla Home, and all the bees around the world.
