Here at Brooklyn Candle Studio, we believe in both social and environmental sustainability - everything from the organizations we support, the company policies we put in place, to the sourcing of high quality raw materials matter a great deal to us. Sustainability is at the heart of our company’s approach to business.
We support the local economy by sourcing 100% of the soy wax used in production from the United States. We do our best to source all other components of our products within the US too, including wicks, boxes, labels, and vessels. Furthermore, we also support causes that are important to us and, collaborate with like-minded artists, donating a percentage of revenues to organizations and charities that support women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and human rights.
REUSED & REPURPOSED
• Recycling : Boxes
• Upcycling : Vessels
• Manufacturing process conceived to limit waste
Our manufacturing process and products are conceived to limit waste. We work with glass, tin, and ceramic vessels - all of which can be reused and repurposed: Pencil holder, planter, bathroom organizer, the possibilities are endless! The glass vessels and boxes can be recycled.
We do not use any plastic when shipping our products – only cardboard boxes packed with kraft paper and cellulose wadding as dunnage. Our international logistics center reuses anything they can, from the cardboard boxes to the dunnage. All of these materials are recyclable and/or biodegradable. If you ever find plastic within your shipment (bubble wrap, air pillows, etc.), these have been reused from shipments we received in our studio from another supplier. We would prefer to reuse it than to throw it away.
A NOTE ON SOAP BARS
Our bar soaps are made with 95% naturally-derived ingredients. We worked hard to find a manufacturing partner that shared our beliefs for a safe, sustainable, and high quality product for your face and body. For example, there is no animal testing and no toxic ingredients. Our soaps are safe to use for everyone in your home. They are made in the USA.
