We searched high and low to bring you a candle that is ethically produced and safe to burn. Here’s how we’re doing it.
Our goal is to have no carbon footprint, something we call #NetteZero. We’re partnering with a few amazing organizations to help get us there.
1% For The Planet
We’ve committed to donating 1% of our annual revenue to a collection of charities dedicated to protecting Mother Earth. Through our work with 1% For The Planet, an incredible organization co-founded by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, we’re able to give to environmental causes that need our help in a thoughtful and impactful manner.
For every order placed on our site, one tree is planted (most often through the Eden Reforestation Projects). Sustainability is at the heart of what we do and we want to ensure that our business is as close to carbon neutral as possible. We offset the carbon footprint associated with the production and shipping of all of our products, along with the travel of our team members. We work with Ecologi to maintain our Climate Positive Workforce.
Green Chemistry refers to doing chemistry the way nature does, based on a set of well-known principles. We work together with our team at IFF to ensure that our fragrances are created with the highest regard for these principles, aiming to prevent waste, ensure energy efficiency, use renewable feed stocks, and more.
🌱Practices are aimed at preventing waste and are designed to ensure energy efficiency (we use upcycled ingredients and renewable energy).
🌱 Reduces pollution at its source.
🌱 Chemicals and products are designed to degrade after use, breaking down to substances that won’t accumulate in the environment.
🌱 Feed sources are renewable rather than depleting, often using agricultural products or the waste from other processes.
🌱Limits waste as much as possible, meaning the final products contain the maximum amount of the starting materials.
🌱Products are formulated to be maximally effective with little or no toxicity to the environment.
🌱Avoids using solvents, separation agents, or other auxiliary chemicals.
🌱Analysis is done in real time to prevent pollution and minimize or eliminate byproducts.
The buck doesn’t stop there. We’re always looking at ways we do more! If you have any questions or an idea of an organization that you’d like to see us support, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
