We take looking after our local environment very seriously which is why we do our best to remain eco-friendly by using natural ingredients sourced from local companies(instead of importing from all around the globe) and ensuring that as much as possible we use recycable materials when packing your order without putting your fragile scented goodies at risk!
There is always more that can be done both locally and globally which is why not only are we reducing the amount of plastic and other non-recycable materials being used, we have now after much deliberation decided to partner with Ecologi, with a portion of profits from all sales of our Handmade Irish Candles going to help with global efforts to fight climate change and offsetting our carbon footprint!
Ecologi gives ordinary people and companies the opportunity to help take on the Climate Crisis.They use the money that they raise to contribute to two main causes:
Tree planting- It's Common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis and keep our temperatures from rising above 1.5C is to plant trees. They are also crucial to preventing ecological collapse. They partner with The Eden Reforestation Project to plant millions of trees around the world each month and are currently supporting their incredible work in Madagascar.
Carbon Reduction- They invest into a range of projects in an effort to remove more greenhouse gasses than our own carbon footprint puts in.
They measure their profit in impact, and this is reflected in how they spend the money that is contributed to them. 85% of all the money they receive goes directly to funding these planet saving projects. With the rest they cover everything else including staff costs, and hosting and licenses.
