In the world of luxury candles, the choice of wax can make a world of difference - not just in the quality of the product, but also in its environmental impact. At AEMBR, we're proud to take a stand for sustainability. Our commitment goes beyond choosing the right materials; we actively contribute to reforestation efforts through our partnership with OneTreePlanted™.
Soy Wax and Deforestation: A Hidden Cost
While soy wax is a popular choice in the candle industry, often lauded for being natural and renewable, there's a significant environmental concern that's less discussed: deforestation. The demand for soy wax is partly responsible for the large-scale deforestation in many parts of the world. Vast areas of forest are cleared to make way for soy plantations, contributing to habitat loss, biodiversity reduction, and increased carbon emissions.
Choosing Coconut Apricot Wax: A Step Towards Sustainability
In our quest to create not just luxurious but also eco-friendly candles, AEMBR has chosen to use coconut apricot wax. This wax is widely recognized as one of the most sustainable and luxurious waxes in the world. Here's why:
Sustainability: Coconut apricot wax is sourced in a way that doesn't contribute to deforestation. Coconut trees are a high-yield crop, which means they can produce a significant amount of product annually without requiring extensive land clearing.
Luxury and Quality: This wax is celebrated for its smooth texture, excellent fragrance-holding capabilities, and clean burn. This makes it an ideal choice for crafting the high-quality candles AEMBR is known for.
Made in the USA: Our coconut apricot wax is made right here in the USA, ensuring quality and reducing the carbon footprint associated with long-distance transportation.
Planting Trees with Every Purchase
But we don't stop at just using sustainable wax. For every candle sold, AEMBR plants a tree in partnership with OneTreePlanted™. This initiative allows us to directly contribute to reforestation efforts and combat the broader issue of deforestation — a problem exacerbated by the soy candle market.
By planting a tree for every candle purchased, we’re not only giving back to the planet but also supporting a cycle of renewal. Trees are vital for a healthy environment; they clean our air, create habitats for biodiversity, and provide sustainable livelihoods for people around the world.
Join Us in Making a Difference
Every AEMBR candle you purchase does more than fill your space with exquisite fragrance; it also becomes a part of a larger movement towards a more sustainable and environmentally conscious lifestyle. Together, we can make a difference, one candle — and one tree — at a time.
