New Palm-wax Candles Are Green,
Non-toxic, Paraffin-free, and Affordable
Those bulk bags of tea lights that Americans have used for years without thought are actually usually made from petroleum-based paraffin wax, which is a by product of oil refining. According to the makers of GoodLight Candles, studies have linked the fumes emitted from paraffin candles with cancer and birth defects.
Much less expensive than beeswax and soy, palm wax is non-toxic and clean burning. The wax is derived from the non-GMO palm fruit, a rapidly renewable resource,which is also the most efficient oil-producing plant on earth, yielding 10 times more oil per acre than other crops such as soy.
The owners of GoodLight a Colorado-based company, support GreenPalm and the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, organizations pioneering sustainable farming and social responsibility in the palm industry. GoodLight’s mission is to raise the awareness of palm’s benefits while promoting the establishment of a more progressive, eco-conscious paradigm within the industry. And since they are a Contributing Member of 1% for the Planet, you can feel good knowing that a portion of your candle purchase will help fight global warming.
