Zented Candle Co.’s Movement Towards A Sustainable Brand
Here at Zented Candle Co. we strive to ensure that our products and shipping practices are as earth-friendly as possible to the best of our abilities. In a world that relies primarily upon web purchases, we have made it our highest priority to source materials from earth-minded and conscientious suppliers to maintain sustainability. With that being said, please find the growing list of eco-friendly acts that Zented Candle Co. is currently partaking in:
Our Wax: The wax used to make Zented Candle Co. candles is an all-natural 100% soy wax that is produced from U.S. grown soybeans. Due to the nature of soybeans, soy wax is considered to be the most sustainable candle wax due to the soybeans’ quick crop regeneration. In addition, our soy wax is clean-burning, biodegradable, and vegan-friendly.
Our Wooden Wicks: Our natural crackling wooden wicks are both eco-friendly and clean burning. Our wooden wicks are made with FSC certified wood and are USA made.
Our Cotton Wicks: Our signature cotton wicks are lead and zinc free, made from natural cotton and paper threads that are woven together into a tight braid and coated with soy wax to hold its form. No paraffin, toxins, or oil-based products are utilized to treat the wick.
Our Fragrances: All of our fragrance oils are free from carcinogens, reproductive toxins, phthalates, and other potentially hazardous chemicals often found in store-bought fragrance oils.
Our Vessels: The vessels used for Zented Candle Co. candles are made with USA made glass or metal tins. Our amber glass vessels with lids and our metal tin vessels are reusable and recyclable and thus we encourage you to upcycle your vessels once the wax is no longer of use. A video on how to remove the soy wax/wicks and upcycle your candle vessels can be found here.
Our 2 Ounce / 4 Ounce Wax Melts: In effort to become a more sustainable brand, we offer our wax melts in a Kraft paper pouch that is not only recyclable, but can be reused at a later time due to the self-sealing zipper.
Our Labels: The Zented Candle Co. labels are made from 100% recyclable Kraft paper and a recyclable adhesive.
Our Packaging; Brown Burlap Bags: Our signature collection candles are packaged in reusable burlap drawstring bags. The burlap bags are entirely hand- printed, made with high-quality, eco-friendly linen material that can be recycled or reused for later use.
Our Packaging; Matte-Black Boxes: Our Limited Edition candles are packaged in matte-black boxes. The boxes are made with high-quality, Kraft paper that can be recycled or repurposed for later use.
Our Shipping Boxes: At Zented Candle Co. we ship our candles in 100% recyclable cardboard boxes. We often repurpose shipment boxes received in supplier orders to ship our products.
*Note On Packing Slips: Packing slips will no longer be sent with each order in order to eliminate unnecessary waste. Packing slips are available upon request and will be sent via electronic correspondence.
Our Packing Peanuts/Packing Paper: In order to ensure a safe delivery, here at Zented Candle Co. we reuse/recycle packing peanuts and packing paper received from suppliers. All packing peanuts are 100% biodegradable (A video demonstrating the breakdown of our packing peanuts can be found here.) The packing paper utilized in orders is made of 100% recycled paper.
Our Bubble Wrap: With the same premise as our packing peanuts, our bubble wrap is utilized to ensure a safe delivery. Our bubble wrap is reused/recycled from the previous supplier shipments. In the event that we run out of bubble wrap from the previous shipments, we do purchase our own bubble wrap. With that being said, we ask that you reuse/recycle the bubble wrap received in your order.
Our Packaging Tape: Our custom packaging tape is made from 100% recycled paper that is both eco-friendly and recyclable. Therefore, both the shipping box and packaging tape can be recycled together.
Our Marketing Materials: Our Zented Candle Co. business card and candle care instructions are made with recycled paper. Any additional flyers regarding Zented Candle Co. marketing will be made with recycled paper as well.
