Perfect for an evening of socializing out on the deck or an intimate meal at a table for two, GoodLight candles keep the mood bright and the air clean and are now available both online and in stores nationwide.
Paraffin versus Palm Wax
While they may look great on the tables of your favorite restaurant, bathing you and your friends in a soft glow, candles made from paraffin wax have a rather dirty secret. You may have finally cut down on the sweets and upped the veggie intake, but wouldn’t you know, the paraffin candle next to your beet salad is quietly giving off the kind of toxins that you’d normally associate with a diesel truck. Recent studies have actually linked the chemicals found in paraffin candle fumes with cancer and birth defects.
GoodLight began making palm wax candles for one simple reason, to keep us all from breathing in these poisonous paraffin candle fumes. Paraffin is made from petroleum, which means that it’s both toxic and non-renewable. Palm wax, however, comes from palm fruit and is both non-toxic and renewable. This makes palm wax candles a cleaner, healthier alternative to paraffin candles. Palm wax is also less expensive than beeswax or soy wax, allowing GoodLight to offer the most affordable paraffin-free candles (by far) on the market. GoodLight candles actually cost the same as—or less than—many paraffin candles.
A Candle for Every Situation
With a candle for every need, GoodLight has you covered no matter what you want to illuminate. And remember, all GoodLight candles are 100% palm wax, non-toxic, and feature lead-free cotton wicks. These clean burning candles ensure that your only concern is which type you want to get. Use a pillar candle to light up any room of your home. Dripless taper candles are perfect for formal occasions in any dining room. Votives, the true utility candle, look great on the mantle, the deck, or nestled in a cozy nook. And tea light candles, with their recyclable tin containers, work beautifully as a team or by themselves under oil diffusers.
The GoodLight Commitment
In addition to making candles that protect their users, GoodLight is committed to protecting both the planet and the people on it. GoodLight is a member of GreenPalm and the World Wildlife Fund’s Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, whose mission is to advance sustainable palm farming practices and promote social responsibility. GoodLight is also a member of 1% for the Planet. Each year GoodLight donates 1% of all sales to organizations combating climate change.
GoodLight Natural Candles are endorsed by the Green Bride Guide and will be introduced to the hospitality industry in Fall 2010.
