Ethical Candles

One of the great things about this time of year is the fact that you can light candles to add mood to your home. If you are uncomfortable about buying those blocks of cheap tea-lights from major retailers, you might like to think about ethical ones.

How about hand-made soy wax tea lights which are non-toxic, GM-Free and don’t use materials from deforested rainforests?

Most ‘normal’ candles are made using paraffin, a by-product of crude oil, and many people are concerned about the environmental impact of oil based processes and products. Soy wax, on the other hand, is made from soy beans - a renewable resource.

HapiBean, based in Watford, is offering a selection of ethical tea-lights which you can order online. Have a look at where you will also find an interesting section of the comparison between paraffin and soy wax.

Might be just the thing for your ethical seasonal decorations.
