All of our products are made with 100% soy wax, which means they are free of toxins and pollutants. Since soy wax is made from soybeans, they are a renewable source and biodegradable. Soy wax candles also burn longer due to them having a higher melting point.
Our glass vessels can be hand washed and recycled, which decreases the carbon footprint. Please make sure you abide by the appropriate channels of recycling glass in your county.
The paper bags that we use at farmers markets are 100% recyclable.
The brown paper that we use to pack our orders is 100% recyclable.
Our tissue paper, stickers, and packing tape are from NoIssue - a company whose number one priority is eco-friendly packaging and is 100% recyclable. For every order we make through them, NoIssue plants a tree in support of global reforestation. You can read more about the eco-friendly packing tape we use here.
In July of 2021, we added a "reduce packaging" option to our check-out process. This ensures the use of fewer candle boxes. Instead, we will ship your candle(s) wrapped in NoIssue tissue paper with a sticker to hold it in place.
Some of our candles include wooden wicks. These wicks are natural, sustainable, eco-friendly, created in the U.S., and are sourced from forests approved by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). This means that they come from forests that are managed responsibly and provide benefits socially, environmentally, and economically. FSC approved wood does not contain hazardous chemicals that are often used to control weeds. You can read more about their mission here.
At The Curious Fox, we continue to conduct extensive research to find other alternatives to reduce waste and abide by our duty to produce sustainable products.
