To Candescent Books, sustainability is the sharing of experiences. Each book you purchase from us has lived purposely for another, provided for another, and enlightened another. Each experience is new and unique and meaningful. This is the cultivation of community: indirect and seamless. 

To Candescent Books, sustainability is thoughtful. Each candle you purchase from us is clean-burning and biodegradable. The vessels that hold them are recyclable and up-cyclable. The fragrances within the wax you experience are free of parabens, phthalates, carcinogens, mutagens, gluten, cruelty, and animal products. The wooden wicks are sourced from mills certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Refills are available for select candles.

This thoughtfulness extends to our packing materials: biodegradable packing peanuts, crinkle paper, and/or honeycomb packing paper to prepare your packages. All sealed with paper packing tape to reduce plastic usage. 

We try our best to be conscious of our materials, processes, and operations in order to provide guilt-free products and experiences. We adjust where we can, when we can.
