Why we support Pauper’s Candle Company because we are Pauper’s Candle Company.
What does Sustainability mean anyway? The definition of Sustainability is wide. It basically means:
- Living a life of dignity in harmony with nature.
- Renewing resources at a rate equal to or greater than the rate at which they are consumed.
- Living within the resources of the planet without damaging the environment now or in the future.
When I started making candles in 2003, I did not start my business, Pauper’s Candle Company, thinking that I wanted to make candles that were sustainable. I am not sure the term was really used then. But as I started to learn more about the products I was using and could use, I started to make conscience efforts to use products that were renewable, recyclable, and made in the US. This was the beginning of Pauper’s being sustainable without knowing it.
