LOHN Candles | $39
Description

Taking inspiration from the road less travelled, LOHN creates scents designed to transport you to another time and place. Believing that scent is part of our personal journey, LOHN candles and perfume create a sensory experience that are designed to remind us of moments in time. In the ancient world, trade routes developed in part around the pursuit of perfume ingredients like amber, tea and spices. Vic and Kat, the Toronto-based duo behind LOHN imagined the scents of the mountains, seas, forests and fields along that journey. With scent profiles that are truly swoon-worthy and unlike any candle brand I’ve ever smelled, LOHN has perfected the art of blending delicate fragrances that instantly transported me to the lush places I had visited. Not only do they sell perfumes and candles, they also own a custom scent blending studio in Toronto!

How They're Sustainable

LOHN’s candles are hand-poured by founders Vic and Kat in Toronto, made with clean scents and use sustainable coconut and soy wax. Their packaging is recyclable and they’ve collaborated with a local artist on their gorgeous candle box art. Wicks are non-toxic, and every candle is vegan, paraben-free, phthalate-free, cruelty-free, and non-toxic. It’s clear that Vic and Kat know exactly what they’re doing when it comes to blending scents, as each candle is expertly layered with notes that compliment and intrigue the senses.

Ethel Studio Pillow | FORAGE15  – 15% off
Description

These gorgeous meditation pillows will take your daily practice to the next level, with their cushiony filling and beautiful covers. With an interior lining that is filled with buckwheat hulls, you can add or subtract to the filling to create your own personal level of comfort. These meditation pillows are completely unique, with no two being alike, as each cushion is made from a unique combination of rescued fabrics, shades and geometry. Conveniently, the outer shell can be unzipped for hand-washing, and also has a side handle for easy carrying. These make great gifts for yogis, new moms, or anyone who wants to add some textual interest to their living spaces.

How They're Sustainable

Made in Minnesota, these cushions are called Zero-Waste Meditation Pillows because of their truly zero-waste design and creation process. Maggie, the founder of Ethel Studio is on a mission to eliminate global textile waste, and to do so, she sources all of her fabrics from scraps, swatches and damaged garments. She sources what she can, naturally dyes some of the salvageable fabrics, and uses the pieces to create stunning pillow covers, with a design that is a modern take on the traditional quilt. Any pieces that are too small to be sewed onto the cover are used for pillow fill or made into paper! What’s even better is that Ethel Studio provides a truly closed-loop process, encouraging customers to send their cushions back if they need something fixed. Mending services are available anytime throughout the product’s lifetime. From every purchase, Ethel Studio is donating 10% of sales to the Minnesota Indian Women’s Resource Center.

Mala the Brand Candles | FORAGE10 -10% off
Description

A quickly-growing sustainable candle brand based out of Vancouver, Canada, Mala the Brand has swoon-worthy scents that are unique and so different – Cereal, Silk, Milk and Sugar?! We love this BIPOC-owned brand (a one-woman show!) that hand-pours their candles in small-batches. Their ingredients include natural soy wax, wooden wicks (the coziest!) and lead-free cotton wicks, high-quality essential oils and phthalate-free fragrance blends. Their candles instantly uplift and relax, for the most rejuvenating at-home spa feels.

How They're Sustainable

Mala the Brand uses only non-toxic scents in their candles to ensure no chemicals are sent out into the air when burned. Their wicks are clean, and their natural soy is a much better ingredient than the leading candle wax material – paraffin. Mala also plants a tree for every candle purchased, through their partnership with Tree Era and Trees for the future. They’ve planted over 13,700 trees so far, helping to improve the environment and neutralize their own emissions. They also have a local “empties” drop off program, creating in part, a circular model that aims to reduce as much waste as possible.
