Coral Reef Soy Candle - 8.5 oz Pink Grapefruit & Rosemary Scented in Clear Glass, 65+ Hours of Clean Burning

$20.00 USD

DESCRIPTION

Commonly referred to as the "tropical rainforests of the ocean", coral reefs contain about 25 percent of marine species and are renowned for their biological diversity and high productivity while covering only 0.2 percent of the world’s ocean. Coral reefs are now threatened by the increasing concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and warming ocean temperatures causing mass bleaching events. In the past 30 years, we have lost 50% of the world's corals.  

When you purchase a coral reef candle, you fund the removal of 100 pounds of CO2, reduce your carbon footprint while raising awareness about the impacts of climate change on these biodiverse marine systems. 10% of all profits from every coral reef candle go towards revitalizing, restoring, and protecting coral reefs in St. Maarten through the Reef Life Foundation. 

SCENT PROFILE

The refreshing citrus partnered with earthy and organic rosemary with a hint of a green apple makes for a beautiful and relaxing combination. Plant your seed dust cover after burning your candle completely to grow some wildflowers.

OUR 100 POUNDS COMMITMENT

4ourclimate's mission is to reduce your carbon footprint by 100 pounds for every product purchased. We stand committed in the fight against climate change by investing in third-party verified carbon-offset projects around the world that create a social-economic impact. 

1. LifeStraw: Clean Water in Kenya

This project brings safe drinking water to more than 4.5m people in Western Kenya while cutting 2.4m tonnes of CO2 emissions annually. It is one of the largest climate and safe water projects globally. Some 877,505 families use LifeStraw Family water filters to purify water in their home, rather than boiling water for drinking over open fires. The gravity-driven filters require no electricity or consumables. In particular, the project leveraged carbon finance to employ 4,000 health trainers, who helped with distribution, education, and monitoring. It was one of nine ‘lighthouse’ projects selected by the United Nations in 2012 as best practice examples of climate action.

2.The Envira Amazonia Project: A Tropical Forest Conservation Project

The Envira Amazonia Project is a payment for ecosystem services forest conservation project, otherwise known as a Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) project, protecting nearly 500,000 acres (200,000 hectares) of tropical rainforest.

The Envira Amazonia Project shall mitigate the release of more than 12.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions, while also preserving the habitat for an extraordinary amount of biodiversity and directly benefitting local communities.

Together, we can help end the climate crisis 100 pounds at a time.
