Our Story

Graduating from the University of Waterloo with Honours in Environmental Studies, Kharam is super passionate about fighting climate change; the greatest threat facing humanity right now. At the same time, while pursuing his childhood dream of becoming a pilot, Kharam feels guilty for every flight's carbon footprint.

One day, Kharam purchased a traditional candle for his mom which after lighting a couple of times, caused her to experience nausea and light headaches due to the burning of paraffin and other toxic chemicals. There must be a safer, healthier alternative to paraffin candles Kharam thought that are also eco-friendly.

Researching on this opportunity, Kharam met Anjali - an environmentalist, candle lover, and passionate about making real change, and Rachel - an environmentalist, entrepreneur, and a marketing expert. The three took together a mission to help clean up our climate with….soy candles! Thus, 4ourclimate was founded.

Helping cleanup our climate 100 pounds at a time.

Long-lasting candle. The difference between 100% natural soy candle and the traditional paraffin candles which emit soot, blackens the jar is profound. Candle wick and jar are of good size.
