Green Your Halloween -- Candles

Light with soy candles It's time for ghosts, witches, and jack-o'-lanterns. This week we'll provide tips for a greener Halloween.

Tip # 4: Set a Sustainable Mood

Create a spooky mood and save power by turning off the lights and enjoying the glow of the jack-o'-lantern. Conventional candles are made from petroleum-based paraffin wax, so light your (local, organic) pumpkin with soy candles. Soy is a renewable resource that produces less soot than paraffin, so the little ghouls and goblins can breathe easier. 

Browse the selection of soy candles at Bluewick or Way Out Wax.
