Green Your Holidays: Candles

Menorah Whether you're celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or all of them, this week's tips will help you lessen your impact while you increase your joy.

Tip #3: Don't Get Burned by Petroleum

If you're preparing to light a menorah tonight or stocking up on candles for Kwanzaa later this month, look for eco-friendly candles made from soy or beeswax instead of petroleum-derived paraffin. For better air quality, opt for unscented varieties. Keep wicks short to get more life out of your candles.

Tell us: What are your favorite kind of candles to use during the holidays?
