With Christmas & New Year’s fastly approaching us, I wanted to take a moment to discuss a project that offers a collection of beautifully scented home candles all while providing solar energy to under-resourced countries globally via the support of key philanthropic organizations including UNICEF. The “Starling Project” candles are soy-based and are hand-poured in Brooklyn, NY. They feature American glass and a cotton wick. They are also filled with all-natural essential oils and once lit, each candle burns for approximately 60 hours! The “Starling Project” supports U.S. businesses as all their candles are American Made. All global ingredients found within each candle are sourced from cruelty-free vendors in keeping with their commitment to protecting human rights. These modern, minimalistic and monochromatic in design candles are a great décor option for your home or office. They offer four amazing curated scents: Juniper + Saffron, Vanilla + Hemlock, Orange Flower + Amber and Currant + Rosewood. Each candle retails for $55, a price that many will think is a tad expensive, but the quality of this long-lasting candle more than makes up for it. In addition, with the purchase of each candle, you will have a hand in helping others less fortunate than you.
MORE ABOUT THE STARLING PROJECT:
“The Starling Project provides development of solar power systems in countries such as Chad by supporting organizations like UNICEF through the sale of hand-poured candles made in Brooklyn, NY. The World Energy Outlook 2014 shows nearly 1.3 billion people are without access to electricity, and more than 620 million people in sub-Saharan Africa (two-thirds of the population) live without electricity. We believe all people have a right to a safe, healthy life. Sustainable, long-term solar power provides light, safety, health, education and so much more”
