Jen and I were recently able to go green in a whole new way – by burning locally-made soy candles from A Soyful Candle Company. (thanks Melissa!)

Soy candles are a natural alternative to paraffin candles, which are made from petroleum. Because they are biodegradable, they also produce less soot when burned. Making small tweaks in our lives, like buying soy candles, is all part of the solution.

Having a local choice like A Soyful Candle Company is just icing candles on the cake. They offer 3 sizes of container candles and a set of six tealights. We sampled a “Romance” candle, and some “Rain” tealights. They both smelled amazing, and certainly lived up to the clean, slow-burning reputation of soy candles.

The details of these candles are amazing as well. They are dye-free, hand-poured, and use a lead-free cotton wick. They contain no animal products, can be cleaned up with water, and support American farmers. Seriously, I’m going to have to go with the beans on this one — soy candles rock!

In addition to a wide range of fragrances — like sun washed linen, fig, Charleston Magnolia, or Georgia peach — they have some tasty seasonal options as well. Think about greening up your festivities this year with some Harvest Spice, Hollyberry Mistletoe, Jingle Bells, or Peppermint candles. Those all sound delicious!

Be sure to check out A Soytful Candles Company’s online store — there’s lots of good stuff in stock. Buying green is one of the best ways you can contribute to the cause, as your choice is your voice when it comes to supporting green options in the marketplace.

Thanks again to Melissa for letting us test drive these great candles!

    So, before you purchase cheap car insurance
    for young drivers make sure you have understood the coverage
    and read the policy. Some insurance companies will recommend
    that those who are considering umbrella policies increase their deductible payments on other policies as
    a means of keeping their annual costs down. Now
    the authorities alert those who still imagine in the houses
    market not to play fireplace.
