Our candles are 100% made in the USA, and we are proud to help revive the American traditions of innovation and craftsmanship while supporting the nation’s dedicated beekeepers.
Sadly, in recent years beekeepers have been reporting significant losses in their colony count, with some reporting to have lost up to 90% of their hives. Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a real and ever-present threat to Nature's most industrious pollinator.
No one is sure what is the cause of CCD, although it is suspected that pesticides, parasites and pathogens are the most likely causes. To support our beekeepers, we therefore donate a portion of profits from our candle sales to researching the cause, and possible curing, of CCD.
