Growing a human has only been one of several projects on which I’ve been working these past few months. I’m very excited to announce the impending launch of my own small business in the fall!
Ferri Light Candles is a company based on quality, sustainability, and community. Candles have always been a big comfort item for me, and I have spent the past few months teaching myself the art of candle making in the hopes of sharing this love!
My candles are 100% plant-based soy, sustainable, renewable, and cruelty free. They are in recycled glass containers or steel tins and contain lead and zinc free wicks. My supplier ships items to me with a carbon neutral option, a concept used by companies in that they calculate the amount of CO2 released by shipping and purchase credits (projects that prevent CO2 emissions or remove it from the atmosphere) to offset 100% of those emissions.
I also believe in giving back and am passionate about watching lights shine both literally and figuratively in this world. The brightest lights are those of children, and among the many things in life they need to get a good start is a quality education. Due to the underfunding of public schools, most particularly in low-income communities, too many teachers currently pay out of pocket for supplies they need to run their classrooms. That is why 10% of every candle purchase will go toward the purchase of school supplies for classrooms in need in Arizona.
I am hosting an open house on Sunday, July 28th from 1-4pm to launch the first batch of my candles and I invite each of you to come check them out! I’ll then be making more and taking orders throughout August before taking time off in September, October, and November to focus on my baby girl before officially launching on November 29, Black Friday.
Product list and pictures to come! In the meantime, if you’re interested in swinging by during my open house, please message me for my address and mark your calendars for July 28th!
