Exceptional Ingredients for a Better Future
At Sweetheart Scents, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, including our choice of ingredients. We proudly embrace soy wax as a sustainable alternative to paraffin, supporting American farmers and reducing our reliance on non-renewable resources. In addition, our commitment to sustainability extends to our wicks, where we opt for hemp instead of cotton. Hemp requires less land, resists insects naturally, and eliminates the need for harmful pesticides. We prioritize partnerships with fragrance manufacturers who share our environmental values, ensuring that our scents are delivered with minimal impact. Rest assured, our candles are free from harmful substances, providing you with a safe and sustainable choice. By choosing Sweetheart Scents, you actively contribute to a brighter, greener future through our sustainable ingredients.
Packaging with Purpose
Maximizing Impact with Minimal Waste
At Sweetheart Scents, we believe in the power of packaging to make a positive impact on our planet. That's why we are dedicated to minimizing waste and preserving nature through our sustainable packaging practices. We choose organic hemp twine for wrapping our products, offering an eco-friendly alternative that reduces our reliance on synthetic materials. Our unbleached wax paper, crafted from FSC-certified unbleached paper, ensures that our packaging is both sustainable and free from harmful chemicals. Additionally, we use kraft cardboard inserts for shipping, providing protection while minimizing waste. To further enhance our commitment to sustainability, we have also incorporated kraft water-activated tape into our packaging process. This tape is not only non-toxic but also features a soy-based ink, making it a more environmentally conscious choice. By making these conscious choices throughout our packaging, we strive to create a cleaner, greener world, one package at a time.
Balancing our Footprint, Pioneering Change
Sweetheart Scents understands the importance of addressing our carbon footprint. We take proactive measures to minimize our impact on the environment, implementing energy-efficient practices and emission reduction strategies throughout our production and supply chain. Through diligent tracking and analysis, we account for our emissions. To ensure a harmonious balance, we annually offset our remaining emissions by partnering with reputable carbon offset programs, including Plant With Purpose and other trusted initiatives. These programs support impactful projects such as reforestation and renewable energy, empowering us to pave the way towards a sustainable future for generations to come.
We are proud to collaborate with Plant With Purpose, an organization dedicated to reforestation and sustainable development, to help us achieve our carbon neutrality goals. For every refill sold, including those in our Personalized Jar Kits, we pledge to have a tree planted through Plant With Purpose's impactful programs.
Did you know that soy candles produce only 7-8 grams of carbon dioxide per hour they're burned, which is significantly less than paraffin candles? By planting trees, we're able to offset the carbon emissions generated by our candles. A full-grown tree removes (on average) 48 metric tons of carbon from the air each year, replacing it with oxygen.
Together, through our partnerships with various carbon offset programs, including Plant With Purpose, we actively contribute to a greener future, support reforestation efforts, and work towards a sustainable world. Join us in this collective effort and experience the joy of knowing that your candle purchase creates a ripple effect of positive change.
Reducing Environmental Impact in Every Delivery
At Sweetheart Scents, we prioritize sustainable shipping practices to ensure that our commitment to the environment extends beyond our products. When it comes to delivering your orders, we carefully select eco-friendly options that minimize our carbon footprint and contribute to the preservation of our planet. To package your orders, we utilize USPS priority mail boxes that are made from 98% recycled content. These boxes meet the stringent certification standards of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and the Forest Stewardship Council, ensuring that the paper used is sourced responsibly from sustainably managed forests. By choosing these eco-friendly shipping materials, we actively reduce waste and promote the conservation of natural resources.
Balancing our Footprint, Pioneering Change
At Sweetheart Scents, we believe in the importance of giving back to the environment that inspires us.
