Entrepreneur: Chinedu Ume-Ezeoke
Business: Green Light
Green Light Candles features unscented, hand-poured, environmentally friendly, all natural candles. They are made from 100% soy wax with flat braided cotton, paper wicks and recyclable glass containers.
A Green Light Candle.
Soy wax makes a great candle because it burns cooler, more uniformly, and can last up to 50% longer than traditional paraffin wax candles. Soy wax is also a clean burning wax, with little to no petro-soot or other harmful emissions, so there's no black ring of soot around the top of the candle container and allergies are seldom triggered.
