Amazonia Soy Candle - Rose & Sandalwood
The Rose and Sandalwood scented soy candle raises awareness about the unprecedented number of fires raging throughout the Amazonia Rainforest in Brazil in 2019 and the underlying impacts of climate change. According to the National Institute for Space Research (INPE), there were as many as 80,000 fires, the most ever recorded.
The Amazon Rainforest boosts the riches biodiversity of any ecosystem on the planet, captures most of our carbon (often referred to as the 'lungs of earth' as a result), and is home to indigenous stewards. A surge in wildfires in 2019 - largely impacted by climate change, continues to burn through the Amazon Rainforests which is creating a catastrophic 'tipping point'.
10% of proceeds from the Rose and Sandalwood scented soy candle go towards the Envira Amazonia Project, protecting nearly 500,000 acres (200,000 hectares) of tropical rainforest in partnership with Carbon Fund. The Envira Amazonia Project shall mitigate the release of more than 12.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions, while also preserving the habitat for an extraordinary amount of biodiversity and directly benefitting local communities.
The Envira Amazonia Project has achieved validation and verification to the VCS and CCBS with Triple Gold Level Distinction for the Project’s exceptional biodiversity and community benefits, along with the Project’s incorporation of climate change mitigation activities. In fact, the Envira Amazonia Project is one of the largest REDD+ projects in the world and one of only a handful of REDD+ projects to be verified to the CCBS with Triple Gold Distinction.
