Our Story

Our 100 Pounds Pledge

 Every product purchased removes 100 pounds of CO2 through our partnerships with verified carbon capture projects across the world. At 4ourclimate, we believe a climate-positive lifestyle is possible.

How It All Began

Graduating from the University of Waterloo with Honours in Environmental Studies, Kharam is super passionate about fighting climate change; the greatest threat facing humanity in the 21st century. At the same time, while pursuing his childhood dream of becoming a pilot, Kharam felt guilty for aviation's impact on the environment.

One fine day, he purchased a candle for his mom which after lighting a couple of times caused her to experience nausea and light headaches due to the burning of paraffin and other toxic chemicals. There must be a safer, healthier alternative to paraffin candles Kharam thought and if at the same time, the candles could give back to the environment, it would be a win-win!

Researching on this opportunity, Kharam met Anjali, Renish, Paras and Andrea who all shared a similar passion for the environment, healthy lifestyle and a love for candles. Thus 4ourclimate was founded.
