Ignite a spark of hope

Although we may be a small workshop in the Minnesota St. Croix River Valley, we are determined to have a positive and far-reaching impact

1 candle = 1 tree

Our partnership with The National Forest Foundation is starting to take root. Since 2018, we've had over 9,360 trees planted to help fight climate change, conserve wildlife habitats and ensure healthy watersheds within our US National Forests.

By purchasing a candle, you are helping to restore a US National Forest. Every candle purchased helps to re-plant a tree in a US National Forest, making a difference in our environment and providing a greener future for generations to come.

The NFF is a proud 1% For the Planet Member.

The National Forest Foundation (NFF) was chartered by Congress to work with communities and the U.S. Forest Service.

The National Forest Foundation is leading natural solutions to climate change through large-scale reforestation on public lands.

Let's also Clean the seas

The largest cleanup in history.

In addition to planting a tree for every candle we make, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Begonia & Bench candle is provided as a donation to the Ocean Cleanup.

Ocean Cleanup is an international organization that is dedicated to reducing the amount of plastic and other debris in the global ocean. The organization was founded in 2013 by Boyan Slat, who at the time was only 18 years old.
