The Love Candle Story: Spreading Love & Supporting Hope
Stand in a room with eight women, one of them will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
Yes, our lane is creating accessible, clean, plant-based candles for air pollutant-free enjoyment. So how did we become affiliated with the likes of this nonprofit powerhouse for breast cancer prevention?
Each year, BCPP hosts an annual fundraising event, the Mount Tamalpais Peak Hike for Prevention, adjacent to the Golden Gate Bridge. For the 2012 hike, we donated candles to be included in the swag bags for participants. And, over a decade later, we have proudly donated over 2,500 candles to their hikes, which are now held nationwide in Texas, Rhode Island, and Utah.
Breast Cancer Prevention Partners is a diverse collective with a two-fold objective: “...to save lives and prevent the disease before it starts.”
Succinct and simple, yet far from easy. For 30 years, BCPP has been positioned at the forefront of public advocacy, tackling science-based policy development and awareness of environmental exposure.
In short, they’re the muscle behind a litany of successful campaigns to reduce the presence of known carcinogenic agents in cosmetics, food, food packaging, and more.
As such, BCPP has worked directly with large corporations to phase out and, ultimately, eliminate toxins from their products. By lobbying the Center for Disease Control, the Environmental Health Budget has been expanded by 300%, thanks to their efforts. And, with the publication of 33 major studies to date, BCPP has become a true leader in unwavering activism against the proliferation of this preventable disease.
So how can you help? Easy: take a hike!

The LOVE (candle) story continues...
So, to celebrate our love story alongside everyone else, we decided Valentine’s Day is the perfect season for our limited-release LOVE candle collection.
As with all of our products, this bright and fruity Fig Grapefruit collection is paraffin-free and made with responsibly-sourced ingredients. But we’re not just stopping at making safe, eco-conscious, and affordable candles…
We have pledged 50¢ for every tin and $1 for every frosted glass candle sold from the Love candle collection to the BCPP.
And, over the last four years of this extra special-release, we are honored to have been able to donate over $14,000.
Want to support this cause with a LOVE candle?
Grateful to the invaluable work of BCPP, we’re glad our lanes intersected all that time ago in San Francisco. Spreading love and supporting hope, one candle at a time - that’s GoodLight.
