Our future is now being threatened by climate change, global warming trends, the resulting poor quality of air and water and the depletion of our natural resources.

Sparta Country Candles has been committed to adopting environmentally friendly strategies geared toward recycling, reducing energy usage and waste.

Environmental initiatives at our store front:

  • Sparta Country Candles was the first candle maker to develop a reusable container that can be used multiple times with candle refills – saving both money and the environment
  • Use of soy chips for shipping – which are environmentally friendly and stop the need for bubble wrap–instead of foam chips
  • Structured maintenance program on all vehicles to ensure they are safe and running as efficiently as possible
  • Decrease store lighting in the summer
