Birthed By Earth
Tell us about your business.Birthed By Earth was founded by vegan entrepreneur, animal lover, and self-proclaimed tree hugger Stacee Matheson. As a discerning consumer, always on the prowl for cruelty-free and sustainable products, Stacee decided it was her turn to contribute to the movements she had become so passionate about. Candle making became her means to accomplish that... dedicated to quality, she sought out the finest ingredients and through much trial and error, developed the high quality line of candles offered by Birthed By Earth today. All candles are held to the highest standards and are carefully handcrafted in small batches right here in the USA, and all ingredients/components have been carefully researched to ensure they have not been tested on animals and do not contain animal ingredients or by-products.
What makes your business stand out?We work really hard to do the right thing on all fronts... for our customers, for animals, for the environment, and for the U.S. economy. These efforts include... Using highly renewable soy wax that is American made -- Using only pure essential oils to scent our candles, and never dyes or synthetic fragrances -- Using only wicks made from natural material -- Using only American made containers -- Packaging our products using recycled and biodegradable materials -- Ensuring that our ingredients/components have not been tested on animals and do not contain animal ingredients or by-products -- By donating 10% of profits to farm animal sanctuaries.
