Who We Are, What We Believe

Sustainability. Community. Creativity. 

We live these principles at every stage of the candle making process. They’re not just what we do; they’re who we are.

From wax to wick to box and beyond, sustainability is the centerpiece of our operations. Our candles are soy, our wicks, cotton–both of which are renewable resources. What’s more, our packaging is 100% post-consumer and biodegradable. Why? Because sustainability is more than hugging trees.

And we’re not just here for the environment; we’re here for you, too. 

You need not write alone. Once our debut line of candles has launched, Kill Your Darlings Candles will kindle your creativity and cultivate a sense of community as you write, revise, and ruminate. This, plus our dedication to local libraries, literacy organizations, independent bookstores, and writing guilds are just two of the ways we’ll soon be embodying community mindfulness. After all, the world shines through those of us in the creative community.

Creativity is, naturally, also important to us. With our forthcoming rotating family of scents and the writerly wit that accompanies them, you’ll soon see creativity is the cornerstone of our candlecraft. At Kill Your Darlings Candle Company, we venture to cast light into corners once thought lost to darkness.

This is all but a glimpse into our dedication to sustainability, community, and creativity, and we’ll have more on each of these as we get closer to making a public announcement about the opening of our preorder window. 

Now it’s your turn. What are you doing to embrace sustainability, community, and creativity in your day-to-day life? We’d love to hear from you in the comments.

Shine on and burn bright.
