As part of a series encouraging consumers to shop from small Canadian businesses, our product team is highlighting eco-friendly candles from coast-to-coast that you can light up during Earth Hour later this month.

Switching off your lights for an hour on March 26 at 8:30 pm local time is the easiest way to participate in the Earth Hour movement. We’ve put together a list of sustainable candles that will help reduce your carbon footprint by purchasing from homegrown businesses while providing some ambiance for your evening at home in the dark at the same time.
