Ethics and Sustainability

Nox & Vesta firmly believes in giving back to our community and to our planet. It is our promise to you that we do everything we can to always be as ethical and sustainable as possible. 

We donate a portion of our proceeds to Friends of the Earth, The Wetlands Initiative, Rainforest Trust, Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, and Safehouse Denver. With an employee incentive program, we encourage volunteer work to give back to our local and global communities.

We ensure that all our employees receive a livable wage, as we believe that all labor is deserving of fair compensation, and no one working for a living should struggle in poverty. 

We work hard to provide a sustainably made yet luxuriously performing product.  Our commitment to sustainability is present in all aspects of our design and production. 

We prioritize sustainability with our candles, and with our proprietary blend of renewable coconut wax and apricot wax, our candles provide a safer and cleaner burn. Additionally, our wooden wicks are handcrafted in the USA and are FSC certified. 

We ensure that all our candle materials are sourced sustainably and ethically. Everything that we ship to you is 100% recyclable. Our glass vessels and our shipping materials are all recyclable and many components are derived from recycled materials. Everything from the cardboard box your candles arrive in, to the tissue paper used to insulate and protect your candles in transit, are all recyclable. 

We promise to always be paraffin-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, and cruelty-free.
