Green Business Partnership adds new business

Please welcome our newest Sarasota County Green Business Partner: Bia Candle Co.

Bia Candle Co. has chosen each of its 8 fragrances for their complex olfactory compositions. Our candles are meant to perfume your home with the same sophistication and quality as you do your body. To produce a high quality product, you need high quality ingredients, artisan production and love of craft. Our fragrances are infused with essential oils and free of parabens and phthalates. Our soy wax blend is kosher, vegan and cruelty-free. Our wicks are natural and do not contain metal. Extensive research and testing are done for every new scent. Positive energy and calming music are present while we hand-pour in small batches to deliver fresh candles.

As a green business partner, Bia Candle Co. is having a positive impact on our community. The company is striving to infuse sustainable practices into its operations. Carefully researching and sourcing sustainable packaging, the company ensures that their packaging is made from recycled content and is both reusable and recyclable. They strive to reduce packaging and not offer excess candle boxes. In addition to carefully sourcing products, Bia Candle Co. look to reduce waste in their operations. By reusing shipping boxes, donating used pallets, and recycling packaging films, they are working to reduce all waste generated.

Owner Bia believes, “It’s our responsibility as a company and as individuals to care for the Earth.”
