Caroline started 1502 Candle Co and her candle-making journey in 2012 by double-boiling wax on her stove and using repurposed jars and bottles as candle vessels. After giving the home-crafted candles as gifts, friends and family wanted more. Since then, 1502 has evolved but their fundamental value of environmental responsibility hasn’t. All of the materials she uses are researched and chosen intentionally, favoring ones that are recycled, recyclable, biodegradable and made in America. And the fragrance and essential oils used are exceptional in quality and phthalate-free.
To further contribute to the overall mission to fight the global climate crisis, 1502 joined the global movement 1% for the Planet and pledged to give back at least 1% of their sales to environmental nonprofits.
