Love the smell of this candle and everytime someone walked in my house they would ask what's that smell it's amazing

A fragrance so delicious you could eat it! That's what we like to hear. ;)
Kalamazoo Candle STILL GREAT

We have been purchasing these candles for the last 5 - 6 years and they have always been of the highest quality and they are still the great candles. We would recommend for anyone.

Jack, thanks so much for your support since day 1! It's people like you who have made us into what we are today. :)

I love Kalamazoo. I love this company. The store itself is great and you can even make your own! I love that the products are as natural as can be and the company is focused on sustainability. I love the scents! Balsam & Cedar is my all time favorite. I ordered three this holiday season online. (Not my first purchase from them) I received them in ONE day. Sadly, one of the glass jars was broken en route. I messaged them and they responded immediately. Apologized and sent me a new one! Best customer service ever! I am not affiliated with them, they did not give me anything to write this. I am just one happy customer :)

Holy smokes, Erica, you just BLEW us away with that review! Thank you so much for sharing your love for Kalamazoo Candle Company; we love to hear how we're doing and appreciate it so much! :)

Love the candles! Arrived quickly and when I called to say one broke in shipping I was greeted with a friendly voice on the phone and they shipped me a replacement right away! Will definitely continue to use Kalamazoo Candle! This was also a fundraiser for my nephew's sailing team!!

We're happy to be able to replace your broken candle and to hear that you enjoy them! Thank you for supporting your nephew's fundraiser, too! :)

Today is Arbor Day, and we're celebrating trees. 

We all know trees are important, but just  how important?  Let's start with some stats:

  • A young, healthy tree provides a net cooling effect equivalent to 10 room-size air conditioners running for 20 hours per day.
  • If you plant a tree on the west side of your home, your energy bills should decrease 3% in just 5 years.  (Those savings will grow to nearly 12% in just 15 years!)
    Property Value
    • Landscaping, especially with trees, can increase your home's value by up to 20%. 
    • Trees can stimulate economic development.  Commercial retail areas with trees are more attractive to shoppers, apartments rent more quickly and retain tenants for longer, 
      Clean Air
      • One acre of forest absorbs enough carbon dioxide and puts out enough oxygen to meet the annual needs of 18 people.
      • Trees can reduce stress significantly in as little as 5 minutes.  A Texas A&M study found that visual exposure to trees yielded positive changes in blood pressure and muscle tension.

        Okay, so trees are important.

        Let's talk about how we can take good care of them.  We've partnered with Western Michigan University* to compile a list of ways to love the trees around you.   

        1. Use tree-free paper products
         (made from more sustainable materials, like bamboo, sugarcane, hemp, etc.)
        • Opt for tree-free disposable plates, napkins, and flatware.  
          We love this bundle from Brandless: all items are biodegradable, and most are tree-free (made from sugarcane & bamboo!).

        • TreeZero and True Green Paper also offer some awesome tree-free paper products made from sugarcane husk and bamboo grass. 
        2. Consider switching to reusable products
        • Instead of paper towels, choose microfiber cleaning cloths, cotton napkins, reusable beeswax wraps, pop-up sponges, etc.  (For more ideas, see this list of  12 sustainable alternatives to paper towels from Huffington Post).
        • Pistachio Project has some great ideas for other reusable paper-free products you can use around the house, from coffee filters to handkerchiefs to cloth diapers to reusable paper towels.  Check out their list here.  
          3. Cut down on paper usage
          • Opt for electronic account management & e-statements whenever possible. 
            Bonus: many financial institutions offer incentives for online banking!
            • If you do have to print physical copies, use recycled paper.
            4. Plant trees
            • Not all thumbs are green; we know this well.  Luckily, the Arbor Day Foundation has tons of resources for  proper tree care, from selecting and planting a tree to maintaining healthy, mature trees.
