At Kalamazoo Candle Company, we care about the impact we have on our environment, and we make a point to seek out sustainability opportunities wherever possible. We proudly pour our candles into containers that are recyclable ( and reusable!), and we've been thinking for some time about developing a system to reuse the wood lids that top off each of our 10oz jar candles.
That said, we're excited to announce our new Wood Lid Return Program!
Bring your wood lids to any of our participating retail partners (find participating stores here).
Bring your wood lids directly to our shop in downtown Kalamazoo (get directions here).
Are you outside the Kalamazoo area? If you're loving our candles from afar, Options 1 & 2 probably aren't so convenient. In that case, feel free to pop your wood lids in an envelope/box & ship 'em our way. Contact us for more info on the return process.
For each wood lid that makes its way back to Kalamazoo Candle Company, we will donate $0.25 to Open Roads, a local organization whose mission is to teach Kalamazoo youth bike mechanic skills and social skills to better prepare them for their future. In 2016 alone, Open Roads welcomed 450 students into their programs, inspiring social skills & behaviors to help them better navigate life at home, in school, and in their neighborhoods.
