Solar Powered!

Sunbeam Candles runs on a 3,520W solar photovoltaic system. This system generates roughly 3,750 kWh per year of pollution-free electricity. Any additional power required we obtain from suppliers producing 100% renewable energy (from wind, hydro-power and biomass energy), so all the energy we use at Sunbeam is renewable--guaranteed.

About us

Carbon Neutral Shipping

We ship all packages "carbon neutral" through UPS in an effort to offset the climatic impact of delivering our packages. With this program UPS invests in reforestation and other projects that reduce the carbon level in the atmosphere and base their investments on how much carbon is actually released in the delivery process for each shipment we send. This essentially offsets the environmental impact of shipping with Sunbeam Candles. Visit page/ups/ to learn more. At Sunbeam Candles, we strive to be as green and clean as possible in our everyday business.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

We reuse and recycle all of our leftover wax from production, and fill only one bag per week of garbage. We also recycle all cardboard, plastic, plastic bags, and paper waste. Our paper products are 100% post-consumer waste and chlorine free, and we use recycled office paper for printing in the office. We love to carpool--it saves gas and money, and helps us feel connected too. We also compost all food waste from the shop. The compost is used to grow food and nourish flowers in the gardens around the candle shop.


Working for Harmony--The Bees!

Honeybees are essential not only for the livelihoods of beekeepers and beeswax candle makers, but also for our food systems! The importance of honeybees to our global food system is becoming wider known, better understood, and more deeply investigated as colony collapse has become more prevalent over recent years. Sunbeam Candles has recently experienced first-hand the effects that diminishing hive health has had on beeswax cost and supply. We are proud to support the Pollinator Partnership, an organization that partners with many groups to educate, inform, research, and take action on the health of honeybee hives. Their mission is to promote and revitalize the future of these vital insects and educate the public as to how critical they are for our global food supply (for more on the Pollinator Partnership visit )

Working for Peace--We Give Back!

Sunbeam Candles contributes annually to a variety of organizations all working towards creating equality in the realms of health care, housing, social services, and political & social justice. Currently, we support Doctors Without Borders, Ithaca Welcomes Refugees and Love Knows No Bounds. Please visit our Web site to learn more about these organizations and the amazing work they are manifesting in the world. We are proud to support these organizations.

We love serving you with the highest quality candles at the least cost to Mother Earth!

Beeswax is one of Mother Nature's many special gifts. It releases a naturally sweet, honeylike aroma and possesses transformative, air-cleansing qualities, emitting negative ions when burned. Negative ions produced from beeswax draw out toxins, dust, pollen, mold and mildew from the air helping you to breathe easier. Burning beeswax candles can be beneficial to those typically sensitive to environmental pollutants.

When used for fuel, beeswax burns longer than any other wax. It is nature's most versatile wax, with many uses beyond candles including for balms, lotions, ointments, soaps, cosmetics, grooming, wood finish and sealer, as well as in arts and crafts--including painting, sculpture, sewing, batik, and metalworking-- and sports such as archery!

At Sunbeam Candles, we only use beeswax harvested in the United States, working with local and regional beekeepers as frequently as possible.
