Earth Hour + Giveaway

Earth Hour is the single, largest, symbolic mass participation event in the world. Born out of a hope to mobilize people to take action on climate change, Earth Hour now inspires a global community of millions of people in 7,001 cities and towns across 152 countries and territories to switch lights off for an hour as a massive show of concern for the environment. Switching the lights off is a start and you can find out more information here...

When can you take part in this event? Saturday, March 23 between 8:30pm and 9:30pm in your time zone.

In honor of this event, we are hosting a giveaway sponsored by Green Leaf Candles LLC. This wonderful shop is giving away a handmade 100% beeswax candle (lead in picture) that is eco-friendly and non-toxic.

Green Leaf Candles LLC makes all natural green candles, but unlike other candle companies they also use recycled glass containers for their container candles.  They offer candles in both 40% and 99% recycled glass containers in a variety of colors. Soy, Beeswax, and Palm Wax candles are available.  Green Leaf Candles LLC uses only Natural and Eco-Friendly ingredients. 

How do you win? Monday, March 18-Monday, March 25 please leave a comment on this post with your email address answering: Are you participating in Earth Hour? and What is your favorite item from Green Leaf Candles LLC?
A winner will be randomly chosen on Tuesday, March 26 and contacted for mailing information. Good Luck!


  1. I am participating! I love the soy candles, too - partly because of the glass jars, but partly for their size!

  2. Yes! I'll participate! We need to do all we can to protect our planet! Thanks for reminding us with this awesome giveaway! I'm just being introduced to Green Leaf Candles, love the beeswax candles & bath salts, especially Lavender, my fave! ( I even soak my mini doxie in bath salts ;D ). Can't wait to become a new customer! :D

  6. Yes, my family will be participating. I love that square palm wax pillar candle. I may just have to buy that!

  7. I completely forgot about Earth Hour and thank you for the reminder! I may participate if I remember, but with just my husband and I at home and no children, we may not turn out all the lights. We are trying to focus on making real changes to our lifestyle to help reduce our footprint, but I like the symbolic movement of Earth Hour and that it's a chance to help educate children on the importance of being eco-conscious and raise general awareness.

    I also love those candles and am smitten with the Orange Palm Wax Pillar Candle! The color is beautiful!

  9. Yes - it is such a wonderful incentive and reminder to educate our little ones, that we can all do our bit and make a difference.
    I'm a beeswax candle girl and love your large rolled pillar candle ♥
