This is a question you really should ask yourself every time you buy from a business and a question I definitely ask myself more and more. There is a few other questions I ask myself.
1. Who made it?
It is especially important to me that I know exactly where the material is from and who made it. I have done a lot of research on this and carefully picked my suppliers.
I also made sure to avoid big corporate companies and have chosen to support other small businesses and their owners, whilst building my own. I just feel so much better knowing a person by their name and who they are, before I give them my hard earned money.
2. What is inside?
As a proud vegan myself, it is crucial to me that my material is vegan and cruelty-free. I make sure to chose plant based products that are pet and child friendly. Basically I want to be certain nobody is harmed in the process of making these beautiful candles. They shouldn't only look good but also make you feel good about supporting the message and cause behind it all.
3. Is it sustainable?
It is no secret that our planet is suffering.
I therefore make sure all my products are handmade (by myself), using eco friendly materials and ingredients as much as possible. I also ensure to reduce wastage to and absolute minimum, by recycling and reusing my materials.
To answer your question "why?":
You know who made it and therefore know it is ethically produced.
You know what's inside and therefore know it is vegan and cruelty-free.
You know it's sustainably produced by me and therefore know it is environmental friendly.
You know you're supporting a small business and a good cause.
In short: I promise you, that here at Cataleya Creations, you can shop with a clear conscience.
