Being zero-waste doesn't have to be boring. We make eco-friendly candles for eco-friendly people. We believe fragrance is personal, nostalgic, and an important part of creating an experience.
MOCO Candles was created in 2018 by Morgan Conner. With her passion for zero waste and sustainability, her background in art and design, and her love for handcrafted goods, she sought to create a product and brand of her own -- luxury home fragrances that pose no harm to the environment.
As we grow, we continue to implement new and improved sustainable business practices. We always strive to be zero waste. All waste created by our production of goods is recycled (yes, even stuff that traditionally can't be recycled) through the TerraCycle program.
All of our products are made with phthalate-free fragrances. We use 100% soy wax derived from American grown soy beans and natural cotton wicks.
We refrain from using plastic when shipping orders. We only use cardboard boxes, kraft paper, and paper tape. All of these materials are recyclable and biodegradable.
We are also carbon neutral! That means we calculate an estimate of all of the emissions that are created from shipping (based on distance traveled by shipping trucks) and we pay to offset those emissions. We are a Millenium Member of Planet, a third-party app that neutralizes our shipping emissions and funds a small portion of nature-based carbon removal options and mostly funds innovative solutions such as ocean-based removal and direct air capture.
