Unity Park Soy Candle
Unity Park Soy Candle
All of the proceeds of this candle benefit Unity Park!
Unity Park Advisory Council is an all-volunteer community organization in Logan Square that plans, funds and staffs events at Unity Park, 2636 N Kimball. The name UNITY was chosen for the park over 30 years ago by the group of neighbors who had united to fight for the playground and who would later form the Unity Park Advisory Council.
Events at Unity Park have always been free and accessible to all since the park opened in June 1987. Your purchase of the UNITY Candle will help Unity Park Advisory Council continue its goal to provide fun, free, family-friendly programming that is open to all.
All of Milton and Margie’s Soy Wax Candles are hand-poured in small batches. They are made from 100% pure soy wax, cotton wicks, and a blend of fine soy-based oils.
grass + wild flowers
Combining the green, summery scents of grass and wildflowers, this fragrance makes the room smell like a meadow in bloom.
THE CONTAINER'S STORY
This hand-poured soy wax candle is in a reused can, meaning that no materials, energy, or waste goes into producing the container. I gather the cans from my own kitchen; friends, family, and customers; and a generous Chicago recycling center. I clean each one, transforming them from trash into a shiny, new candle holder.
To represent Unity Park, the reused can is hand painted in bold rainbow colors. Because soy wax washes out easily with soap and hot water, you can reuse the rainbow can as a pen holder, planter, or utensil holder at your next barbecue.
Weight: 15.2 oz.
Burn Time: ~120 hours
ABOUT SOY WAX
Soy wax is a natural, renewable alternative to traditional paraffin wax, which is made with coal or the same petroleum used to make plastic and motor oil. Because it is made from soy beans, soy wax is a sustainable resource that burns clean with none of the petrol-carbon soot that blackens walls, ceilings, and furniture. Beyond the environmental benefits, soy wax also burns longer than other kinds of wax, and soy candles boast a more powerful scent-throw to fill your room.
