We found a better way of doing candles
For as long as people have been using candles, they’ve been creating waste. It’s a problem that has only gotten worse over time.
Most candles are mass-produced using paraffin—a byproduct of petroleum; many tumblers never get reused or recycled—contributing to landfill; and an empty candle glass tossed out today can take up to a million years to break down.
We believe there’s a better, more sustainable way of doing candles.
At Siblings, we’re on a mission to tackle throwaway culture, and our first step is doing candles right—right by the environment, right by your home, right for your health.
Candles may be a small piece of the problem, but every step towards living more sustainably matters, and every Siblings candle—with its compostable packaging, clean oils and eco-friendly coconut blend wax—makes a difference.
Our wax is a 100% natural blend of coconut and soy wax. It’s sustainable, clean-burning and better for you.
We use non-toxic, cruelty free fragrance and essential oils. They can be traced from seed to scent, and never contain harsh chemicals.
Our bags are 100% compostable and made using 99% plant-based materials. We also maintain a carbon neutral footprint.
At Siblings, we believe that thoughtfulness is the key to a healthier home and planet. When you buy a Siblings candle, you can be sure that we have carefully considered the ways our products affect the environment and how they will impact your home. Here are our promises to you —
Our brand will always seek to have the smallest footprint possible. Our packaging is lightweight and compostable. Our candle wax and scents are clean and toxic free. And we only work with partners who share our values and business ethics.
We believe that we can only build a lasting relationship with our customers if we can offer you products that are best-in-class. We don't cut corners. We never compromise on quality.
Our candles don't just smell good, they look and feel good. We're in the business of making things beautiful so you won't want to throw them out.
We're not interested in charging you an arm and a leg for a candle. We strive to provide thoughtfully designed and beautifully made products at an affordable price point.
Meet the founders
When I returned to the United States after living in Sweden for several years, something didn't feel right. It took me a while to put my finger on it: In Sweden, people take a lot of pride in designing their home. They use materials and buy products that are made to last. They invest in household items and rarely toss them out. Back home, in the US, I noticed the opposite. America had a throwaway culture.
I started Siblings with my brother, David (yes, we're actual siblings!) because we wanted to be part of the change. My brother and I grew up outside of Buffalo, NY. We saw our mother compost before it was cool. We saw our dad building things with meticulous craftsmanship, things that were made to last. We grew up living sustainably, without compromising on the comforts that made us happy.
We hope you'll join us on this journey of tackling throwaway culture, and making beautiful, sustainable household goods that will make you feel truly at home.
