Earth Hour

Earth Hour

Earth hour candle from Queen B. According to the World Wildlife Fund: "... make sure you use 100% pure beeswax candles which are gentler on our planet - smoke free, non-toxic and non-allergenic. They are also made of natural beeswax, not petroleum based wax, so they are effectively carbon neutral.” WWF.

"Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million homes and businesses turned their lights off for one hour to make their stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries participating. Global landmarks such as the, Sydney Harbour Bridge, The CN Tower in Toronto, The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Colosseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.

In March 2009, hundreds of millions of people took part in the third Earth Hour. Over 4000 cities in 88 countries officially switched off to pledge their support for the planet, making Earth Hour 2009 the world’s largest global climate change initiative.

In 2010, a record 126 countries and territories, over 4,000 cities, towns and municipalities and hundreds of millions of people across the globe took part in delivering a powerful action of hope for a better, healthy planet." - www.earthhour.org.

No matter what your beliefs on climate change, any right-minded person would agree that it is preferable to burn a natural beeswax candle in their living space to a paraffin (petro-chemical) candle or a hydrogenated soya or palm oil candle. WWF chose Queen B candles because beeswax candles are naturally carbon-neutral and of the beeswax candles around, Queen B candles perform the best.

Ever wondered where the World Wildlife Fund bought their candles to light up their official Earth Hour launch event? They came to Queen B. With lights out and a room full of VIP's, mass beeswax candles were the order of the night including using Queen B 9-hour tealights in jars for mass lighting, beeswax votives for impact, beeswax tapers en masse in large candelabras for impact and clusters of pure beeswax pillars. All 100% pure Australian beeswax and all effectively carbon neutral.

For Earth Hour, and every day after, make a REAL difference (to the planet, a small Australian manufacturer and Australian beekeepers). Light a pure Australian beeswax candle from Queen B.
