Candela Peru Artisan Story
Peru

Madre de Dios, a mountainous area of pristine forests, is one of the poorest regions of Peru. The most lucrative industry here is the collection and processing of the Amazon (Brazil) nut into oils, candy and candles for export. Unfortunately, few producers are informed or rewarded for extracting the oil in a sustainable manner meaning the region's rates of rainforest destruction are almost as high as its poverty. 

Candela Peru is an alternative biotrade organization which began acting as a fair trade business in the brazil nut industry in 1989 in order to improve circumstances for this region of Peru.

Exotic Scented Brazil Nut Candles
   Funds 5 meals

Qty.
 

These candles are made from the pods of the Brazil Nut tree, one of the tallest trees in the Amazon Rain Forest. Once the Brazil nuts have been harvested from the pod and sold in the local Peruvian market, the artisans transform a "waste" item, the pod, into a fine rain forest gift for you. The pods are filled with a combination of clean-burning paraffin wax, palm oil and fragrance to make these exotic-scented candles.

We are at a time in the history of this world where global warming is destroying the planet, and the need to preserve the rainforest is of extreme importance. The Brazil Nut tree only produces fruit in undisturbed forests. These candles are part of an initiative to protect more than 200,000 hectares of the Amazon Rainforest, and in addition provides support to more than 400 Amazon nut gatherers and their familes.

Available in a variety of colors and fragrances, these earth-friendly candles make use of the rain forest's renewable resources and create jobs for Peruvian artisans.
