Candle With A Cause

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT DOING BUSINESS IN OHIO?

We love how passionate and dedicated Ohio businesses are in supporting their community as a whole. Our mission is to collaborate with other businesses and nonprofits in order to create a brighter community and we've thrived due to the strong bonds we've formed with many like-minded organizations and entrepreneurs.

DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS:

Purchasing a Candle With a Cause (CWC) allows members of the community to support local nonprofit organizations, small businesses, and the environment. We turn reclaimed glass bottles from local bars, restaurants, and distilleries into high-quality scented soy candles that feature local nonprofit organizations on their labels. 25% of the net profit from each candle is then donated to our nonprofit partners.

CWC was founded in 2010 by four friends as a humble basement project. Over the past three years we have grown into a thriving business that helps raise several thousands of dollars annually to support over 12 local nonprofit organizations. We also pride ourselves on being able to promote other small businesses that are active in our community and on being able to prevent thousands of pounds of discarded glass from entering the local waste stream.
