What a year it's been for Rustic and his candle company! We expanded our availability in Northern Virginia by going into 3 retail locations: Jerry's Flower and Gifts, The Global Local, and Butterfly Hill Farm.
Our Global Impact
This year, with the support of all our customers who purchased candles and wax melts, Rustic planted 646 trees! Rustic Slate Candle Company was added to the One Tree Planted business partners web page, for reaching their milestone of planting over 500 trees! (You can click here to see the other partners.)
In 2020, Rustic and his candles were also featured in a newsletter. The Jar Store ran the article, "Planting a Tree, One Candle at a Time."
In 2021, Rustic will continue to plant a tree for every candle and wax melt sold. New this year, customers now have an option during checkout to offset the carbon footprint of their order. For just $1, you can offset up to 220 pounds of carbon! Together we can make a difference for a better tomorrow.
Rustic's small business had to make difficult decisions throughout 2020, regarding the pricing of our products. Prices throughout the year increased tenfold for raw materials and shipping, as the pandemic impacted all facets of the economy. The decision to raise prices to our loyal fans came at a great cost, so we delayed as long as possible, with new pricing and bigger sizes going into effect at the start of the New Year. This small change enables Rustic to continue making the scents you have come to love!
Thank you for shopping small & sustainable!
May this New Year bring you all the happiness and joy,
