The New York-based designers of these all-natural coconut wax candles are both socially and environmentally aware.

The makers have a strong dedication to all-natural products, staying far away from anything you wouldn't want to put in or on your body. Using beeswax instead of glue to secure the wick, they don't use any artificial coloring or paraffin wax. The glass container that the Keap candles come in can be reused as a beautiful drinking glass, with an easy-to-peel label.

Finally, KEAP has a mission statement, "Buy a candle, light a home" -- partnering with SolarAid to bring solar lamps to those not connected to electricity grids across the globe. In addition to all of these positive social and environmental impacts, the natural scents like "Green Market" and "Wood Cabin" fill a room without being overpowering.
