Man Cans, created by teenage entrepreneur Hart Main, are a clever twist on traditional candles. Main's candles are geared towards men that are generally turned off by flowery scents; instead, his candles come in scents such as bacon, campfire, Grandpa’s pipe and new mitt.

The teenage entrepreneur of Man Cans collects soup cans that he uses as the frame for his candles, which he makes in his kitchen. When a can of soup is donated to the budding entrepreneur, the soup is donated to a soup kitchen. Main has found a remarkable way to inspire others to donate to his project.

The young entrepreneur of Man Cans has created not only a unique niche product but also a compelling story behind the product.
