Ethical Responsibility

February 08, 2016

To the credit of the American Dream, hundreds of new businesses open up in our country every year. Each one has its niche, its target market, and its prized products, but sadly, not each one believes it has a responsibility to the community.

At Bath, Body, and Candle Moments, we have a different vision for the world. We know you could pick up and buy luxury candles and all natural goods at your local mall, but does each one serve a greater cause? Can you shop confidently knowing that you are making the world a little better with every purchase? With us, you can.

A portion of every single purchase…yes, EVERY purchase, will support the Staten Island Hope Animal Rescue. This incredible organization runs solely on dedicated volunteers who seek to foster pets, adopt pets, educate pet owners, rescue abused animals, and provide medical treatment to animals. We feel privileged and honored to have an opportunity to give back to our local community. BROCHURE SIHOPE

We feel so strongly about this issue, we’ve made it our mission. Several months back we received accreditation from PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies Program, and we have officially been accredited by Leaping Bunny as being cruelty-free.

We have also decided to include Fair Trade Organic Sugar as part of our sugar scrub recipes to ensure fair wages for farmers. We also only use Sustainable Palm Oil in our soap recipes, and we do recognize some of our vegan friends are still anti-palm oil, so we will be crafting some soaps that are palm-free, as well.

We know you’re busy, whether it’s work, school, kids, or a little of everything, but we know you also love animals and you care about the world you live in. We know you may not have time to drop a check in the mail to donate to your favorite charity, so let us do the work for you. We encourage you to shop for products that are committed to being cruelty-free, and encourage you to shop with companies that offer donations as part of their mission to save you time, and add a few brownie points to your conscience.

It should be the purpose of every company to give back to the world that makes them. Feel good on the inside and out by choosing companies who have ethical and social awareness, and we promise you will feel all the warm fuzzies you deserve.
