Milk Jar Candle Company

Milk Jar Candle Company hand pours soy candles with natural wood wicks right here in Calgary. Concerned about the health risks associated with parraffin candles, Milk Jar started as an effort to bring a more affordable and clean burning candle to the local market. Our passion is in our product but our vision is in our community. Each year we partner with a different not-for-profit organization who create social, recreational, and/or educational programs for youth with special needs in Calgary. $1 from every candle sold is donated to our feature not-for-profit. Our first year in 2017 we donated $2000 to the Canadian Association for Disabled Skiing, and this last year we raised $8336 for The Between Friends Club.

This year we are supporting Pacekids Programs, who offer early intervention programs for children with special needs in the preschool years. Their mission is to give children and families the tools early on to develop and to thrive when they are ready to enter the public education system.
