OMG WTF, Vegan Candles?!

Written by PETA | March 8, 2007

SoyScentsations-sm.jpgSo every now and then, we have these meetings at PETA where everyone in my department talks about the new animal-friendly features they have lined up for the website, and we brainstorm a few good ways to promote them on the Internet. The highlight of these meetings is always when my good friend Mylie starts raving about her latest project and we all make fun of her. Mylie, bless her heart, is the kind of girl who brings in, like, lotus nuts and fennel seeds for everyone to snack on at work, and while I haven’t been able to substantiate this rumor yet, it’s possible that she may have been raised on a commune. Anyway, the point of all this is that Mylie is even more pumped than usual about her new “DIY Vegan Candles” giveaway (yes, apparently not only is there such a thing as a vegan candle, but it’s possible to actually construct one yourself somehow … out of soy), so I thought I’d give her feature a little love on the blog. To be fair to Mylie, the giveaway is doing really well so far, and—though I hate myself for saying this—the candles actually look kind of cool. So there you have it—you can enter to win some kickass DIY, 100 percent vegan, soy candles here. If you don’t want to do it for the animals, do it for Mylie.

    as a longtime candle user i can affirm that regular petroleum based candles put out horrible toxins into your room and that no one should be breathing that. i tried soy candles and it was clean with nontoxic nonirritating fumes. safe to keep burning in your house for hours. i’ll never use anything but soy candles now.

  • Melissa says:

    Oy! Very awesome indeed. I love candles and incense and basically anythin scenty but I have major allergies . But I had tried a few soy candles before and they were wonderful the smoke was at least 60 less toxic on my eyes yes my allergies effect my eyes .and lungs.

    In response to Paige Clouse If you really look through peta’s website you will find all you need. Also try and If you look on peta’s homepage close to the bottom by “About Peta” you can click on Peta’s uncompromising stand on animal rights and also FAQ’s about animal rights. This will give you a lot of good info and also advice on how to answer tough questions that people may ask you.

    Another added touch is to put coffee beans in the candle. Doubtfully it will be a caffeine eye opener but it will look good to the eye. So “brew” up a Vegan candle!
