Laguna Candles Launches New Site and Lights the Way to a Cure

Laguna Beach, CA (PressExposure) August 13, 2009 -- Laguna Candles launched their newly designed and updated website today while simultaneously announcing their “Light the Way to a Cure” campaign. “We’re very proud of the way the site turned out”, commented owner Sharie Hendricks. “It’s clean, contemporary and easy to navigate”. As a way of showing support and love for the many friends and family members that have been affected by the ravages of cancer, Laguna Candles is eliminating all its candle inventory made from Paraffin wax and committing a portion of every sell to innovative research seeking a cure for cancer.

The company’s owner reports that, “this sort of commitment is huge for a small business like ours in these tough economic times, not only are we donating a portion of our profits but we’ve also had to take a hard look at our own product line.” Hence, Laguna Candles has eliminated one quarter of their, already paid for, inventory that wasn’t Soy wax or 100% Bees wax. “Every Paraffin wax candle in our inventory must be properly disposed of”, added the inventory control manager.

"This is a positive shift for us”, continued Sharie. Laguna Candles wants to make a positive impact and bring awareness to the fact that world-wide millions of households are still burning candles that contain Paraffin, an inexpensive sludge waste product of the petroleum industry that has been bleached and texturized with acrolyn, a known carcinogenic product. “Once these types of candles are burned they release toxins such as benzene and toluene which are inhaled and can linger in areas where burned” comments marketing director Clarence Hendricks, “these candles are as dangerous as to the lungs as second-hand smoke and it’s a non-renewable resource,” adds Clarence.

“Laguna Candles was founded on the concept of eco-friendly products and clean burning candles that would not harm the environment or the home. Based on the extensive research we did on things that could cause cancer, we realized that Paraffin candles with lead wicks were toxic to the environment. Soy and 100% Bees Wax candles were the only choice for us and we wanted to hold true to the concept of a green company as we establish our brand and become one of the premiere candle companies”, adds Sharie Hendricks.

Laguna Candles management expects their “Light The Way To A Cure” campaign to generate some buzz and bring continued awareness to the devastating affect cancer has had on many families world-wide as well as the plight of our planet. “We all need to start somewhere and do some small thing to help reduce our carbon footprint and promote a healthier environment in which to live”, added Sharie.
