San Francisco, CA, April 23, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Two San Francisco based organizations work together to promote awareness around resource sustainability to invoke more responsible human conduct. Mason Jar Candles Inc. and A.U.M. Films realize that small actions, both good and bad, can scale to enormous measure when it comes to the global environment.
Earth Day is upon us and while many individuals take time to evaluate their carbon footprint, these companies strive to support charitable causes that are aligned with their pledge to ensure a brighter future for generations to come. By helping those in need and bringing people together from all walks of life, they hope their efforts reinforce the demand for change by urging sustainable consumerism and raising awareness about human environmental impacts.
That is precisely why Mason Jar Candles produces 100% of their candles with organic soy wax and renewable ingredients. Not only are their products free of harmful emissions common amongst chemically synthetic candles, their glass jars remain completely reusable for just about any occasion. Sustainability at its finest.
It is without further ado, Mason Jar Candles is excited to introduce one of the environmentally-based organizations they support; A.U.M. Films & Media, a local non-profit production company based out of San Francisco--just like them. Many of you may be familiar with A.U.M.'s debut film, "Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret" that was released in 2015 via Netflix. (If not, its highly recommended!) Executively produced by Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio, the film was widely received by audiences and critics alike.
With climate change becoming more and more present, it's time to take action. 91% of Brazil's Amazon rainforest has been destroyed while our oceans are becoming exceedingly toxic and sparse of life. Here at home, the climate crisis has left California in a record-breaking water shortage. Early last year, Governor Jerry Brown issued a state of emergency when California's current drought status was ranked as exceptional, issuing stringent regulations and plans for conservation. However, our state's water crisis is only a fraction of the destruction that proliferates on a daily basis.
So what does that mean for the rest of us? One word: sustainability. By definition, sustainability aims to maintain biodiversity indefinitely through a system of ecological 'checks and balances' thats proven to be a pivotal role in slowing down the detrimental effects of a growing global population.
In celebration of Earth Day (and week) from 4/22 through 4/30, Mason Jar Candles will double its charitable donations on every purchase made through the store. Donated proceeds will directly help environmentally-focused organizations including A.U.M. Films in combating climate change. Join Mason Jar Candles Inc. and A.U.M. Films and become a part of a noteworthy cause. Show your support by purchasing sustainable soy candles and make a vow to go vegan today. These small steps can achieve major output if everyone does their part.
