Sustainable Beauty: Diptyque and RED

Diptyque has always been one of my favorite candle companies but they just made it to my hall of fame. It was just announced that Diptyque has joined forces with Bono’s RED campaign to help provide life-saving medication for those living with HIV in Africa.

Sustainable beauty at its best. Who doesn’t love a candle? Says the company, “As the international symbol for hope, a candle’s light can now be a coveted item with a positive, humane, and impactful initiative. In partnership with (RED)™, diptyque has created an exceptional limited-edition candle that helps those living with HIV in Africa obtain the medicine they need to stay alive. The candle’s soothing, spicy scents are derived from certified fair trade vanilla. At the heart of this spicy aura, diptyque chooses to feature both Indian and Madagascar vanilla along with South African rooibos.

Taking its commitment a step further, the candle’s soothing, spicy scents are derived from certified fair trade vanilla. At the heart of this spicy aura, diptyque chooses to feature both Indian and Madagascar vanilla along with South African rooibos. The Indian vanilla comes from Karnataka, Kerala and Tamidu through a fair trade alliance between Firmenich and the EARF (Eco Agri Research Foundation). This spice, coveted by all those who inhale it, is even more precious to those for whom it ensures hope, the promise of a future and the ability to meet the needs of their children.”

With all of the devastation in Haiti, let us not forget about the global crisis effecting human beings around the world on a daily basis. Each one of us can make a difference. We can all find a way to help. Start here, now, and buy this candle. At $68.00, Diptyque will contribute 10% for each candle sold to The Global Fund in an effort to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.
