River Birch Candles was founded on the belief that not all candles were created equal. This belief has inspired the owners to create natural products that are safe for all to use while helping those in need. For each candle sold, River Birch donates one meal through Feeding America.
Shane and Erica Washington are high school sweethearts, who moved to Texas together in 2016. They are both huge candle lovers and when they discovered that most candles were toxic to them and their pets, the pair decided to take action.
They worked tirelessly to create a product founded in natural materials that didn’t lose the scent of their big candle company competitors. It was a challenge to develop an all-natural candle that would cover odors while still filling a room with fragrance.
After a year of collaboration with expert perfumers and commitment to crafting a completely safe and toxin-free product; River Birch Candles found its home in 100% soy wax, natural fragrances, and cotton wicks that have become a staple in the brand today.
But Shane and Erica knew that their passion didn’t end with a safe product that they are proud to share with their friends and family. Making a difference is embedded in their core beliefs. Today, the River Birch Candle family is proud to help feed those in need and support changes in legislation that help those facing hunger through the Stewpot Dallas and Feeding America.
