Candles with a Cause by Solutions. PBC.


Be a part of the solution and help to build a social business that assists those in need!

Solutions.™ Public Benefit Corp. is launching the sales of beautiful candles wholesale, in-person, and online. With your investment in our for-profit company, we will be able to hire multiple people in need in the Durango, CO area— those who are working to exit homelessness and other critical need situations — in November and December of 2019.

The passion behind this social business lies in offering handmade home goods for the stylish, discerning, and socially conscious consumer, while also supporting the lives of those in need through our ADay’sWork™ low-barrier, day labor work program. Our ADay’sWork™ program serves those who are homeless, in need of work experience and referrals, and those who just need a few extra dollars and a sense of support and community to lift them out of their current circumstances. 

We can't think of a better way to build a business than by helping someone in need at the same time. That's what building a social business is all about. 

We have formulated a way for community to come together and to support the building of real and sustainable solutions to social problems — a solution that is not a hand out, but a hand up — a solution that truly can save lives. 

Each candle is handmade from melting the wax and mixing the fragrance, to labeling, wrapping, and packaging each product with love and care. 

Those hired to work in our day labor work program receive the following: 

•  A daily paycheck
•  A daily meal 
•  Job skills development
•  Professional job reference and connections
•  Free life skills training via the FitforPeace™ program
•  A sense of community, connection, and care

Make your investment in our public benefit corporation and in the lives of others critical need today!

Holiday Candle

Our Vintage Green Holiday candle is in a 14 oz. beautiful glass jar with an 11 oz. wax fill and a crackling wooden booster wick. This special holiday candle comes in two fragrance styles - Holiday Hearth and Scent Free. The Holiday Hearth fragrance itself is a classic holiday fragrance that includes orange spice notes from the kitchen, fir and pine notes from the Christmas tree, and an earthy smokiness from the fireplace. It’s Christmas Eve in a candle. The candle comes packaged in a sleek black box with a holiday ribbon and a special holiday card. It is a perfect gift for teachers, co-workers, bosses, host/hostess, family members, friends, and even yourself. It makes a beautiful holiday centerpiece or lovely addition to holiday parties and events. The unique crackling wick and subtle fragrance conjures the cozy and festive feelings of the holidays.
