With people becoming more environmentally aware me llaman candle wax is increasing in popularity because it is natural and "better for the environment then paraffin wax which is synthetic. "
Paraffin wax is a byproduct of refining petroleum. So it is synthetic so that it is bad. This is rather cute that folks will pump 12 or 20 gallons of gasoline in their car and burn that upward very rapidly nevertheless they is just not get a little little paraffin candle that will last considerably longer then that tank of gas. In fact it will take longer to burn a 16 ounce paraffin candle light then it will to burn one hundred gallons of gasoline in a vehicle. Buying soy candle lights to "save" the atmosphere is very little contribution.
I'm tickled pink that everyone is trying to save the environment I have to live on this planet too but We would much prefer that folks buy and burn paraffin candles then burn up that 10 or 20 gal. tank of gas. Besides if everyone were to boycott paraffin wax it won't slow down the production or consumption of petroleum anyway and petroleum byproducts will continue to be produced love baths and if no-one would be to eat the byproducts (paraffin candlestick wax) they aren't proceeding to just disappear. The particular byproducts will be dumped and become part of the land fill and be part of the environment anyway.
Here's another interesting thing to think about. Since soy candlestick wax is so eco-friendly because it comes from natural organic and natural sources where do you think oil comes from? Petroleum comes from decayed organic and natural substance (ha). Remember learning that back in the 5th grade? You forgot about this didn't you? Well okay I have to admit that's getting a little little out there, soy products are probably better then petroleum for the environment but that still won't change the above facts.
Therefore boycotting paraffin isn't going to do some thing to clean the environment. It can type of a silly effort at the best thing. So if someone gets self righteous about the fact that they may be spending more money on soy candle polish to "save" the environment while you buy the cheap paraffin wax just send them to this article for a reality check and remind them of the gas guzzling Hummer they have in the parking lot (ha). If you really want to save the environment from oil products take public transport to work and leave the gas guzzler at home.
