The Yvonne E.
White Collection produces beautiful products that are
the ultimate convergence of old world hand craftsmanship
and modern technologically driven living experiences. We
seek to offer products that are utilized now and are
always conscious of the effects of the continuity of
economic, social, institutional and environmental
aspects of human society, as well as the non-human
The Yvonne E. White Collection (YEWC) signature candles
are made of the highest grade of 100% Japanese soy wax,
which is measurably more environmentally friendly than
paraffin wax products. YEWC candles, which are chemical
free, produce a much cleaner burn. Pure cotton woven
wicks are self-trimming and do not emit harmful
carcinogens into the air. All of our custom fragrances
are completely natural. Scents are made of nature’s best
essences including herbs, flowers, exotic fruits and
essential oils. Each “Destination” candle contains 16%
fragrance, the highest in the industry. Our U.S. made
candles have an excellent burn-time of approximately 6
times that of regular paraffin products on the market.
A) “Being Green”
costs more, because of the basic requirements of natural
ingredients. Studies are revealing that there are
multiple disadvantages to using paraffin wax and
artificially scented candles. These disadvantages
include non-renewable resources, imported oil dependent
and a faster burn which releases more soot into the air.
In fact, the smoke from paraffin candles contains 11
known toxins of which two are carcinogenic (toluene and
B) YEWC candles
are made in the USA. Our research tells us that up to
candles are imported from China. We strive to keep the
YEWC production in the States, thus we contribute to our
economy throughout production. These two facts alone are
converting many new customers. Also, while more and more
imported products are retained longer and longer at
ports, YEWC candles flow through production to market
C) As our planet
is increasingly more denser with environmental
complexities, YEWC is more cognizant that we are all
interconnected. We support many social and global
projects and are planning now to incorporate Coconut Wax
(a much better product that will be “the New Soy”); it
helps the Rain Forrest eco system and economy.
D) The extended
burn time of YEWC candles actually pay for themselves
and more than makes up for the investment. Our candles
last longer. Industry standards of paraffin usually burn
1 hour to 2 hours per ounce. YEWC soy candles burn 5 to
6 hours per ounce.
volume is one of our strongest attributes; we handle
each candle as if it’s the only one. It is our practice
not to produce product that is cranked out in a big
cookie cutter factor setting. My team and myself oversee
every step and procedure of YEWC production.
A majority of our furniture is made of recycled and
reclaimed wood. YEWC showcases pieces of natural
petrified wood from the rain forests of the world. In
addition to wood, other natural elements are used. YEWC
is proud to feature the designer hand welding and master
wood craftsmanship, producing products that are
beautiful without the use of linen or fabric coverings.
Whether it’s in your home or restaurant, this feature
eliminates the laundering process. By doing so, harmful
chemicals and soaps used in the cleaning process are
prevented from contaminating lakes, rivers and oceans.
SIGNATURE PACKAGING ALTERNATIVES
As an alternative to using Styrofoam as packing
material, YEWC uses naturally collected bird feathers.
Rather than gift-wrapping items in paper, The Yvonne E.
White Collection signature style utilizes repurposed
fabric. Economically, the cost is the same as paper, but
fabric wrapping is reusable. Precious trees are
therefore saved from destruction for the production of
