Along with Autumn comes less daylight hours, this Fall LITE+CYCLE is supporting the work of Solar Electric Fund. Fostering better lives with an infinitely renewable resource, SELF empowers communities around the globe by providing energy and light with solar power.
One consistent area of focus is Haiti, where Lite and Cycle solely sources its Vetiver essential oil. In 2013 SELF solarized six primary schools and one junior high school in the Boucan Carré district of Haiti’s Central Plateau, benefitting roughly 2,000 students.
There are numerous sustainable Vetiver farms in Haiti of which 30,000 families now make a living selling the plants to oil distilleries for use in aroma applications – like our All Natural Vetiver Candle. It is our hope that by supporting SELF through the purchase of a (Haitian grown) Vetiver candle we might come full circle. That possibly we may play a small part in providing light to the very families that grow this powerful plant.
For the months of September and October LITE and CYCLE will be donating 10% of all online sales to Solar Electric Fund.
