nEARTHme is an Australian eco store dedicated to consciously created pieces and eco gifts for your home, with a collection of local artisan Australian brands on offer. All products in our eco store have been carefully chosen with intention and care. Quality and design are of utmost importance to us. We believe in supporting small businesses that have a personal approach across all interactions and assurance in the highest quality products. At the heart of what we do though and why we were founded foremost – is to help.
In light of our connectedness to People and the Planet, nEARTHme is proud to announce partnerships with Kenshi Candles Charity, the Little Cloud Foundation and Make A Difference Community. All three of these organisations share in our values of community and making a difference.
Kenshi Charity was founded by a fourteen-year-old boy who wanted to change the world. Liam Foldi saw the struggle of charities being able to raise enough funds and so sought out to create products that give back, with over half of the net profits donated directly to projects across the world.
The projects Kenshi Candles supports help provide nutritious meals to people struggling with food insecurity, school supplies for disadvantaged kids and homes for people in remote villages or those living below the poverty line – just to name a few. Kenshi Candles Charity has raised over $65,000 for projects across Australia, Kenya, Sri Lanka, Papua New Guinea and Myanmar.
Kenshi Candles Charity, as the name suggests, creates beautiful hand-poured scented candles, right here in Melbourne. The entire process, from pour to packaging is done in-house by hand, using the highest-grade natural soy wax, essential oils and cotton wicks and are 100% vegan. Each scented soy candle is designed to elevate your home space with a soft flame that burns for hours of tranquil enjoyment.
As the demand grew for the hand poured scented candles, Kenshi Candles Charity also saw an opportunity to further help their community and now employs Chin refugees from Myanmar who were forced to flee their homes due to the threat of persecution by Myanmar’s oppressive government. With every candle purchased, Kenshi Candles Charity is not only able to provide income to members of the refugee community of Melbourne but also fund projects around the world that are helping those who need it most.
The Little Cloud Foundation was founded by Kristina Kolupaeva and her several friends who travelled through Russia only to discover an overwhelming number of orphaned or abandoned children living in institutions that were not receiving proper care. With state-run hospitals, orphanages and birth centres struggling to meet even the basic needs of the children, Little Cloud Foundation helps to make feasible contributions to children who have been deprived of love and care. Little Cloud Foundation supports and empowers these children residing in either Australia or Former Soviet Union countries.
The Make A Difference community, as equally inspiring, is a social enterprise on a mission to eradicate hunger. The Make A Difference Community currently buys just over 5 tonnes of pasta and rice every month, which is then donated to food rescue and relief charities across Australia. This feeds hundreds of disadvantaged people across our country who would otherwise struggle to eat. From the sale of one Kenshi Candles Charity, we can purchase the equivalent of eight meals, providing a hearty meal and alleviating the stress of food insecurity.
At nEARTHme, we intend to do more. We care about the world and we care about people. It saddens us to see people struggling, but we are equally inspired to help. Uniquely to nEARTHme, the purchase of just one candle can help three different charities helping disadvantaged people all around the world.
Scented candles are available through our online eco store alongside a range of eco friendly gifts. For more information, check out Kenshi Candles Charity, Little Cloud Foundation and the Make A Difference Community.
