What does “Socially Conscious” mean?
In essence, someone that gives a f*ck.
It’s being aware of important social issues and wanting to make a positive contribution to your community.
In a sometimes f*cked up world it can seem like problems are just too big and too far gone that we as individuals are too small to change anything. So we do nothing.
The Prospect Project aims to make a positive impact by changing the way people perceive being “charitable” and how collectively and consciously we can make small choices that do good.
By simply buying our candles, you are giving back to not for profit causes and supporting a business that strives to be unique, ethical and eco-friendly.
You can be charitable without having to stand on a corner rattling a tin.
You don’t have to wear harem pants and have hairy armpits to give a shit about the environment.
You can be a meat-eater and still love animals.
*tumbleweed rolls past*
I personally choose to not eat meat, but that’s my choice. My best Friend Eli loves nothing more than a blue steak (and has been known to send a plate back once, or twice at a restaurant till the chef gets it right) yet is one of the biggest animal lovers I’ve ever met, having fostered numerous rescue dogs and is constantly donating to animal charities.
Be kind. Don’t judge others if they choose to eat meat, use disposable cutlery or wear fast fashion. Run your own race.
Ordering your coffee and realised you left your reusable cup at home? well slap my ass and call me Sally, this doesn’t make you a bad person, just remember next time!
It’s all those teeny tiny choices we make on a daily basis that can add up to positive change.
Burn candles. Do Good.
We're Weird + We Like It
If you’re looking for a luxurious, opulent, luxury candle, then soz, you’ve come to the wrong place.
Our candles don’t look or smell like other candles, and we’re pretty proud of that.
We don’t take ourselves seriously, we’re more like that mate that’s sarcastic, cheeky and borderline offensive, but with a big heart.
We Love Our Community
All our candles are 100% vegan and made by hand, with love.
$2 from all online sales is donated to your choice from our selection of not for profit causes and we regularly donate our products to worthy causes too.
We support women in business through collaborations with local photographers, marketing gurus + fellow small business owners.
Our candles that aren’t “pretty” enough are sold at a discount, with 100% profits donated to NFP’s.
Mother Nature is So Gangster
We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment
What, no pretty box for my candle? nope, we have specifically designed our products without unnecessary packaging that will just end up in your bin, and landfill.
Our jars are 100% recyclable by you or us – your candle may have had a past life as
someone else’s candle #reincarnation
We recycle paper waste from five households which is then shredded and
turned into filling to keep your orders protected in transit.
Online orders are wrapped using Geami Greenwrap – a fully recycled sustainable
alternative to bubble wrap.
Any bubble wrap, expanders and tissue paper used in your order has been
recycled by us from our suppliers.
We also reuse and recycle cardboard boxes both for packing orders and in our messy workshop.
Our couriers are booked through Sendle – Australia’s first 100% carbon-neutral delivery service, who offset the emissions of every parcel.
WORD ON THE STREET…
“Holy moly, these lil’ suckers are a candle-y game changer!
I can’t decide what I love more: the simple, on-trend, minimalist branding which speaks my (sassy) Love Language; the heavenly scents – with just a hint of ‘f*ck you’ vibes – that are so damn good I actually drooled into the Lemon Meringue Pie candle (#truestory); or the fact that a portion of each order goes to a deserving charity of my choice.
You may regret buying lots of things online – like that faux fur coat from eBay or some dodgy fake tan from Brazil – but stocking up on alllll the rad AF candles from The Prospect Project won’t be one of them.
Bravo, team. BRA-vo. *slow clap*”
“Beyond expectation. Not only do they smell incredibly divine but they look so fabulous! Thank you thank you thank you!”
“Mash up all the delicious memories of mum’s cake creations from the Women’s Weekly birthday cake cookbook from every birthday I ever had and boom, you have this candle. Burning this beauty also fools guests into thinking you are level 10 housewife.”
“Would it be acceptable to eat this?”
“Everyone loves unicorns right?”
“If this is what unicorn poo really smells like I want to bathe in it”
“After burning this to the bottom I can confidently say that if I had a pet unicorn I’d let it poo inside.”
“We first fell in love with TPP’s kick ass candle range back in 2016 and the love grew deeper when they released their “Becky with the good hair” Lemonade & Strawberry flavoured, Beyonce inspired candle!! (We burn that baby every single day) Not to mention the kick ass #girlboss behind the brand who we love having as a part of our #FIFDTRIBE. Thank you Shannon, for sharing your Godly candle making skills with the world”
“Shoutout to @prospectproject for sending us this deeeeelicious hand poured soy candle. The only thing we love more than candles is having them emblazoned with the lyrics from Shoop”
“This amazing candle came today, I’m obsessed”
“I NEED MORE OF THESE CANDLES IN MY LIFE”
Yummy…my house smells like I’m standing outside the Hummingbird Bakery in Notting Hill. Absolutely Divine @prospectproject
