Birmingham, Alabama – Sustainable home decor company, The Cozy Home will plant trees for every order placed online after partnering with non-profit organization, One Tree Planted, who are on a mission to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees.
This is the latest in a string of sustainable initiatives by the handmade soy candle specialists. The Cozy Home also buys carbon credits for every order to offset the carbon emissions created by shipping orders to their customers. They are also in the process of creating a sustainability page on their website, where they will detail their latest sustainability efforts and report on the results of those efforts.
The Cozy Home was founded in 2019 by Kyle Weimer, who currently remains the sole owner and operator. In addition to their handmade soy candles, The Cozy Home sells handmade bath bombs and soaps, and photography wall art. They also source items to help support other small businesses. Weimer, who has owned several small businesses in the past, is focused on building The Cozy Home while working toward his Masters at Bowling Green State University, hoping to add a small cozy coffee shop to the operation in the future.
Weimer said when discussing how he came to start a business that specializes in creating a beautiful home environment, “I always dreamed of building a business I felt passionate about. Being a homebody, it is important to me to create a cozy space. When I started experimenting with making handmade soy candles, I immediately noticed the calming and comfortable feeling you get as your house fills with captivating fragrance after lighting a candle.”
The Cozy Home has developed some firm fans in its first two years of business, with repeat shopper Marcus saying, “I took a chance and ordered candles that I hadn’t previously experienced. I’m pretty sure I’ve found a long-time favorite, Cashmere Plum. It’s the perfect balance of all the good things and reflective of the provided description. The burn quality is exceptional.”
