This isn’t the end of our wax journey. Work continues on our regenerative palm wax. Besides doing everything this updated formula can, that wax will create the first direct trade, transparent, organic- and fair trade-certified wax for scented candles. And that will be well worth the 8 years of sweat, blood, and tears to bring it about. 😅
I’d love to hear what you think about all this wonky wax and supply chain business. Does it have parallels in other products or decisions in your life? Simply reply to this email.

If you enjoyed this article, you might enjoy our not-quite-weekly free newsletter where we share our lessons on our journey toward our regenerative vision, product launches, and behind-the-scenes happenings.
We left social media in 2021 because we found its current mechanics didn’t align with our purpose to facilitate connection to the natural world, our loved ones, and our own spirits. Since then, our newsletter has become a vibrant place for healthy conversation around topics ranging from alternative business ownership models to happy hour cocktail recipes.
What our readers say about it:
“It’s very thoughtful and not sales-y like all other marketing newsletters.”
“I like reading how a business is trying to be as progressive as possible in a capitalist system.”
“I normally delete emails from businesses but with the Keap newsletter I was actually interested in reading through! Made me feel that you guys really care about us and the work you do."
