If you feel your breath catch in your throat, chances are it’s because you’ve caught a whiff of a Starling Candle. These hand-poured candles are not only beautiful; they’re also responsible for raising over $100,000 for people living without electricity in sub-Saharan Africa. Long term solar power, Starling believe, is a realistically attainable solution for these people. We already know about the benefits.
