Starting this past August, By the Bay Botanicals became a partner with The Chesapeake Bay Trust. We both share a common goal - helping improve the environment - and teaming up only seemed to be the next logical step for By the Bay Botanicals to help work within our community and give back. Our small company is doing so through several different projects and our current project is our September Promotion: Save the Bay. During the month of September we're donating 10% of the proceeds of all of our Maryland themed palm wax candles to The Chesapeake Bay Trust. This money is goes toward supporting educational and restoration projects, such as the Chesapeake Conservation Corps, as well as grants ranging from small schoolyard habitat plantings to large scale restoration projects.
Here at By the Bay Botanicals we have initiated Go Green business practices such as:
Our business is making it even easier for our fans and candle lovers alike to help the environment by choosing to buy any size of our Maryland themed candles: Annapolis Sail Away, Baltimore Berry Blush, Chesapeake Bay Mist, Cambridge Classic Lavender, Cumberland Christmas Tree, St. Michael's Fresh Strawberry. For each one these candles bought either via this website or at our September art fairs, we will donate 10% of the sales of those candles to the Trust. As a sign of thanks, below check out a few of the photos from our property highlighting our pro-active environmental efforts.
