For the Girls
This fall and winter, Bridge Nine Candle Co. is proud to support Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest in their vitally important mission to “Inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.”
By inspiring our girls, we empower them to accomplish great things. A more equitable culture and society is imperative, and Girls Inc. is striving toward that vision every day. Now you can help. When you purchase our limited edition Peppermint Bark tumbler now through December 31, 2018, $5 dollars of your purchase goes to Girls Inc.
It’s all part of our quarterly Make It Brighter (#makeitbrighter) campaign. From the inception of Bridge Nine, it has been of the utmost importance to us that we give back to the causes and organizations that fuel our progress.
Our girls need to grow to be strong and resilient to face life’s challenges. They must be smart and creative to navigate the constantly evolving environment and economy. And they must be bold to dream big, dare bravely, and achieve in great measure. I couldn’t be more excited to support this organization. The mission and aim of Girls Inc. aligns seamlessly with the values and vision of Bridge Nine Candle Co.

Candle Maintenance and Safety
The following tips and precautions will sustain a happy and safe candle experience: the first time you light it, please allow your Bridge Nine Candle Co. candle to burn for approximately 2 hours, or until the wax reaches the edges of the container. This will give your candle a good ‘memory’ so that it burns evenly for the remainder of its lifespan.Keep your wick trimmed to 1⁄4” to help prevent smoking and soot build-up. Keep your candle out of direct sunlight. Soy wax has a low melting point and candles will melt in extreme heat and direct sun.
Do not leave a burning candle unattended.
Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
