Yankee Candle is "America's best loved candle" according to all of their advertisements. However, the company does not have a recycling program aimed at the reuse of existing glass candle jars. Consumers are expected to recycle the jars with their community recycling. This is environmentally wasteful, in that it puts an extra burden on community recycling programs and adds to the municipal recycling budget. It also requires more and more jars to be manufactured in order to supply Yankee Candle with jars. Yankee Candle can show their commitment to being green by starting a recycling program for their empty candle jars.

      More companies need to start taking steps to help save the environment. I see no reason why they can not provide a recycling program for their products. You have consumers practically begging them to do something. I am certain it can be done by this company who is bringing in huge profits

      Responsible stewardship of our planet and its resources is the responsibility of all of us -- and critically important for big companies like YC which use incredible amounts of resources to make money. I enjoy the products but my concern about all the little ways to be environmentally responsible extends to whether I continue to purchase YC without the recycling option.
