Graduating from the University of Waterloo with Honours in Environmental Studies, Kharam is super passionate about fighting climate change; the greatest threat facing humanity right now.
At the same time, while pursuing his childhood dream of becoming a pilot, Kharam feels guilty after each flight for the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere.
One fine day, Kharam purchased a traditional candle which after lighting a couple of times, caused his mother to experience nausea and light headaches due to the burning of paraffin and other toxic chemicals. There must be a safer, healthier alternative to paraffin candles Kharam thought while at the same time giving back to the environment!
Researching on this opportunity, Kharam met Anjali – an environmentalist, candle lover, and passionate about making real change, and Rachel – an environmentalist, entrepreneur, and a marketing expert. The three took together a mission to clean up our climate with….soy candles! Thus, 4ourclimate was founded.
