We are Morgan Jost - co-founded by two friends, Charlotte & Georgie. Our story began when we met through work at the UK baby food company, Ella’s Kitchen - a certified B Corporation using business as a force for good. Inspired by Ella’s Kitchen’s values in having a purpose-driven mission & dream to operate ethically and sustainably, we wanted to build a brand based on a triple bottom line; people, profit, planet.
Both of us have been lucky enough to become One Young World ambassadors through Ella’s Kitchen (with Georgie attending Colombia in 2017 and Charlotte at The Hague in 2018). Joining this global movement of young leaders empowered us to start Morgan Jost - our personal commitment in making a change. Not only did we want to ensure we used ingredients and materials which were good to you and good to the planet, we also wanted to use our business to support a global issue.
Why mental health? We personally understand the importance of living with good mental health and wanted our products to have a direct synergy with the charity we supported, alongside having positive effects on people’s wellbeing. With around 1 in 4 people in the UK suffering from a mental heath problem each year, we wanted to commit to donating 50% of our profits to Mind.
With all this in mind, we have created a small collection of plant based candles using essential oils and natural soy wax. Each candle has a unique story behind it and are all carefully hand poured in our home town, Henley on Thames.
We hope you enjoy our candles and we thankyou for joining us in our commitment to making a change.
Charlotte & Georgie
