Fire and ice. Two forces so diametrically opposed unite in support of a noble goal: climate change awareness. Called the Glacier Project and designed by native Icelander Brynjar Sigurðarson for PCM Design, these pale blue candles are a palm-sized likeness of their much larger, natural cousins. And like their wetter, colder, cousins, they melt when hot, just like what is happening to the glaciers around the world. It’s hard to watch the slow drip of these candles burning without feeling a sense of urgency, spurring you to consider taking immediate action to protect and preserve our natural environment. Likely starting with glaciers. If you’d prefer to relax, pick up some tealights instead.
