Without the Island’s natural resources, Nantucket Candle Company wouldn’t exist. We are dedicated to the preservation of this magical place and our partnership with the Nantucket Conservation Foundation ensures a portion of each candle sold will keep ACK beautiful for generations to come.

The Foundation works to preserve “Nantucket’s character by permanently conserving, maintaining and managing natural areas and habitats, while encouraging an appreciation of and interest in the Island’s natural resources.” It currently owns and maintains 9,006 acres—which is nearly 1/3 of Nantucket."

The conservation owns and preserves the most dear locations on island such as Coatue, Eel Point, Head of the Plains, Little Neck, Madequecham and Tom Nevers, Masquetuck, Middle Moors, Milestone Cranberry Bog, Nantucket Field Station, Norwood Farm, Sanford Farm, Ram Pasture, Squam Farm, Squam Swamp, Tupancy Links, Windswept Cranberry Bog.
