Melody is a small business owner and the founder of Mala the Brand, a candle company that makes eco-friendly coconut soy candles. She has always been obsessed with candles but struggled to find a candle company that avoided the use of harmful chemicals. Coupled with an outrageously expensive price tag and many a disappointing scent, Mala the Brand was born. Mala the Brand is inspired by European design and scents, combined with the nature of her hometown of Vancouver, BC is known for. Mala the Brand blends all Melody’s favorite things into one: candles, passion for sustainability, and her love for all things marketing, design, and entrepreneurship. Mala the Brand evolved naturally out of the desire to create something beautiful yet sustainable.
She is a one-woman show, from pouring candles, to creating her online content, to responding to customer emails, keeping her small business local and as sustainable as possible is her top priority.
