The purpose of this project is to make and sell all natural soy candles at local farmers markets and stores. I plan to work with my sponsor, peer mentor and friend to experiment with making and eventually creating a soy candle made entirely from eco-friendly materials. I will have to do research on what all natural materials are okay to use. I will work with the Michigan State University's Product Innovation counselor to learn how to develop a good product and make my candles more attractive to customers. I plan to sell the candles at local farmers markets, youth conferences and stores.
