Some environmentalists advocate recycling. Others suggest driving hybrid cars. Sandra Bullock is doing her part for the environment with a line of soy wax candles.

The actress taped an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show – scheduled to air Tuesday – to commemorate Earth Day. During her time with Oprah Winfrey, the actress revealed, “I started researching and you find out about lead wicks and chemicals in your candles.” Her solution? To use soy wax, which is a “renewable resource.”

Said Winfrey: “Sandra’s in the earth-friendly candle making business,” prompting a laugh from the actress who joked: “Yeah, [it’s] something to fall back on.”
