Our readers know we’re always on the lookout for eco-friendly gifts that don’t add to the ever-growing pile of ‘stuff’ we all seem to have. It’s one of the reasons we encourage you to give the gift of an experience, your time, or your talents.
It’s also a reason we’ve been looking into organic food or wine of the month club gifts. With perfect timing, Jameson Morris of the brilliant blog Organic Soul, emailed me about an exciting new gift option: Conscious Box.
Conscious Box is a monthly delivery of hand-picked pure and sustainable products. The box we received for review contained a variety of really good snacks and samples of shampoo and toiletries I’m excited to place in our guest room for holiday company.
The box itself is a small, sustainable work of art. We’ll certainly be reusing it for gifts this holiday, and all it needs is a natural twine tied around it to make a festive presentation. Every box contains recycled tissue paper and is made of recycled materials with soy-based inks. They even give you a list of ways to upcycle the box, or offer for you to send them back to the company to reuse or recycle sustainably.
What else is there to love about Conscious Box?
Aside from the very gift-friendly price – $12 for the box and $7 for shipping – Conscious Box is a green choice all the way.
Fair Labor at Fair Wages
Conscious Box is also a supporter of jobs in the United States. They only employ American workers who receive fair wages for the packing and shipping of boxes. All employees of Conscious Box are also encouraged to speak their minds and help the company move forward. They say it is a family more than a business.
Protecting the Planet
Conscious Box is also committed to conserving and preserving our the earth. They work with 1% for the Planet to make sure every purchase goes to a cause, and they are active in the green community, spreading the message of environmentalism and encouraging others to take a critical stance when it comes to personal and public sustainability.
