Conscious Box Review - Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day! I was sent the earth day conscious box for review and wanted to share it with you for Earth Day.  First off, what is Conscious Box?  It is a monthly delivery of pure sustainable products from reliable quality companies who care about the environment.   This is a great way to find dependable companies you can trust.  If you aren't sure what items are really natural, organic or sustainable, Conscious Box picks them out for you and sends them to you to try.  You will get a variety of products.  I got everything from lip glaze to cleaning products to snack food.  I absolutely love this idea.  They manage to fit TONS of stuff in this little box.  It was like opening presents.  Not only do they send you great products to try, they include a bunch of coupons too and you all know how I love coupons.

You can subscribe with monthly deliveries and payments at $12 a month plus $7 shipping OR you can subscribe for 3 months of deliveries at $33 plus $7 shipping per month  OR  subscribe for 6 months for $64 plus $7 shipping per month.  If you do the 3 or 6 month option, you save some money but I think $19 per month for this box shipped isn't bad at all.  You can find them at http://consciousbox.com/

Here is what I got in my Earth Month April Conscious Box:

Yes, this all fit in that little box.  Can you believe it?

The Mission of Conscious Box

Conscious Box is dedicated to introducing you to the most ethical, sustainable, and honest businesses that create the purest products available. We scour the marketplace to find those that stand above the rest. Discovery defines the Conscious Box experience.

The Importance of Discovery

We emphasize discovery for a number of reasons. Discovery leads to enlightenment, stronger understanding of others, and better personal and planetary health. By finding conscious businesses that support your personal needs, you can do a lot for the world just by making responsible shopping decisions.

What about Greenwashing?

Conscious Box is committed to overcoming the problem of greenwashing. Used to describe deceptive business tactics that lead consumers to believe something is “green” when it really isn’t, “greenwashing” is rampant in today’s markets. We hope to educate, inform, and prevent consumers from falling for these tactics by providing them with products that are authentic and purposeful."

The Ethics of Consciousness

Conscious Box, above all, is dedicated to the very ethics it seeks out in other businesses.

Resource Use

We strive to make every aspect of our business as sustainable as possible. We're always looking for ways to reduce waste and increase efficiency to support a more conscious approach to business. Some of the ways we do this is by using 100% post-consumer recycled cardboard, recycled tissue paper, and vegetable-based inks for printing. We also encourage our subscribers to upcycle their boxes and share their ideas on our Facebook page. We're striving to make our business as waste-free as possible, but only you can make this a truly zero-waste experience!

Smart Shipping

We recognize that although we strive to be a waste-free business, the process of shipping can be taxing on our environment. That's why we designed our box with this problem specifically in mind. The size of each Conscious Box was strategically chosen to maximize shipping efficiency while still providing enough space for a huge variety of products in a wide range of shapes and sizes. We're constantly improving upon this process, and always on the lookout for new ways to improve our carbon footprint. As a member of 1% for the Planet we seek to help offset these emissions, and are seeking partnerships with other organizations to continually lessen our impact.

Honest Labor at Fair Wages

Conscious Box is also a supporter of jobs here in the United States. We 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. To us, this is a family more than a business.

Protecting the Planet

Conscious Box is also committed to conserving and preserving our home, Mother Earth. We work with 1% for the Planet to make sure every purchase goes to a cause, and we also 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.

Committed to Customers

Finally, we encourage all of our subscribers to write us, review us, and be critical of us! No business is perfect, and Conscious Box is no exception. We constantly seek ways to improve our business, and we know you, the consumer, knows best. Tell us your thoughts and help us make change!

    I love natural products, but always have trouble finding natural products and items... I might actually sign up for a month or two of this.

    Thanks for posting it!
