I received a Conscious Box in the mail last week to review. In other words, they gave it to me for free to check out and tell you all about it. First, what is Conscious Box? Conscious Box is a monthly subscription service dedicated to introducing you to ethical, sustainable, and honest companies and their products. Each month you get a sampling of products from different companies. Some will be sample sizes and others will be full sized products. Instead of you as a consumer having to pick and choose different companies, they do the work for you, packing the box with different products each month.
I hit the jackpot by getting one this month. I have discovered Hail Merry chocolate macaroons. Gluten free, vegan, raw oils, and no refined sugars make these macaroons more people friendly and less “I have no idea what that ingredient is”. Actually, I understood every ingredient. I am in love. So glad my husband isn’t a coconut person. They are mine – ALL MINE! Forget the rest of the box….
No, really, I will tell you what else was in this one –
~sample of bodhichitta botanicals lotion
~packet kidz superfood
~fruit and veggie twist
~Dale’s raw protein bar
~sustain people towel (re-useable paper towel)
~peeled snacks apple – YUM!
~Hail Merry macaroons
~Nutiva hemp seed
~4 coupons for some of the products above
Here’s the good – ~100% recycled packaging – not clear if that is just shipping or also products also.
~BPA Free Labels
~Inks from veggies
~Great way to try new products without having to worry about going directly through
~many items are organic and claim to be very conscious of sustainability
Here’s the bad –
~Came in a box within a box. That seemed rather unsustainable to me.
Overall, I really like the concept of Conscious Box. I love trying out all the products without having to be locked into paying for them plus shipping and finding out I don’t like it. That is always such a waste. This way I get 1 package for a flat rate and if I love it I can go buy from the company.
