It's no exaggeration when I say that I love the premise of Conscious Box. By virtue of what a subscription box is -- a monthly package filled with small samples of snacks and products, each individually wrapped, each with the potential for the sampler to discard if she's uninterested -- they inevitably create waste.
Conscious Box creates an earth-friendly, conflict-free alternative to your typical subscription box. The company also offers a gluten-free and a vegan version of the subscription box but not a gluten-free and vegan option. At $19.95/month, and slightly less if you pay for multiple months at once, it's pricey for the amount of products you receive. Still, the peace of mind from conscious consumerism is in the price, and I opine that it's worth it.
With a two-month run at Conscious Box, I felt at ease having this package delivered to my doorstep. And I felt mostly satisfied with the products that arrived: vegan sunscreen, vitamins, wheat grass, African soap, snacks, and my favorite, a wean cube. Wean cubes (I guess) are intended for storing baby food or other liquids that could easily create a big ol' mess if toted in standard tupperware. But these little guys provide just enough space for what would be considered a typical serving of nuts or seeds or trail mix. In that sense, it's great for portion control and it's just super cute! I love my wean cube.
September Conscious Box -- slim pickings, just 10 items!
Though my wean cube is probably the only item that I will seek out after my two months of receiving Conscious Box, uncovering this one product feels valuable! Maybe you'll chance upon your next favorite eco-friendly beauty product or snack with Conscious Box.
