An Bountiful Eco Box

It’s hard when you are busy with work, friends and family to always stay up on the latest eco-conscious items. Luckily, Conscious Box has your solution.

Conscious Box is a monthly subscription service focusing on sustainability, environmental stewardship and social responsibility. With a monthly subscription the busy bee can get a wide array of eco-conscious items without searching them out in local health stores. Items include unique pure and natural products, organic food and even vegan beauty products. I got my hands on November’s box and I was so surprised to see the wide array of products that were included. Some of the stand-outs include the packet of Funky Monkey freeze dried fruit. Crunchy, tangy and sweet, Funky Monkey fruit snacks have no sugar added, are vegan, raw and gluten and peanut/tree nut free. 100% Pure body lotion, all natural, with organic and vegan ingredients. The lotion had a great smell and was made with no artificial fragrances, chemicals or preservatives. I like how hydrating the lotion was, and it was great on my sensitive skin. For the kids, and adults who are still kids at heart, there was Honest Tea Kid’s pouch, which is made with USDA certified organic ingredients, with no high fructose corn syrup. The company also has the Honest Kids Drink Pouch Brigade which helps plant trees, donate to charities, and keeps drink pouches out of land fills.

It also comes with suggestions on how to reuse the box. Included with the products was a card on 5 fun ways to reuse your Conscious Box. Suggestions were very clever and included things like shred the boxes for a great base for creating compost, use the box’s window as a one-of-a-kind picture frame or plant a flower in it and watch it grow through the box’s window.

Conscious Box’s mission is to be dedicated to introducing people to the most ethical, sustainable, and honest businesses that create the purest products available. And they do the work for you by scouring the marketplace to find these great items that stand out above the rest. They are also committed to overcoming the problem of “greenwashing.” Greenwashing is a deceptive business that used tactics to lead consumers to believe something is “green” when it really isn’t. Conscious box hopes to educate, inform and prevent consumers from falling for these tactics by providing them with products that are authentic and purposeful.
