CAUSEBOX provide this sample; all opinions are my own.[pullquote align=”right”]CAUSEBOX – connect on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and visit their website for more info & to order your CAUSEBOX![/pullquote]There are a lot of subscription boxes available now, and it’s hard to know which one is right for you. But who doesn’t love getting surprises in the mailbox, I know I do, so I have started subscribing to a few.
This box is a relative newcomer to the market, it’s a quarterly subscription box with a hefty goal, to do good in the world, and that’s what makes this subscription box service different. In fact for every CAUSEBOX sent their creator, Sevenly.org, will donate 7% to charities doing good. Plus many of the items that go into the CAUSEBOX are created by or benefit those in need. But there’s something for you, too. Every CAUSEBOX comes with $150 worth of products that are socially conscious from companies who like you are out to change the world.
Subscription Boxes for Women: CAUSEBOX
While the boxes are created for women, there was nothing in this box that wouldn’t be loved by anyone. Boxes ship in June, September, December and March of each year. Check out the past CAUSEBOX’s here – how fabulous was box one!
The Spring 2015 CAUSEBOX – What’s Inside:
Perf Turkish Towel – $55
My favorite item in the CAUSEBOX for its style, versatility, and packability. Perf donates 15% of their profits to supply basic needs to women, children, and families. So what does the name Perf mean? The company describes it this way, “A fundamental quality of whole-living that is felt by being present, and recognizing the simple moments that nourish the soul.”
Tribe Alive Bracelet – $35
This sweet little bracelet was handcrafted by women in Honduras in fair-trade working conditions. While they learn skills that contribute to their community, I get a bracelet that reminds me that what I buy affects the lives of so many others. By choosing fair trade products, I’m doing what I can to be sure that people are fairly compensated for their work and their working conditions are safe.
Half United “Fighting Hunger” Necklace – $34
Half United donates half of the proceeds from the sale of this unique necklace to fight global hunger. They’re made from recycled bullet casings gathered from a firing range. They chose the bullet to symbolize a fight against hunger. I have mixed feelings about this necklace. I worry that by wearing it people will get the impression that I”m glorifying violence. Sure, it could spark a conversation where I would be able to explain the origin, but I’m afraid the majority of people wouldn’t ask. I’d have rather seen these melted down into a piece of jewelry – something beautiful made from something that could be used for violence. I’m not sure if I’ll wear it or not, but I do love that some of the proceeds do go to those in need.
Denik “Be the Change” Journal – $18
A sweet little journal to share your deepest secrets, your plans for the future, or your favorite recipe – you choose its purpose. Denik brings artists from around the globe who believe art can change the world. For every notebook Denik sells, they set aside a portion for funding schools through Pencils of Promise in developing countries. See the school Denik built in Zambougou, Mali in 2015 and ready more about Pencils of Promise.
“Good Day” Sevenly Cling – Retail $10
I put this on our bathroom mirror to remind my husband that every day can be a good day. He needs a gentle reminder now and then because his job is stressful. It’s a cling that can be put anywhere you need a reminder that you have a choice of how your day is.
Smarty Pants Travel Vitamin Travel Packets – $4
These are as good as candy, but they’re good for you! Smarty Pants have so much going for them, but, unfortunately, they’re not vegetarian or vegan-friendly. I had my husband taste test them, and he said you’d never know there’s fish oil in them or that they’re vitamins! These gummies are free from gluten, casein, GMOs, and high fructose corn syrup. They’re 3rd party lab tested and made in California. Made in orange, lemon, and strawberry-banana flavors and filled with vitamin B12 and D3. Plus they’re made without artificial flavors, preservatives or colors and for every bottle sold they donate to Vitamin Angels.
Good Spread Peanut Butter & Honey Spread – Sample
Good Spread gives a once of Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) for every ounce of their all-natural peanut butter and honey spread they sell. Good Spread is made with sustainably sourced palm oil, organic sea salt and made in Georgia. Good Spread is now available on Amazon.
I’ll have to say my first experience with CAUSEBOX has been fantastic. I loved most of the items in the box, and those that weren’t right for me will be passed on to others who’ll love them. This subscription box makes me feel good – it gives back, and it allows me to give to others in a simple way. I can’t wait for the Summer 02 CAUSEBOX to see what other fabulous companies are highlighted for the good they do in the world.
So what do you think, are CAUSEBOX subscription boxes for women or men too?
Do you know someone who’d love a CAUSEBOX? They make great gifts!
