Conscious Box

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.

At long last my Conscious Box arrived today! I ordered it about a month ago and was anxiously awaiting its arrival. November marked the maiden voyage for this product... or should I say products. Basically, Conscious Box is a box filled with organic, sustainable, fair trade products. I figured it would be a good fit for me to try out, being that I'm trying to incorporate more of these types of products into my life/my family's lives. As you may know, trying all natural, fair trade stuff can be expensive and you might not always like it. I've purchased bars of soap, shampoo, granola bars, cookies, etc. for a healthy sum and then wished I hadn't when I got them home. With Conscious Box, you get a box of samples in the mail each month- lots of products to try for not a lot of money!

I ordered November's box. By the way- you can order month by month but you save $ when you order several months. A gift option is also available. But back to the box. First off, LOVED the packaging. On the welcome card that comes with it, there are 5 Fun Ways to Reuse Your Conscious Box. I liked: 1. Plants a flower and watch it grow through the box's window. They are actually asking people to post photos of how they reuse their Conscious Box on FB to get a bonus gift in next month's box. Cool beans. 

The box had a card about Gratitude, this month's theme. It also has a welcome card and a card that describes each product/company represented. Here is what November's box contained:
100% Pure Lotion (2)
Mary's Gone Crackers Double Chocolate Cookie
Funky Monkey Dried Fruit
Cocoa Well Energy
Honest Tea Appley Ever After Kid Pouch
Kind Bar
Glee Gum (2)
Pharmacopia Verbena Lotion
Special Gift- Living Nuts

I can eat everything in this box. I recently cut gluten and dairy from my diet because I finally decided to deal with my food allergies and needless to say, that's rough. No gluten is hard (at first). Pair that with no dairy and you pretty restricted options. I was overjoyed to read the packaging on the products and see goodies after goodie that I can have! And it's not filled with preservatives and fillers and msg! I'm so psyched to try everything! I'll give the juice to my kids though. :)

I think the best part is that I was introduced to 9 new companies that are world/environment/health minded. If I happen to not care for their stuff, no harm done, not much cash used. If I do like them though, what a pay off!

I would check this out for yourselves! Here's a link!
