Have you seen the many monthly box subscriptions for make-up and beauty (and food!) products? I ran across an eco-friendly service called Conscious Box that sends a box of trial size eco products for consumers to try. It sounded intriguing so I did a search to see what other bloggers were saying and what the boxes contained. I also wanted to see what the heck kind of company this was.
I’ve pulled some info from their website and FAQ:
Conscious Box is a monthly service that seeks to introduce subscribers to the best businesses in the world. Each month we curate our boxes with products that support healthy living, sustainability, social responsibility, and more conscious living.
We strategically use products that fit in a smaller box, and we even work out the position and weight of each product every month. This helps us maximize the use of space, keeping our shipping as efficient as possible. Based on relative size, Conscious Box is able to bulk-ship about twice as many boxes as less mindful subscription services. This makes a major difference in the pursuit of our own sustainable business practices.
Here is what a sample box looks like:
(NOTE: This is NOT the December box.)
Is this tempting you yet?
This is a great idea to introduce folks to new products as well as “old” products already in stores. I see that the December box has a bag of Chimes ginger chews. (I am addicted to ginger chews!)
I sent a gift subscription out to a friend of mine for the holidays. She’s the ultimate recycler. In fact, she’s a Master Recycler. I’m looking forward to hear her thoughts about this business and the box! (And I’m pretty sure she doesn’t read this blog so she won’t know it’s coming to her! Yeah!)
If you want your own box, it’s $12/month plus $7 shipping. You can do a monthly, 3-month or 6-month subscription. You can gift a subscription – perfect for you procrastinating holiday shoppers (read: me).
The good people of Conscious Box have offered a COMPLIMENTARY December box for my blog readers! That’s right – you can have your own box of goodies to try! One winner is going to get a December Conscious Box shipped directly out to you.

Deadline to get your entry in: Tuesday, December 20, 11:59PM PST

The fine print: December holiday box provided by Conscious Box, the sponsor. Views expressed here are my own honest opinion.
