I recently received a Conscious Box in the mail to preview and when the kids and I opened it we felt like we were so excited. Conscious Box is a new subscription service that in their words, “[I]s a monthly delivery of pure and sustainable products that are handpicked from businesses that care for the planet.”
I was impressed by the efficient packaging of the Conscious Box. So often when I receive something in the mail I am dumbfounded by all of the extra packaging that accompanies the product. In speaking with Jameson Morris, the Conscious Executive Officer at Conscious Box (and Founder of Organic Soul), I was impressed to learn that they focused a great deal of time on the packaging for the actual box.
“We had been developing the box for over 4 months and spent a long time trying to find a ‘conscious’ manufacturer. The boxes are made from 100% recycled material and manufactured, wind powered facility, and printed using sustainable vegetable inks!”
I have reviewed other monthly subscription services before (click here for my review of blissmobox), however Conscious box differs from other monthly subscription services in that the actual box is smaller than other similar programs. According to Jameson, Conscious Box purposefully made a smaller box because they didn’t want to ship out a ton of full size products every month. The theory behind their decision to create a smaller box stems from the fact that they truly are trying to be as conscious as possible. Since their customers will be “sampling” the products, there is always a chance that they may not like a certain product and if they had mailed out a full sized product to that customer the product would go unused and would be wasted.
The purpose behind the Consious Box is for the customer to discover new products that they like and will in turn purchase for themselves.
We definitely enjoyed sampling products in the Conscious Box and definitely found some that we will purchase. It was fun to receive a box that had food samples as well as body care samples.
