GIVEAWAY: Conscious Box

4.29.2013


Every so often I am approached by a company or individual about using this blog to promote their product. I almost always hit delete or say no. It's hard to tell who is credible and who isn't sometimes. I talk about companies and products I like all the time, but to date the only giveaway I've done was for Light Gives Heat and I sought them out on my own. Finding out they had a program for bloggers to do a giveaway was just a bonus.

But I recently received an inquiry that piqued my interest because it was a company I was familiar with. Conscious Box is a website that exclusively sells "planet friendly" products such as things that are GMO-Free, biodegradable, fair trade, organic, recycled, vegan or cruelty-free. If you have strong convictions about your products then it might be a good resource (as is vine.com and fairtradeusa.org by the way).

What has always kept me from trying Conscious Box out is the fact that it's a monthly subscription. Kind of like a fruit of the month club (or something similar and less sitcom-y) you subscribe for a monthly fee and a box of new products to try shows up on your doorstep every month. Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of subscriptions. Just like a magazine subscription the idea of getting a package full of surprise goodies every month sounds incredibly fun. But it's always fallen into the "one more monthly payment" category and I haven't felt I could justify doing it.

But now I have an excuse! Conscious Box approached me and offered to let me try out their products free for a month and also are letting me give away a free month to a reader! The exchange is basically that they get their name out there with the giveaway and though not mandatory, I'll be sure to review their products and give you my honest opinion when I get my conscious box in the mail.


So there you have it! My second giveaway is here! :) Since my readership is limited your odds are pretty good so I encourage you to enter! It's obligation free (aka you're not going to get roped into a monthly subscription if you win) and they're a credible company (they're featured in this Forbes article along with some other pretty cool subscription companies), check them out for yourself at www.consciousbox.com

  1. I definitely find that Organic products are really important to me. It's sometimes hard for me to even trust the organic label, but I do the best I can in the budget I have for these items:) The reason why organic is so important to me is because I can't stand all the chemicals that are approved by the FDA and put in our food and body products. It's really scary, and the most I can do to protect my family from those things, I will do:)

  15. Fair Trade products are becoming more and more important to me, with work conditions in some places being so poor that a garment factory can collapse and kill hundreds of people making clothes for major brands.
