What if you could make a single purchase that would empower and employ women, feed the hungry, educate the underprivileged, and provide education, clean water, and hope for victims of abuse all at the same time? I know you’re thinking “that would be amazing” but what is amazing is CAUSEBOX because it does all of these things for men, women, and children around the world and more.
CAUSEBOX is a quarterly subscription box for women that includes products from companies that are making a difference around the world. All products are socially conscious meaning that they give back to underprivileged communities, provide jobs and sustainable income in underdeveloped areas of the world, raise awareness for different charitable initiatives, and empower individuals. They aim to make the world a better place because all products that are featured in CAUSEBOX are made ethically.
There are amazing stories about the impact CAUSEBOX has had around the world. The CAUSEBOX Blog does an incredible job featuring the companies whose products make their way into the box and into our homes. It’s great to get to know the people whose products are featured in CAUSEBOX each quarter because being able to put faces to the items in the box makes you realize exactly how much your CAUSEBOX purchase helps others.
What’s Inside CAUSEBOX
Part of the joy of getting a subscription box is the anticipation of the box arriving in the mail but nothing compares to the delight of opening it up and seeing the contents for the first time. Whether it’s your first CAUSEBOX or you’ve been with them since the beginning (they started almost 2 years ago!), CAUSEBOX never disappoints!
Here’s a peek at the delightful things you’ll find for you and your home when you open up the the beautiful green leaf print Fall CAUSEBOX designed by nine year old, Jasmine, from Harlem, NY:
Handmade Apron by Liz Alig
You know my love of Haiti runs deep and how I strongly believe in sustainable job programs that lift communities up out of poverty so when I pulled out the Liz Alig apron and saw the tag that said is made from upcycled dress shirts by women artisans in Haiti and Ghana, I was immediately smitten. This apron is a huge upgrade from the one that I’ve had in my kitchen forever whose stains are like battle scars from past cooking adventures. I love how soft it is and it’s absolutely gorgeous thanks to the combination of blue patterns used in the design and the row of ruffles down the front. It’s a fine upgrade from my old apron and I am proud to wear it with the knowledge that it supports women in Haiti and Ghana.
Lucky Iron Fish
Did you know that there is a global iron deficiency epidemic that affects nearly 3.5 billion people? The Lucky Iron Fish is a palm-sized iron fish that is designed to increase iron content in your meals. Simply put it in a pot of boiling water and it releases iron as it heats up, boosting your iron intake and preventing anemia. For every Lucky Iron Fish sold, the company gives one to a family in need for free thanks to their buy-one-give-one program.
Tea Traveler Pack from Hobbs Tea
I love coffee but I also love tea and when the weather cools, it’s tea drinking season in our house so I loved the Tea Traveler Pack from Hobbs Tea. Each colorful package contains organic, handcrafted, whole tea leaves in bleach and nylon free bags that are hand packed in Haleiwa, Hawaii and brew between 2-7 cups of tea. The Tea Traveler Pack contains an assortment of teas that range from caffeine free to high caffeine.
Small Creative Sac from Urbana Sacs
The best thing about the Creative Sac is that it can be whatever you need it to be, making this recycled, washable paper storage container incredibly versatile.
Dogeared Jewelry by Balance Necklace
There is beauty in the most simple things and Dogeared’s Balance Collection is no exception. This bar necklace is small enough to be minimalistic but gorgeous enough to be noticed hanging delicately around your neck. Plus it’s handmade sustainably and ethically in Los Angeles by a pioneer of social enterprise.
Fall CAUSEBOX Exclusive Print by Jenessa Wait
Sometimes we all need a little reminder to be grateful for the things in our life and this rose gold foil hand lettered “Find the good and praise it” print is perfectly sized to frame and put in a place you’ll always see it as a constant reminder.
6-pack of Thank You Cards from Gramr Gratitude Co.— It is always worth taking the time to hand write a thank you note especially when you have gorgeous notecards from Gramr Gratitude Co. The gold foil thank you is simply stated elegance that is the perfect way to say thank you to anyone for anything and your recipient will love getting your expression of thanks on a card made in Los Angeles.
