I realize I have not blogged about my CAUSEBOX in quite some time… I haven’t stopped receiving them! I think I just always forget to share because I’m SO EXCITED to receive in the mail. Woops!! Well, the Fall 2017 CAUSEBOX was so awesome (I actually did a live unboxing on Facebook… which I want to try to do more of!), so I wanted to share it with you guys here, too! And don’t forget, you can use the coupon code “stillbeingmolly” for $10 off your first CAUSEBOX subscription!
For those of you that DON’T know, you may be wondering: What is CAUSEBOX?
CAUSEBOX is a quarterly subscription box that is filled with a very intentionally and seasonally curated selection of socially conscious products that are all from companies with hearts to change the world. What does that mean, exactly? Well, it means that every single piece that you receive inside the box is produced or sold by a company / brand / group / organization that is doing everything they can to make a positive impact on the world.
Every single product inside of every single CAUSEBOX helps to provide dignified jobs, meals, education, clean water, and MORE to countless men, women, and children across the globe. Additionally, CAUSEBOX has been able to donate over 20,000 (yes, TWENTY THOUSAND) meals and been able to support artisan groups in every corner of the world.
HOW AWESOME IS THAT?
Now, let’s see what’s inside the Fall 2017 CAUSEBOX…
Every CAUSEBOX comes with a “Good News” magazine which has a lot of amazing background on each brand and company featured. I love hearing the stories behind each product! That’s part of what makes this box so unique.
BADALA – KUNI UTENSIL SET ($18 retail value)
These GORGEOUS handcrafted olive wood utensils are made in KENYA! They are so stunning and I love the pop of painted color on the ends of them. They’re very sturdy and would be perfect for salads, cooking, or just looking gorrrrgeous in your kitchen! I love them!
JIMANI COLLECTIONS – TATU TRIANGLE NECKLACE ($35 retail value)
Oh I LOVE this long, classy necklace. It’s a great neutral piece that will go with any and everything! Jimani Collections employs women in Nairobi, Kenya, and it is made from materials that would have otherwise been discarded and wasted. The pendant is made out of upcycled bone that is collected by local farmers! Note: The bone used in this necklace was reclaimed and sourced from animals that died of natural causes.
MR. B’S NECESSITIES – AROMATHERAPY ROLL-ONS ($49.95 retail value)
Y’all know my love for essential oils! This is a set of 5 Aromatherapy Roll-Ons from Mr. B’s Necessities! They use all-natural, plant-based, 100% therapeutic grade essential oils – and they are handmade and formulated by a certified aromatherapist. Woohoo!
NISOLO LUGGAGE TAG ($18 retail value)
We are headed on a trip later this month and I can’t wait to use this gorgeous leather luggage tag! Every luggage tag is made out of leftover leather shoe scraps in Trujillo, Peru. Hooray for repurposing what could have been trash! Nisolo is a well known luxury lifestyle and shoe brand and is one of the AMAZING key voices leading the fight against the damaging effects of fast fashion.
MELA ARTISANS – CHEVRON 4″ X 6″ PHOTO FRAME ($50 retail value) and “BOLD” ART PRINT by Caterina Bianchini ($5 retail value)
Y’all…. this is SO GORGEOUS. This 4″ x 6″ picture frame was handmade in Sambhal, India by Mela Artisans. It is so special and honors and preserves the timeless handiwork of bone, wood, and horn craftsmen. All the bone that is delicately hand arranged, was sourced from animals that have died of natural causes — which honors for an ancient ritual for the Indian people of remembering the animals long after their natural life. Each frame comes with a complementary two-sided art print, designed by award winning artist (and Fall Box designer) Caterina Bianchini. How gorgeous?? I love the colors!!!!
CATERINA BIANCHINI – REFRIGERATOR ART MAGNET SET ($10 retail value)
My kids are so excited about these! This refrigerator magnet set was designed by award winning artist (and Fall Box designer) Caterina Bianchini. The abstract shapes are inspired by the countries where the Fall Box products were made — and every set comes with an assortment of kiss-cut letters! Lilly is already excited about what words she is going to make. Haha!
