A Green Gift: Conscious Box Review and Giveaway

Writing a blog has some fun perks.

Once in a while, I make a few dollars, and every so often, I get a free product to try out. That’s fun. But, the true treasures are found when I happen upon a new friend–a fellow conscientious greenie. No matter what your priorities are, life can get a little lonely when you don’t know many people who share them, so finding like-minded friends…well, it’s a gift.

So, when Jameson Morris contacted me to try out his new offering, the Conscious Box, I jumped at the chance. It was apparent to me right from the get-go that Jameson is 100% dedicated to introducing his customers to the best in eco-friendly, conscientiously and sustainably produced products. There’s no greenwashing here…the concept behind the Conscious Box is from the heart.

What is the Conscious Box?

“Conscious Box is a monthly delivery of pure and sustainable products that are handpicked from businesses that care for the planet.” These products are carefully vetted by the folks at Conscious Box, and meet their strict criteria. A pretty, seasonally decorated box arrives at your doorstep, complete with an inspirational, heartfelt message and filled with sample sizes of pure and natural products from ethical businesses you can trust.

Sounds like a fun thing to find in the mail, huh?

I received the November and December boxes to review. Honestly, I was a little skeptical at first. Samples sizes don’t excite me all that much. I guess I just feel like you don’t get much of a chance to really try a product from a tiny sample. Well, when the boxes arrived, I found that these were no tiny samples. Many of the products seemed nearly full size, and the ones that weren’t were still generous enough to really give them a good try.

Here’s the November box:

…and December:

I couldn’t possibly provide a thorough review of all the products I received – there were too many of them! But I can tell you that there were several that I already purchased faithfully, and a few that have become new favorites.

Good Earth lollipops, Honest Kids organic juice pouches, Kind fruit and nut bars, Eat Cleaner wipes, Justin’s nut butter – they were all staples in our home already, and I was happy to see them among my Conscious Box loot. (A huge sign that Jameson and I are most definitely on the same page.)

Several new products that piqued my interest, and then FAR surpassed my expectations, include BerryPlus laundry soap (made from soapberries!) and EarthFriendly Products cinnamon-scented room freshener spray. Love, love, love…LOVE!! Scented products are one thing that many toxin-conscious folks miss, and I was thrilled to be able to spray and scent my living room (and cinnamon is my #1 favorite scent!) SCORE! These two will definitely be joining my regular arsenal of household products. :D

I saw a few differences in the 2 boxes I received, and they told me a lot. The November box was great, but the December box was even better. More products, bigger samples, coupons…that tells me that the folks at Conscious Box are working hard to find more and more companies to share with their subscribers, and they are succeeding. This is a company focused on growth, so, in my opinion, this is the time to subscribe. I would bet that these monthly deliveries are only going to get better and better! :)

  2. I would like to see healthy snacks for kids

  4. Hi! I would love to see eco-friendly household products and more raw, vegan treats. Love this concept!

  5. domestic diva says:

    I’d like to find Heil Merry macaroons.

  6. I’ve been on the hunt for eco-friendly/vegan home fragrance items such as candles, sprays, wall oil warmers, etc. I’d love to see something along those lines! :)

  7. Anne E. Perry says:

    more vegan chocolate

  8. Robin Sayers says:

    I’m always looking for eco-friendly household cleaners and beauty products. Looks like they have a good mixture/ variety of types of products to try in each box. What a neat idea!

  9. Crystal Wendling says:

    I’m vegan and most of the items in this basket look like something I’ll be able to use. I would love to win this box and share it with my boyfriend. It’s our 3 year anniversary this month. ^_^

  10. I just received my first Conscious Box (it was a gift from a friend) and I absolutely loved it! All of the products are so pure and great smelling.

  11. I love learning about new eco-friendly products. I’d love to see Badger Balm or Crazy Rumors featured in a Conscious Box; they’re some of my favorite organic skin care products.

  12. Kim Henrichs says:

    What a great site! I would love to see more health and beauty products. :)

  13. I’d like to see any of the artisana butters! Yum!

  14. Maria Forry says:

    I would love to see a liquid bath soap and laundry detergent.

  15. I would like to see items for kids in the boxes. I worry about finding the best brands for my boys.

  16. I would like to see high protein/low sugar organic snacks of any kind that taste great-need these for health purposes. PS My sample that I sent for teh December box in was covered up by blue tissue paper in this picture. Bummer. :(

  17. I’ve signed up for so many subscriptions in the past 2 weeks but Conscious Box is definitely one I want to try as soon as possible.

  18. Wpuld love to try the room spray…sounds lovely!

  19. Smell is a huge thing for me. I love for my home to smell nice, and the only way that I feel I can do that is to burn essential oils… however that tends to get a little pricey and I dont always want to burn a candle to heat the oil. So… I would love to see candles and room sprays that are non toxic in the box! As well as vegetarian and vegan sweets, cuz I have a sweet tooth :).

  20. Lori Davis says:

    Healthy snacks!

  21. Taylor Webb says:

    I love awesome scents for the home!

  22. I love this!! Thanks for sharing!!

  23. Shanna Rodgers says:

    How about some organic shampoo?!

  24. I would love to see things for my children to snack on and healthy shampoos and sunscreens for them. It’s nice to try a sample of something first to see how it works before you buy an entire box/jar, only to find out it isn’t as expected. I love the idea of this!

  25. Amy Davidson says:

    I would love to see more fair trade, organic and vegan products in the box. Maybe some Endangered Species chocolate too…

  26. LaTanya Thornhill says:

  30. Linda Ondreicka says:

    How about eco friendly products for small pets. Or, snacks that kids would enjoy.
