CAUSEBOX Subscription Box Review – Spring 2015 #CAUSEBOX02
CAUSEBOX is a new subscription box from Sevenly that features brands and items dedicated to doing good all over the world. That means ethically sourced items, fair trade labor, etc. And as a subscriber you also get to select which charity you would like $7 of the purchase price of your box to go to!
The Subscription Box: CAUSEBOX
The Cost: $54.95 a quarter. ($49.95 a quarter if you pay for a year upfront).
The Products: In each box, you will receive at least $150 worth of products for women from Sevenly’s favorite socially conscious brands. They will also introduce a new, exclusive Sevenly product in each box. Everything inside the box reflects their belief that “People Matter.”
Ships to: US

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Perf Turkish Towel – Value $55
This is an exclusive item to the box, and probably my favorite. It is a very lightweight fabric (almost see through when you hold it up to the light) and I love the nautical stripe look. It isn’t as soft as I was expecting (compared to the POPSUGAR Turkish Towels I’ve received), but I’m guessing one time through the laundry should fix that.
Half United “Fighting Hunger” Necklace – Value $34
I have already received this necklace in a FabFitFun box, so I wasn’t too excited to see it in this box. I am very impressed with the Half United mission though – half their profits go to fighting hunger worldwide. I would have loved if they had included a different Half United item since this item was already in FabFitFun and since the bullet necklace is controversial for some. (Maybe we’ll see a bracelet from Half United in a future subscription box!)
Tribe Alive Bracelet – Retail Value $35
This is another exclusive item made for Causebox. I love the look of this bracelet and I may buy a few more for a stacked look. I’m not sure why this bracelet retails for $35, when the same bracelet with a clasp retails for $25. I’m guessing the price difference may be due to:
In honor of our favorite do-good brand $7 of every bracelet sold will be donated to our favorite non-profit partner, Mi Esperanza. Join the cause and then go check out our partners in hope at thewomenofmyhope.org to find out how you can get involved in their mission to alleviate poverty among women in Honduras.
Denik “Be The Change” Journal – Retail Value $17.99
This is another exclusive item for Causebox. A little more about Denik:
A portion from every notebook purchase goes to fund building schools in developing countries. We have teamed up with Pencils of Promise and Mali Rising to bring these schools to life.
Sevenly Today is a Good Day Cling – Retail Value $9.95
I like the message of this cling, and Sevenly encourages you to put it on your bathroom mirror, take a picture, and use the hashtag #sevenlyselfie for a chance to be on their instagram feed.
Smarty Pants Vitamins – 3 Samples
Good Spread Peanut Butter – Sample
I loved both of these! And they both do a 1 for 1 program donating vitamins and peanut butter to children in need with every purchase. The gummies are a great way to remember to take your vitamins if you have a sweet tooth, and the peanut butter is absolutely delicious! The addition of honey to the ingredients makes it such a treat!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $152. I think some of the retail values for the exclusive items may be a little inflated, but this box is definitely worth $55 to me, especially since $7 of that goes directly to charity, and the box itself is filled with items that support good! My favorite items in the box so far are the towel and the bracelet.
