This box comes with an info booklet – the first page is a letter explaining the theme. Inside each maker and their products are detailed. There’s also details about the fair trade practices, community support initiatives, etc. – it is a feel-good read!
Wooden Photo Frame, Turkey – Value $15
This wood has a rustic/raw quality to it, and I think that goes perfectly with the simple design. I imagine this will work well with most decor styles!
Wooden Pencil Cup, Turkey – Value $15
I think this is my favorite item in the box – I’m always happy with simple and clean designs! Here is a closer look at the wood grain:
Undated Weekly Planner by Marie Mae Co. – Value $18
Since this planner was sent out in a March box, I’m very happy to see it is undated. Here it is out of the packaging:
I like the cover, but my first thought was, “I miss that beautiful print!”
Fortunately, it appears again inside:
And here is a look a the weekly planner pages:
Elephant Poo Bookmark, Sri Lanka – Value $3
This isn’t the first time GlobeIn has sent Mr. Ellie Pooh paper! (Check out the July GlobeIn review, too!)
If you aren’t familiar with this paper:
All of our paper products are 100% recycled. They are made up of 30% fiber from elephant dung and 70% post consumer paper. There are no toxic chemicals used in our paper making process. Natural vegetative binding agents, along with water-soluble salt dyes for coloring are used. Mr. Ellie Pooh’s papers are handmade, acid free and as organic as it gets.
Compared to using virgin wood, paper made with 100% recycled content uses 44% less energy, produces 38% less greenhouse gas emissions, 41% less particulate emissions, 50% less wastewater, 49% less solid waste, and—of course—100% less forest destruction.
Palm Leaf Basket – Value $12
Each box comes with some of the contents packaged in a palm leaf basket – they’re great for storage!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $62. I think that’s good for a subscription box that focuses on fair trade and giving back. And as always, GlobeIn impresses me with their themes and curation each month!
I really love the two wooden pieces this month. What do you think of the March 2016 GlobeIn Artisan box?
