This is the info card that was included with this package. It details the items included this month, plus gives a bit of the back story on the businesses that provided them. This month’s theme is “Keepin’ It Green!” I love that theme and that aspect of the PNW!
Air Plant and Tree Stump Holder – Value $16
I love this so much! I love air plants, but mine used to die all the time because I didn’t really know how to take care of them. I am excited to try again! The stump holder is also just perfect! I’ve been trying to feng shui my house lately, and I need more living things. (No more pets or kids or husbands, though, please.)
Marimo in a bottle – Value $12
Yep, it’s a tiny ball of algae. It’s called a Morimo, meaning algae ball in Japanese, and it’s supposed to bring good luck. My sons and I filled the little bottle with water and set it in indirect sunlight. That’s all we have to do besides change the water every week or so. How simple is that? The first picture also shows the instructions for both this and the air plant.
Upcycled Glass by NuvoGlas – Value $8
This drinking glass is made from recycled glass and the rim has been fire polished to help prevent chipping. It seems kind of ordinary, but I really like the small imperfections that give it a slight wavy look here and there.
I swear since I swore off sugar my emergency chocolate stash has grown huge and super fancy thanks to subscription boxes! Theo Chocolates are organic and fair trade, and I’m sure they’re delicious.
Banner Tote by P. Soup Handmade – Value $15
Check out this tote bag! It’s made from recycled banners! I just love it. It’s roomy, and I’m guessing since it was a banner it must be vinyl. It seems very durable! I also love that it has a bit of a cityscape on it, and that it says “surveillance.” It’s so different! I think this might be my new favorite tote.
Verdict: Rain City knocked it out of the park with me this month! My husband gets nothing! OK, we can share the glass. I love the theme, and everything was really well curated. My favorites were the bag and the air plant, but I think the Morimo is super cool, and I appreciate all the recycling, upcycling, fair trade, organic, and other green work that went into this box. This is totally my cup of tea. Additionally, the value this month totals $55, which is great for a $35 box!
