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!
Upcycled Tote, Ghana (Retail $15).
This tote is made from upcycled plastic bags. I love that it comes in a zippered pouch, and because it is plastic, I feel like this could be a great shopping or beach tote! Here it is unzipped:
Brass Bottle Stopper, South Africa (Retail $10)
Zambeezi Lip Balm, Zambia (Retail $3).
This month, subscribers could pick between this brass bottle stopper or the signature GlobeIn basket. I hope they continue having these options in the future – I think it’s great for people who may have all the baskets they need!
And this wine stopper is SO cute:
This organic beeswax lip balm is great, too. It’s very moisturizing, and I love the lemongrass scent.
Hand Blown Glass, Mexico (Retail $15)
The iridescence of glass is gorgeous. Since you can use this as a glass or a vase, I imageine some subscribers may be swapping to get a set! I’ll be using this as a vase personally.
It could work as a desk accessory too:
(Note to self – buy flowers for vase pictures!)
Conscious Coconut Oil, Thailand (Retail $15).
I love the design of this packaging with the blue colors and wooden cap! I do wish that the tube opening was larger though – it’s a bit of a stuggle getting the coconut oil out of the tube!
But I guess I’m not the only one with that issue, since they included tips for dealing with your “sassy” coconut oil:
I love that this is 100% organic coconut oil. It’s a great moisturizer, cuticle cream, hair oil, etc.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $58. 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’ll use every single item this month, too!
