GlobeIn May 2016 Box Spoiler #3 + Free Towel Set Coupon!
The theme for the upcoming GlobeIn May 2016 Box is… Hydrate!
More from GlobeIn:
We are thrilled to share that we have partnered with Water.org, a nonprofit that pioneers safe water and sanitation solutions around the world for our May Artisan Box.
On this blue planet, water is the ultimate elixir. Everything is better that’s hydrated—your body, your mood, your pets, your plants. This month’s kit offers your hydration efforts both practicality and pizazz.
Of course, water is no luxury—it’s a basic human right. So it seemed appropriate to partner up this month with Water.org, an organization working to bring safe water to all 663 million people around the world who currently lack it. This month, your drink is also someone else’s.
And here is the latest spoiler:
In May all Artisan Box subscribers will have an option to receive a Brass Bottle Stopper from South Africa (Retail Value $10) instead of the regular GlobeIn Signature Basket.
Bottle stopper designs will vary. All May baskets will come in blue to compliment the Hydrate theme.
Our lovable African animal Bottle Stoppers will be the star at your next get together. Each bottle stopper is cast from zinc and electroplated with an antique brass finish by a fair trade casting company in Cape Town, South Africa.
Suggested use: Use in opened wine or olive oil bottles—or wherever it fits!
Measurements: 1.5″L, 1″W, 2″T
And here are the first two spoilers:
Upcycled Tote, Ghana (Retail $15).
Your tote is made by artisans from upcycled plastic bags in which Ghanaians receive their drinking water – keeping the bags off the streets. Both roomy and compact, it will become your go-to tote for going to yoga, beach, or farmers market!
Suggested use: Use as an eco-friendly shopping bag or as a roomy day bag.
1) Hand Blown Mexican Glass (Retail $15).
Few art forms will put you in as much awe at earth’s materials and their chemical processes as hand blown glass. What was once a hot and incoherent blob is now your cool and smooth new drinking vessel.
It takes a talented artisan indeed to form molten glass into elegant, coherent shapes. Many such artisans live in the city of Tonala? in the Mexican state of Jalisco, a handicraft hub, especially of pottery and glass.
Dedicated to preserving this artform, Cristaluc was established in 2001 and today employs 40 local artisans. The company provides its artisans a steady income and a supportive and inspiring space to practice their art. The process of making your new glass involved 8 to 14 glassmakers working as team.
Despite its hot and blob-like beginnings, we hope your vessel brings you (or your flowers) some cool, clarifying moments.
Suggested use: Drink out of it, or use as a vase.
Measurements: 5-1/4″ height.

GlobeIn is offering an exclusive subscription deal just for My Subscription Addiction readers!
Your towel set will be matching, and it will come in either royal blue, purple or turquoise. (I received this towel in the January GlobeIn box, and it is great! It is a big bath towel – I think it would be great as an oversized beach towel. It measures 39 x 67 in (100 x 170 cm) and is made with 100% cotton.)
