The box comes with a fold out card including a letter from the GlobeIn team and backgrounds on each of the makers featured in the box. The theme this month is Bake!
Alter Ego Organic Cane Sugar – Value $9.50
This cane sure is organic, fair trade, and I love the vanilla/caramel notes. (Yes – I sampled it straight out of the bag!)
Kelapo Coconut Oil (3 packets) – Value $2?
Another organic and fair trade item! I use coconut oil for cooking frequently, so these will go to use soon!
Better World Brownie Mix – Value $6.75
Big Dipper Wax Works Birthday Candles – Value $5
GlobeIn recommends making these brownies with the coconut oil included. I can’t enjoy these since they contain gluten, but it might make for a good Mother’s Day baked treat!
And I love Big Dipper Wax Works – I didn’t even realized they made birthday candles! (They are 100% beeswax)
These are handmade in India, and support giving women a living wage. They work for cleaning and scrubing, and I think they would also work great for pot holders or trivets.
Palm Leaf Basket – Value $12
Each box comes with some of the contents packaged in a palm leaf basket. (I think I get a different color each month – they’re great for storage).
Verdict: I think GlobeIn has been doing a great job of putting together themed boxes that are fun and also useful. I’ll use everything in the box, and the fair trade aspect of this subscription is wonderful. The retail value of this box is about $45, and I think that’s good for the cost and the makers it supports.
