The theme for the upcoming GlobeIn April 2016 Box is… Spring Clean!

More from GlobeIn:

Wake up, Winter Bears!

Our mission this month is to get you geared up (literally) for the big spring clean, and maybe  even…excited for it? For starters, let’s do some re-framing. Forget tedious chore and think sanctified ritual—you certainly wouldn’t be alone in doing so.

In Iran, for example, the March 21st vernal equinox signals the new year, and involves the  tradition of “shaking the house” — use your imagination. And in China, sweeping the house at  the new year is considered a way of sweeping out any bad luck that may have accumulated in the  past one.

No matter where you are in the world, the opening of tiny new buds in spring suggests a chance  to start fresh. We hope the items in this months box help you to invite a sense of spaciousness into the home in which to nurture whatever fragile, fledgling life you find winking and hopeful beneath the pile of last year.

The latest spoiler is:

In April all Artisan Box subscribers will have an option to receive an Upcycled Container from Cambodia (Retail Value $10) instead of the regular GlobeIn Signature Basket.

In other words, each Spring Clean Box will come either with a Palm Leaf Basket or an Upcycled Container. Colors will vary.

Measurements: 5.5″ tall by 6″ wide.

Suggested use: Clear up that cabinet under the sink or shelf in the garage by consolidating all your cleaning materials into this bright and roomy vessel. Or, use as an indoor planter to bring some spring into the home!

And in case you missed the first spoiler:

Fabric Wall Organizer from Peru (Retail Value $30).

In the Sacred Valley of the Peruvian Andes, the village of Wanchaq receives a steady stream of tourists, yet disabled residents of the region find themselves cut off from this line of income, and from society in general.

Unable to use his feet, artisan Freddy Flores sews with one hand and moves the sewing machine pedal with the other. Freddy is a member of ASWAN, an organization dedicated to promoting education, entrepreneurship, and social integration among the disabled of the region. Membership allows Freddy and his fellow artisans the opportunity to exchange ideas and to teach each other new skills.

In the future, ASWAN envisions establishing a rehabilitation center for disabled persons, which would be the first of its kind in the country.

  1. Just a heads up everyone, the fabric for the planter containers look like the same material as the upcycled laundry bags from before. I used my laundry tote for my knitting supplies, and hung it on a hook in my den. Well it dyed the wall purple, so I had my building repaint the wall. Long story short, don’t put it straight on the window sill without something underneath it. Lol.

  2. I love the idea of the up-cycled container as another choice for the basket, and I think the Wall Organizer is beautiful (though it doesn’t really work with my decor.) That being said, however, I can’t help but feel that these two spoilers are a bit of a stretch for the Spring Cleaning theme… They are items that can work with many other themes just as much/if not more than they do with this theme. Neither spoiler seems to match the description they give for the theme either, except maybe in the last paragraph speaking about spaciousness. But then why isn’t the theme Organization if spaciousness is what they are focusing on?

    Based off of the description, I would have expected them to include something from the countries they listed related to their Spring Cleaning rituals, like a small hand broom, scrub brush, or duster nodding to the Chinese tradition, or something to represent Iran’s “shaking of the house”. I’m holding onto hope that the next spoiler, and really any the remaining items, fall more in line with the theme, because while these two spoilers are nice, they don’t exactly ring “Spring Cleaning” to me.

    But not everything can be a win for me, I’m sure there are plenty of others who love this box and think it fits perfectly, I just don’t see the connection myself.

  3. I was really excited about this theme and re-subbed with the coupon for the Turkish towel. I’m hoping they release another spoiler soon, I’m not really feeling either of these. The wall hanging is cute but the colors don’t work in any room in my house.

    • I am guessing the wall hanging will come in different colors-+

  4. I’m sticking with the basket, I think — but the upcycled container is cool.

  5. I love the baskets but I’m going to have to get this upcycled container this month! I love the potted plants in them!
    And I’ll have to keep an eye out to see if I can swap for some more 🙂

  6. These upcycled containers are so cool! But I love my baskets… not sure which one I’m going to choose.

    • I think I am going with the upcycled container as I know I will get more baskets in the future and I am not sure how long the container will be available.

      • Yeah, I think I’m going to have to do the same. I don’t want to miss out!

  7. Did you notice that the suggested use for the Cambodian container was to clean out all of my cleaning supplies and put them into this container. ..This five and one half inch tall, six inch wide container!!? lol!

    • I noticed! Maybe three bottles will fit in, that’s all. LOL. And no handle on the container for toting around.

      But the fabric wall organizer is gorgeous!

    • I was thinking this would be perfect for storing wet sponges, brushes, etc., to dry.

      Or maybe in the laundry room? Looks good with the laundry bag from a few months back…
