Fair Trade + Charitable Subscription Box Gift Ideas
Updated for 2018!
We all know that subscription boxes are the best kind of ‘gift that keeps on giving’. 😉 But many of our favorite boxes not only give a monthly gift to the recipient, they also give back through charity donations, fair trade production policies, and more. What could be a better gift than a great subscription box that also supports a great cause?
Editor’s Note: Lots of boxes support charities, many more than we can fit here! These are some of our top picks and those that have information about their charity programs easily available online.
CAUSEBOX, for the socially-conscious consumer

Many featured brands donate a portion of proceeds to charities and/or may employ local artisans, use ethically-sourced goods, and more. $54.95/quarter with free shipping (discounted price for annual subscribers).
