Causes Crate (formerly Hart’s Handmade Bee Box) is a monthly recurring subscription focused on delivering handmade products that are all-natural and/or organic and free of harmful and harsh chemicals. Causes Crate lets you choose one of four causes (Rainforest Alliance, World Wildlife Fund, Earth Justice, or The Honeybee Conservatory) to donate a portion of your subscription or your purchase.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Each month’s box had a special theme. August’s theme is “Summer Wind Down.” The card lists the items in the box along with their retail value but I also received a separate paper describing the items.
Along with the name change, Causes Crate now has a new website and updated other items related to their subscriptions. Here are the changes:
- Subscribers get to choose from 4 different causes to which a portion of their subscription will be donated.
- They are instituting a rewards program.
- More money from each subscription (every single month’s purchase) is going toward a cause.
I love the Causes Crate truly believes in making a difference and helping their subscribers donate too. Their website reads, “By purchasing our products you will know that you have done your part. Whether it be a donation made each month via our subscription box, or wearing that t-shirt you purchased with pride!” Causes Crate also sells other products now, such as t-shirts, yoga pants and watches. Their designs are super cool!
One of the benefits of this box is that some items can only be found in the monthly Causes Crate. If you really like a product in your box, there is a Product Refill page where you can request more.
All products are handmade by Causes Crate so the prices listed come from the Causes Crate card insert.
Causes Crate also included information about their Rainforest Alliance which shows they are a company committed to creating “healthy landscapes and strong communities” which I think is pretty great.
Beach Hair Don’t Care: Sea Salt Beach Wave Hair Spray – Listed Value $10.00
I have wavy hair in some places so this sea salt spray is something I will use regularly to aid my curls along. This product smells like vanilla and coconut which is great for summer!
Argan Oil Leave-In Conditioner – Listed Value $15.00
I pretty much have every leave in oil known to man and I know it’s strange but I’m happy to get more. I like argan oil mixed with other oils to keep my bleached ends from looking dry. This spray smells sweet and yummy.
Flip Flop Feet Beeswax Balm Roll-on - Listed Value $10.00
I must be a soul mate with the curator(s) of Causes Crate. I typically purchase all the products they send in their box and am happy to get more because I use them so much. This foot roll on is yet another staple in my house so I’m thrilled to try their creation. The minty smell is wonderful and the roll-on is thick and oily which is what I like from my foot creams/rubs.
Diffuser Necklace w/ Extras - Listed Value $28.00
The quality of this necklace is fabulous and I love that Causes Crate included an extender and additional pads. The scent in the pad Causes Crate sent is citrusy and summery. My daughter loves when I wear this necklace as she can grab it (much to my chagrin) and take a big whiff.
Verdict: I really love the products I receive in Causes Crate each month. This is one of my favorite subscriptions since I’ve almost always use and enjoy all items I receive. Their products are well made and the packaging and curation of the box are impressive. I loved opening the box, taking everything out and trying it – it is a treat for the senses. This box would make a fabulous gift! Everyone I know would like it and both my mother and sister have signed up for the box since seeing mine.
Causes Crate promises no less than $45 dollars’ worth of products in The Biggest Box and this month they delivered $63 worth of great products for a $36 box. For the quality of the items I consistently receive the value is excellent for me. If you are looking for high quality, super smelling, handmade, natural products, then look no further and try this box!
