Sustainable eco-friendly subscription boxes include ideas for restocking your cabinets with low-waste cleaning products, reusable food storage solutions, clean personal care items, and cruelty-free clean beauty products. In most cases, subscribing to these boxes means not only supporting small businesses, it also means you'll be on your way to living green while cutting down on single-use products, plastic waste, and your carbon footprint. Read on to see how these environmentally conscious and zero-waste subscription boxes are innovating across industries for the planet.

I’ve been getting the Love Goodly box for a few years now. I love it! With an exclamation point! My only complaints are 1) the shipping is free but takes fooooorever to arrive and 2) after so long, they have repeated items a few times. That’s not a real complaint because I happen to like the items. I just don’t wear enough makeup or have a real beauty routine, so my stash keeps getting bigger. I do love knowing I can experiment with everything in the box. The first box I ever got changed my life- because I didn’t know I was allergic to mascara. I thought it was just itchy and I had to deal. But not anymore. I might eat meat, but my face is vegan.

I agree there’s definitely a little shock with that one! For some I can see it being a worthwhile investment if they’re looking for an elevated shaving experience. Plus, much less plastic than disposables! But there are some other great refillable razor alternatives—we compare a few of them in this post:

I own the razor and the rose gold has chipped off. It could be because I’ve had problems with the razor getting rusty or it could be a quality issue, I’m not sure. But I probably wouldn’t repurchase.

I tried the GreenUP box recently and absolutely loved it. The products are definitely something I will use and it makes me feel good to use them. Unfortunately its a little too expensive for me to keep as a subscription but I would definitely get this box again when I had funds.
