Product Review: November Conscious Box
When a group of 20-something long-time friends (Jameson Morris, 23, Jessie Richardson, 21, and Bjorn Borstleman, 23) decided partner up to help raise social responsibility, sustainability, and conserving the environment as a part of their business strategy, you take notice. You take notice of the fact that a.) They're driven and determined in their EARLY twenties and b.) They understand the significance of small businesses where
Enter, Conscious Box.
Although they would periodically partner with major league businesses, majority of the contents in Conscious Box highlight mom and pop operations whose products are not typically seen or readily available in grocery stores. Conscious Box is dedicated to introduce these smaller (often better) companies to the marketplace.
Taken directly from their site:
As they sent their first subscription boxes out to several homes across the country this month, I thought it was cool to be a part of their debut packages .
Personally, I love trying out new things. And if they are organic, natural, and sustainable - the better. It's always fun to try out and discover new finds that are not only kind to your body but kind to the planet. So, enough talking...I'm excited to try them out! h!
* Some items are organic and a few are natural products. I posted pictures of the the ingredients list in order for you to make a conscious decision as to which products works best for you. Enjoy! :)
|Love the fact that they encourage readers to recycle. :)|
Items I enjoyed:
Bodacious Banana Bread Walnutz ~Sweet Raw Food Nuts - It was hearty and crunchy, PLUS it has live enzymes which improves the immune system and digestive regularity. Enzyme support is important during the winter months. If your not a fan of yogurt,(for all my friends out there with weird "texture" issues) then...have one of these.
Mary's Gone Cracker's Chocolate Chip - It has just the right amount of crunch, chewy and sweet chocolate goodness. Yum!
Funky Monkey Pink Pineapple snack - Brass monkey - that funky monkey! Beastie Boys RULE! haha! But there was nothing brassy or junkie about this Funky Monkey. It was a fruity, crunchy, light snack that would satisfy your 3pm carb cravings. Cool enough to try, but on the fence with the flavor. Maybe if it were a different flavor...?
KIND Almond & Coconut snack bar - My favorite item in this box! My gold star snack! I was looking or another snack bar to alternate with my Pure Bars and I've found it! It had the right amount sweetness from the honey, crunchy from the almonds and coconut chewiness. Great way to satisfy your sweet tooth that's filled with protein and fiber. Score!
So, there you have it! I hope you enjoyed my Conscious Box review.
Until next time,
Laugh, Love, Live Positive
