CAUSEBOX Review--Info and Why You Need It

all items opened and shown below...keep reading!



I'm a HUGE fan of sub boxes (give me all the things!) but instead of just makeup or jewelry, what if you had a box that actually gave back? What if you knew the products you were receiving were involved with charities or benefitted organizations? Sound amazing? It is! You need to check out CAUSEBOX. I'm sharing their Summer Box.

What is CAUSEBOX? Why Do I Need It?

The CAUSEBOX is a seasonal selection of socially conscious products for women. This means products that: 

  • give back generously to underprivileged communities, 
  • help provide jobs and sustainable income in underdeveloped areas of the world, 
  • raise awareness for different charitable initiatives, 
  • and empower people, help people, or otherwise make the world a better place. 

7% of every box sold is given back to charity, each and every quarter, which really adds up – and if you choose--you have the option to pick from several charity partners.

  
How Much Is CAUSEBOX?

Every box has at least $150 of retail value, and sells for $49.95/quarter. This box has $233 value! 
 
I think it makes an excellent gift for yourself or others!

What's In It?


Keepcup 6oz To-Go Cup $17 Value
The world's first barista-standard reusable coffee cup. Made from non-toxic BPA and BPS-free polypropylene with a splash-proof seal. I've enjoyed taking this with me on my daily drive to work.


Everly Hydrating Drink Mixes
How about a little something to put in that cup? I got samples of peach mango (my fave), pomegranate maqui berry, and green tea passion fruit. No additives, preservatives, or fake coloring — just better tasting water. AND they provide life-saving oral rehydration salts to treat sick children! 



Musana Bumba Necklace $36.00 R.V.

How pretty is this handmade necklace (and with barkcloth bag)? Musana is a nonprofit that aims to break the cycle of poverty in Uganda by providing stable employment and education for women. Musana means ‘sunlight’ in the local language of Luganda, and the artisans who crafted this necklace are truly a light within their communities!


Living On One Special Edition DVD $24

Follow along as four university students spend a Summer in rural Guatemalan living on $1/day to better understand the realities of poverty. Their videos about the experience went viral on YouTube and ultimately became this amazing, award-winning film. I can't wait to watch this. Have you seen it?

Love for Humanity Face Cream $58
Made with active botanicals that preserve collagen and elastin, which help to keep skin youthful and firm. This formula is organic, vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and made in USA. Every product sold means a meal provided through Feed the Children. This smells amazing and gives me very soft skin.


Parker Clay Upcycled Wrap Bracelet & PArker Clay Headband $48 and $16

This bracelet was handmade out of Ethiopian leather and melted down bullets found in the Ethiopian countryside — what was once intended for harm has been transformed into something of hope and beauty.

This headband is handcrafted by a small team of artisans in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and is a must-have summer accessory.


Sevenly Lemonade Print $24

I don't have this framed yet, so I'm cheating and sharing a pic instead. I'm making lemonade here! ;) Such a fun, positive phrase and cute for summer. This print was one of the all-time best sellers in the Sevenly marketplace. 

I just want to thank CAUSEBOX for letting me sample their summer box. I love everything about this organization an hope you will try them. Want a free box of your own? If you sign up for an annual subscription, enter the code "ELLESEES03" at checkout to get a free Spring CAUSEBOX.

What was your favorite item from the box?

Extra Elle:
  • I'm back from vacation. The beach makes me so happy and calm. The laundry and sand everywhere? Not so much! ;)
  • My #JALS challenge for the month has kind of come to a halt. I did buy a nail polish rack to jump start it again. No idea what I'm talking about? Click here.

  29. I really liked the concept of Causebox and I was going to say that "give back to underprivileged communities" was a great point, then I read the other 3 points as providing jobs and awareness and well, I liked the 4 points! I loved the Mumba necklace and the book about living on $1 a day. I would love to read that book, honestly!

  34. I love the concept of this box, although I'm not sure I can justify $200 for the year. I do like the necklace and the print, super cute! And so glad you had a nice time at the beach. I know you were missing your Dad and I was thinking of you!

  39. I'm so bad about getting boxes-I feel like I already have a bunch of stuff and don't need anything else. BUT I feel like this is one that I would like. I love supporting others.

  46. With subscription boxes growing so much in popularity, it's nice to see a few of them actually giving back and supporting a good cause. Thank you for spreading the good word. (:

    ReplyDelete
  47. This causebox definitely sounds like a great program & all of the products you shared look amazing. I tried contacting them but I think their response was they didn't have enough inventory or something along those lines so I didn't push it. I'm not into spending money on certain products I see, but this definitely looks like a great subscription box and I may have to try it out! xx

    ReplyDelete
  48. That's seriously such a good idea! I love subscription boxes too and to know that the money is going to a cause makes it even better. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'm always a little unsure of subscription boxes just because so many of them seem like they're rip offs but this one totally doesn't seem like it! I love that it gives back to a great cause and the necklace is absolutely adorable! I'm glad you had a great vacay, welcome back to reality! xo
