With so many new earth-friendly products springing up every day, it can be really difficult to figure out which ones are worthy of your hard-earned money. We all want to do our part to save the environment, eat healthier, use purer products on our skin, and reduce our overall footprint. At the same time, we want to cut costs and make sure that everything we buy is actually worth the hours we work to obtain the money for them, right? When I have time, I try to sign up for as many free samples as possible, so I can get to know more companies. Still, not every company out there offers free samples, and when they do, they’re in very limited supply.

Conscious Box makes it easy to try out a variety of new earth-friendly products before you spend the money on a full-size version. Each month, they issue a new box filled with all sorts of goodies. I received the March box, which was focused primarily on foods and beverages. Check it out:


The March Conscious Box came with numerous samples, including: MixtBag wheat-free and gluten-free chips, EBOOST immune system booster, Crunchmaster Multi-grain crackers, Olbas herbal Throat Lozenges, a full-sized tin of Tea Forte Minteas, Healthy to Go! Acai Energy Boost, Good Kind Coffee Creamer, Java Juice, and a few more samples. It also included a coupon for a free Morning Sunshine Breakfast cookie, a $5 gift certificate to Hip Mamas and a $15 certificate to Mineral Hygienics.

Seriously, they pack a ton of stuff into these cute little boxes! I’ve tried most of it over the past week, and I ordered my breakfast cookie. My favorite has to be the Java Juice. Big surprise, right? We all know how much I love my coffee! This stuff is pretty cool, it’s a little packet with concentrated liquid coffee. Just add it to hot or cold water, stir, and drink. I love iced coffee, so it’s perfect to take on the go. The Crunchmaster crackers are yummy too! Most of all, I loved the opportunity to discover new eco-friendly products to add to my future shopping lists.

Conscious Box puts out a new box each month, and you can either buy one at a time or subscribe. If you do it monthly, it’s $12+$7 shipping, so $19. Save money by subscribing for 3-6 months at a time. The gift certificates alone came to $20, plus there was at least one full-sized item, so it’s worth it. Every item in the box is chosen because it meets the highest standards of sustainability and environmental friendliest.
