Conscious Box | Discover green, ethical, pure and natural products delivered to your door monthly
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 11 /CSRwire/ - Conscious Box, the subscription service that delivers curated boxes filled with eco-friendly, fair trade, and organic goods right to subscribers' doorsteps, today announced the official launch of its flagship product, the Conscious Box.
Every month, subscribers will receive a variety of unique products from businesses that support these principles. Alongside the products will be useful content and information for living a more sustainable, healthy lifestyle.
The creators, Jameson Morris, 23, Jesse Richardson, 21, and Bjorn Borstelmann, 23, seek to connect subscribers with both small and large purpose-driven businesses working to make a difference on environmental and social levels.
"At Conscious Box, we aim to help people discover businesses and people that are working hard to make a difference in the world...With each purchase we make as consumers, we reflect our core values. Here at Conscious Box, we'd like to see those values align with authenticity, not greenwashing or unsustainable business practices," said the team. "It can be hard to find that business with the highest quality products and ethics – we hope Conscious Box can make it easier."
Morris and Richardson are also the minds behind Organic Soul, one of the fastest growing online communities focused on the environment, health and wellness, and lifestyle changes.
Founded in July of 2010, the community has been able develop a user-base of over 20,000 in just a single year with little marketing or outside funding. Borstelmann has also already developed a business, Formalitees, which patented the t-shirt with an attached necktie. Both businesses have had a focus on the environment, the power of consumers, and encouraging and fighting for proper business ethics.
Conscious Box combines philosophies of both companies and provides a unique platform for people to discover small and large purpose-driven businesses, get useful information, and help introduce subscribers to important causes they identify with.
To Conscious Box, "This really represents the holistic focus of the box: provide people with great products, useful information, and put them in touch with great causes."
The team has already seen great success in the model, with over 1000 people presubscribing for the service when only marketing through Organic Soul. "We're excited to see this project go forward. We really think it will help inspire change in others to change the world."
