Did you get a chance to see The Lorax?
I saw it with my children and it is just a fantastic movie, and a very good adaptation of the book.
The story reminds us that we need to socially and ecologically conscious about the decisions we make.
For children the story with its beautiful trufulla trees (which I think look like cotton candy) has some wonderful imagery.
After they saw the movie my five year old, Andrew, was upset that someone would want to do so much harm. For him it is just second nature to want to protect the environment.
I am thankful that he saw a deeper meaning in the movie (conserve what you have) and didn't just enjoy it for its musical numbers.
In that vein I think Andrew would be quite happy with Conscious Box and the way they do business.
Conscious Box is a monthly subscription service which mails it subscribers a box chock full of goodies (from food items, to drink mixes, to hand sanitizer).
Previous boxes have included products from:
The companies that produce the products chosen are held to a very high ethical, sustainable, and honest businesses that create very pure products.
Conscious Box is concerned not only that the products you receive be of a high standard but that also the box you receive them in be held high. The boxes are 100% post consumer recycled cardboard. They encourage all of their subscribers to "up-cycle" (or find a new purpose) for their box.
If you post a picture on Facebook you receive an extra item in the next months box.
I've seen people get pretty creative and fashion their boxes into planters, picture frames, and even a box for craft supplies.
But you know at my house even the rafia tie gets used (a great headband):
Now that I've talked them up a little I want to give you a chance to win a Conscious Box for July.
I will be running the giveaway until Thursday June 28th and to enter you just need to use the rafflecopter form below.
