The information book has detailed information about everything in the box.
Trashy Bags Upcycled Tote, Ghana $15.00 This bag fold into a portable pouch and is made from 70 recycled drinking water sachets. It can hold up to around 40 lbs, which makes it a great bag to take grocery shopping. Most people buy their water in sachets instead of bottles, but end up throwing away the sachets, which let to a problem with littering. This company helps to recycle the bags and gives a great place to work for women.
This is a full look at the bag. Once it is unzipped, the outside of the pouch, becomes the base of the bag.
Hand Blown Mexican Glass $15.00 This glass vessel is my favorite item in the box. It's made by hand by 8-14 people and has a textured iridescent finish. I have a family friend who makes blown glass, so I have a deep appreciation for the work that goes into crafting a piece. You can use this as a vase, or as a big cup for ice water.
Zambeezi Lip Balm, Zambia $3.00 This is made with beeswax and exotic mungongo oil from rural forests in central Africa. The owner of the company, Kohona works to improve his community through his business, from employing widows to working on building an orphanage.
Conscious Coconut Oil, Thailand $15.00 While I don't love coconut, coconut oil is a fabulous product. I have received it in different forms from subscription boxes and I love all the uses. You can use this on your body, hair, as oil pulling or to cook with. This bottle is going to be reserved for my hair. I love that it adds moisture, without making my hair feel greasy.
Brass Bottle Stopper from South Africa $10.00 GlobeIn is working to give subscribers more control over their subscription. One of their new options is giving subscribers the choices of their hand-woven baskets or a featured product each month. This month's product is this brass bottle stopper. These stoppers are made by the company Roots, which sounds like a great place to work, People are paid a fair wage, all while laughing and enjoying each other's company as they work. New people are higher from different employees friends and family.
Final Thought: This box had a total value of $58.00 and even better, everything was useful. I love getting quality items that are unique, but also practical in my day-to-day life. The glass vessel was my favorite item this month and I would love to pick up another one. You can save $10.00 on your first box of a three-month subscription, just use the coupon GLOBEMOM10.
