My Summer Let’s Go Eco box is here and I am SO excited about it!! After seeing the spoilers for this season’s box I had a feeling I was going to love it…….and I can officially say that this is one of my favourite Let’s Go Eco boxes to date! They absolutely nailed it!
Let’s Go Eco Boxes arrive 4 times a year packed full of eco-awesome items like low waste swaps, quality reusables and plastic-free, all natural, handcrafted items from small Canadian businesses.
Each box has at least 7 items and offers 35% or more off regular retail prices.
Plastic-free including the packaging using the most environmentally-friendly options available. Labels are compostable with adhesive made from sugar cane, tissue and stickers printed using soy-based ink and boxes made from 100% recycled paper.
Here’s a peek at the items we received in the Summer Let’s Go Eco box…..
Natural Mineral Sunscreen by Attitude ($20)
This Plastic Free Mineral Sunscreen Stick SPF 30 is natural, efficient and comes in an innovative biodegradable cardboard tube to reduce single-use plastic! This mineral and hypoallergenic sunscreen uses natural ingredients like non-nano zinc oxide to offer broad-spectrum protection by forming a physical barrier that protects against both UVA and UVB rays.
Hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested and gentle on sensitive skin. PETA Certified, vegan, cruelty-free and reef-friendly. Easy to apply and moisturizing thanks to ingredients such as coconut oil and shea butter. Bring it with you wherever you go, and soak up the sun!
Thoughts: I am in love with this first item. I am very careful when it comes to sun exposure and love testing out different sunscreen options. I love that this one is a push-up application and that it is scented. This is going in our beach bag ASAP.
Summer Spray & Bug Deterrent by Shoosha ($18)
A multi-purpose, all-natural, certified organic outdoor spray you can use for the whole family. Acts as a moisturizer, fabric freshener and natural bug deterrent. Made from 99% certified organic ingredients and essential oils such as lemon eucalyptus, lemongrass, rose geranium, cedarwood and peppermint that smell great but also acts a natural bug deterrent. Contains no petrochemicals or any other synthetic ingredients. It can be safely applied directly on the skin. Shoosha is a women-led, small Canadian business and the first complete USDA certified skin care line in North America.
Thoughts: This is another product I am very excited about and also very perfect for our beach bag. Steven and I spend a ton of time outside so we will get a lot of use out of this.
Cocktail and Beverage Syrup by Kvas Fine Beverage Co. ($18)
Crafted in small batches in Niagara, Canada, KVAS’ mission is to provide the highest quality drink syrups that are simple to use, all natural and full of flavour. These syrups can be experienced in any number of ways, try them blended with frozen fruit and topped with sparkling water for an alcohol-free refresher or blend with various different types of alcohol for your own at-home patio party. The options are endless.
KVAS’s goal is to provide anyone with the confidence to make exceptional cocktails at home – not to mention sauces, glazes, baked goods and more. All syrups are all natural and use a base of either local honey, maple syrup and/or fruit and use ingredients harvested from local farms and businesses.
Thoughts: I am loving this beverage syrup because it complements the next item perfectly. I will probably mix it with plain soda, but it will also be fun to have on hand for guests.
Patio Mugs, stainless steel & copper ($40)
2022 is the summer of the cocktail and to pair with your syrup we’ve added these beautiful, reusable, copper plated and stainless-steel mugs. Given their stainless-steel lining, they’re food/drink safe, tarnish resistant and made to last a lifetime. Enjoy your drinks icy cool for longer, avoid outdoor plastic-cups (yuck!) and get that dining out experience at your very own home.
Thoughts: Yes, yes, yes! How gorgeous are these mugs?! And I am loving the fact that they included not one but two!!! There’s one for me and one for my hubby. I will feel so fancy sitting out on our patio with one of these beautiful mugs in my hand.
Straw Hat, made from raffia
Be protected when you’re out and about with this cute and flirty sun hat. The beautifully made natural raffia bucket hat is the perfect go-to for a variety of occasions as it rocks both beach and street vibes. Made from renewable raffia it’s also foldable and adjustable. Raffia is a highly renewable straw-like material made from palm tree leaves. It is durable, water resistant and flexible. This hat is not dyed and is unbleached as well.
Thoughts: I love receiving hats in subscriptions boxes….probably because something we don’t receive them often. This one is super cute and perfect for travel since it lays flat. It is also very versatile and will go with a lot of different outfit options.
Recovery Salve, travel pocket size Onsight Care ($6)
This recovery salve is great for when your body aches after a long active day. Helps soothe tension and pain with naturally infused anti-inflammatories, arnica flowers and menthol for relief from inflammations, bruises and tension in the body.
Onsight Care is a women-led business who are also active climbers. Frequent travel and being in nature inspired them to develop a line of compact, plastic-free, natural, biodegradable and effective personal care. Their entire line is all natural and handmade in Nelson BC. Plus, 5% of profits are also donated to combat human trafficking.
Thoughts: Here we have yet another product that I will be putting in our beach bag or maybe even our car bag (I try to keep a bag of essentials in our car at all times). I love the compact size, especially for a product like this because you don’t need a lot of it.
Bamboo Toilet Paper by Roll Up ($1.50)
It’s estimated that 15% of the world’s deforestation is due to typical toilet paper production made from wood pulp, leading to 27,000 trees being flushed or dumped in landfills each day. There’s a better way. Introducing RollUp TP, made from 100% FSC certified bamboo an incredibly fast-growing renewable resource that doesn’t need pesticides. This luxury TP is completely plastic free with wrappers made from 100% recycled paper and natural dyes. Super premium and septic safe.
Thoughts: Such a funny product for a subscription box but also kind of genius at the same time. Who doesn’t need Toiler Paper? And it fits perfectly with the eco-friendly theme.
