The Summer CAUSEBOX by Sevenly did not disappoint. This is the third quarterly CAUSEBOX to be released, a socially conscious subscription box for women. As a CAUSEBOX Ambassador I receive a box each quarter to review and have to say that this is my favorite box to date.
You could say that CAUSEBOX by Sevenly is a subscription box that changes lives, quite literally. Each quarter the box contains only products that do good and give back generously to underprivileged communities, help provide jobs and sustainable income in underdeveloped areas of the world, raise awareness for different charitable initiatives, and empower people, help people, or otherwise make the world a better place. That just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. CAUSEBOX by Sevenly is one of a kind and is subscription box service with a big heart.
In addition to only including socially conscious goods, Sevenly gives back to charity a significant portion from each box that is sold – 7% of every purchase is given back to charity. CAUSEBOX subscribers even have the option to choose to support a specific charity through their subscription, having the option to pick from several charity partners. If the subscriber chooses to let Sevenly select which charity to support with their donation we will notify them about the use of their funds.
Are you ready to take a look inside the Summer CAUSEBOX?
First, I want to mention that every box has at least $150 of retail value, and sells for $49.95/quarter. That’s pretty amazing! Be sure to read down to the bottom of this post for a very special offer!
Musana Bumba Necklace
This handmade necklace is stunning and comes in a lovely barkcloth bag. Musana is a nonprofit social enterprise that aims to break the cycle of poverty in Lugazi, Uganda by providing stable employment and educational opportunities for women. Musana means ‘sunlight’ in the local language of Luganda, and the artisans who crafted this beautiful necklace are lights within their communities.
Parker Clay Upcycled Wrap Bracelet
This stunning bracelet is my favorite item in the box. The premium leather bracelet was handmade out of genuine Ethiopian leather and melted down bullets found in the Ethiopian countryside – what was once intended for harm has been transformed into an emblem of hope and beauty. For every bracelet sold, Parker Clay sens one Ethiopian woman through a prostitution prevention training program through their partner, Women at Risk.
Parker Clay Headband
This is the second item from Parker Clay. They do such amazing work! This headband is handcrafted by a small team of artisans in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and is a must have summer accessory.
Living On One Special Edition DVD
Living on One documents the inspiring journey of four university students who spent a summer living on $1 per day in rural Guatamala. Their videos, which documented the realities of living in poverty, went viral on YouTube and ultimately became this amazing, award-winning film. The story is relatable, thought-provoking, and motivating.
Sevenly Lemonade Print
When life gives you lemons, what do you do? You make lemonade! I feel like this is something I do just about every day. I’m going to make this attitude of optimism my summer motto and have plans to frame and hang this lovely print in my home office. This print was one of Sevenly’s all-time best sellers in the Sevenly marketplace. It was brought back exclusively for the CAUSEBOX community. I am so glad that it was!
KeepCup 6oz To-Go CUP
KeepCup is the world’s first barista standard reusable coffee cup. I is made from non-toxic BPA and BPS-free polypropylene and features a splash proof seal. Designed for drinking pleasure on the go, this KeepCup is lightweight and unbreakable and it saves the planet from all kinds of paper and plastic waste. Loving this reusable cup!
Love for Humanity Face Cream
This face cream is formulated with active botanicals that preserve collagen and elastin, which keep your skin looking firm and youthful. How did they know I need this?! Not only is Love for Humanity’s miracle formula organic, vegan, cruelty free, paraben free, toxic-everything free, and Made in the USA – but for every product that Love for Humanity sells they provide a meal for the malnourished through Feed the Children!!!
Everly Hydrating Drink Mixes
How many times have you heard about the importance of drinking water throughout the day? A lot, right? Well the thing about water is that it tastes like nothing, and nothing is a boring thing to drink all day. Amen. Everly is the first company to make drink mixes without crazy additives, preservatives, and fake coloring. Love that! Just fantastic all natural flavor to go with your water. And to top it all off, for every box sold, Everly provides a packet of life-saving oral rehydration salt mix to treat children with waterborne diseases. Here’s to a well hydrated summer! I have a feeling Everly Hydrating Drink Mixes will become a summer staple at my house.
