Passion is what you will find at Let’s Go Eco, this company loves the environment and wants to make it last for generations to come. They bring you the best eco-conscious products in one subscription box! All the items are selected based on their commitment to sustainability, low waste, minimal to no plastic, and ethical practices.
You can also shop for eco-friendly items right from their site if a subscription box isn’t for you, or you want to buy more of the products you have received in the box.
The box itself is thoughtfully packaged as all the orders come with carbon-free shipping and are shipped 100% plastic free. The boxes are seasonally (every 3 months) ordered and are filled with items that line up with the season so you will absolutely love everything that you get.
Also, love the fact that you can purchase past boxes, take a look at the Summer 2022 box, it's well worth it! Let's Go Eco was voted the best eco-friendly box of 2022. Boxes are worth $150-$200 and offer savings of 30-60% off regular retail prices.
We love homegrown companies so it’s no wonder that The Good Lane made the list! Based out of Cochrane Alberta, Canada this new company will quickly become your next favorite subscription box.
Born from a simple idea in 2020 to support small businesses that have a focus on eco-friendly materials, Brenna, the founder, has created a company that is earth-friendly, gives back, and supports small businesses who are prioritizing people and the planet.
On The Good Lane you'll find products from companies who are fair trade, B-corp certified and more — ranging from home goods and accessories like jewelry, hair ties, tote bags, and scarves to personal wellness items like bath salts and reusable facial pads to name a few.

Conscious Step is on a mission on embracing slow fashion and giving you a chance to buy better long-lasting clothing. They sell sustainably made socks, and yes you can get this in a subscription! I think one of the best parts about this company is they have given back over $800,000 to non-profit partners.
The socks sold here are organic, Fair Trade-certified cotton, and vegan certified as well, the paper tags and boxes are made from recycled materials, so their impact is incredibly low. They are also certified with GOTS, 1% for the planet, and OEKO-Tex.
When you subscribe to Conscious Step you get a preselected style of sock that is aligned with the highlighted cause each month. However monthly subscriptions are able to pick out the style they receive by managing their subscription. The subscription plan can come every month for either a 6- or 12-month period and start at $78 (current pricing).
Founded in 2006 Life Without Plastic aims to do exactly what its name says by producing non-plastic products and raising awareness about the environmental issues we face caused by fossil-fuel-derived plastics.
Owners Jay and Chantal have always had the ambition of reducing plastic in the world, the creation of their company came from searching for an alternative to plastic baby bottles, and when they could only find one company that could do that but only in bulk, they knew they had to do something about the gap in the market.
The eco subscription box is filled with high-quality plastic-free items that range from personal care to home goods, be on the lookout because some items are exclusives and you’ll be among the first to try them!
The boxes come in one-time purchases or seasonally, you can customize each box but make sure you do this before the payment for your box comes out (every three months).
The concept of this box is to bring other countries right to your home, Try The World offers you a box of chef-curated international foods that have recipes and cultural items like stories to give you the best cultural experience.
The items found in the box are sourced from the originating country and the brand makes the best effort it can to only work with small and family-owned companies. They want to make the boxes as authentic as possible, using sustainable practices.
You can choose from two types of boxes, world countries or snacks, each with the option of shipping monthly, quarterly, bi-annually, or yearly. You can also choose to gift a box to a loved one!

This company embodies its values and has made sure its partners are size inclusive, cares about racial and social justice, and maintains ethical and sustainable sourcing.
What Wearwell does differently is that they don’t necessarily offer you a box but rather a subscription to the best and most sustainable fashion, jewelry, accessories, and home brands.
They have a really unique platform and offer three types of memberships, non-member which only gives you access to ethical and sustainable brands, monthly gives you a lot more perks like 10% off all purchases and rewards for shopping, and the annual gives you all the monthly benefits plus first access to new products and $70 in perks.

“Sitti” [Si'-TEE], which means “my grandma” in Arabic, is a social enterprise that aims to empower and restore hope to refugee communities through the making of olive oil soap and an expanded line of consciously crafted lifestyle products inspired by the traditions of the community.
Sitti is a certified women-owned, and purpose-driven brand committed to the self-reliance of refugee and displaced communities providing long-term income-generating opportunities and skill development training empowered by an inclusive global economy.
Sitti was co-founded in 2014 by local Toronto resident, Noora Sharrab, CEO of Sitti and co-founder and the Middle East regional director of Hopes for Women in Education, an international NGO, and American Jacqueline Sofia, CCO/CIO of Sitti. The two co-founders partnered with several skilled female artisans in the Jerash Refugee Camp community in Jordan to create Sitti.
The Sitti product line, which began with a signature square bar of handmade, cold-pressed olive oil soap, has since grown to a line of 21+ popular lifestyle products, including curated products through partnerships with mission-driven brand names.
Their subscription boxes have different themes, from women-owned brands to World Refugee Day to farm-to-face products. Below is what's included in the Woman-Owned box.

Why consider eco-friendly and sustainable subscription boxes?
With COVID, it's so hard to go out and shop. I am not a huge shopper, but I do like to browse every once in a while and I have not done that in over a year! So with social distancing, subscription boxes can be a very practical way to get something fun delivered to your door safely.
Eco-friendly subscription boxes also make really great gifts. I mean, let's be honest: who doesn't love getting mail and opening a treasure box?
These small businesses all provide useful products that you might not have been exposed to before. Each of them is curated specifically based on your needs and lifestyle. I really love that! I chose a wide range of boxes, so I hope you can find something you love.
A subscription service that sends its boxes directly to the consumer is cutting out the middleman, eliminating an entire stage of transport, as well as cutting back on the resources needed to stock something in a storefront location.
If you’re having items shipped in bulk, you’re also saving the gas you might use on repeated shopping trips, as well as the materials needed to package items for non-bulk sales in the store.
