1. Let’s Go Eco

Passion is what you will find at Let’s Go Eco. This company loves the environment and wants to make it last for generations. 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 from their site if a subscription box isn’t for you or if you want to buy more of the products you have received in the box.

The box is thoughtfully packaged, as all the orders come with carbon-free shipping and are low waste and minimal plastic. The boxes are ordered seasonally (every three months) and are filled with items that align with the season, so you will love everything you get.

Also, I love the fact that you can purchase past boxes. Look at the Spring 2023 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 30-60% savings off regular retail prices. Use code CANDICE10 to save 10% off your first-time purchase.

On The Good Lane, you'll find products from companies that are fair trade, B-corp certified, and more — from home goods and accessories like jewelry, hair ties, tote bags, and scarves to personal wellness items like baths salts and reusable facial pads to name a few.

Do you have old socks lying about? It might be time to replace them!

Conscious Step is on a mission to embrace slow fashion and give you a chance to buy better long-lasting clothing. They sell sustainably made socks; you can get this in a subscription! One of the best parts about this company is that they have given back over $800,000 to non-profit partners.

The socks sold here are organic, Fair Trade-certified cotton, and vegan-certified; 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 aligned with the highlighted cause each month. However, monthly subscriptions can choose the style they receive by managing their subscription.

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 Goodnewspaper is a wonderful way to brighten up your day! Full of good news stories carefully curated to leave you feeling hopeful, the Goodnewspaper also makes a great eco friendly gift for the holidays. 

Developed by a team of artists, activists, and journalists, every issue also contains practical action steps to help readers find easy ways to make a difference and get involved, as well as beautiful art, including a fold-out centerfold poster illustrated by guest artists featuring an inspiring quote.

Why consider eco-friendly and sustainable subscription boxes?

I am not a huge shopper, but I like to browse occasionally, and I have not done that in over a year! Subscription boxes can be a practical way to deliver something fun to your door safely.

Eco-friendly subscription boxes also make great gifts. Let's be honest: who doesn't love getting mail and opening a treasure box?

These small businesses provide useful products you might not have been exposed to before. Each of them is curated specifically based on your needs and lifestyle. I 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 cuts out the middleman, eliminates an entire transport stage, and cuts 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 and the materials needed to package items for non-bulk sales in the store.
