One of the reasons I love Twitter is because I find little gems on it. Over my social media platforms, I’m trying harder than ever to curate my feeds with who I follow, what they’re talking about and what I personally take away from it. That’s how I came across the Low Tox Box.
(Disclaimer: I haven’t been paid to do a review nor have I been sent this box for free. I bought this myself after coming across the company on Twitter and I was so impressed that I wanted to share my thoughts on it. The links contained in this post are not affiliate links, I simply wanted to make the products more accessible to you, if you were interested in finding out more.)
If you’ve never heard of the Low Tox Box (like me until very recently) it’s what it says on the tin (or shall we say box?). It’s a company that was started up in 2017 by a woman called Lucy that delivers ethically sourced and low toxin products so you can become part of the change for a cleanlier and more sustainable environment. From my research, the company used to do monthly boxes but they are now more focused on one off gift boxes, which to me personally, I prefer. I love the idea of subscription boxes but I simply can’t justify it each month.
The shop stock four different boxes; “Mindfulness” Gift Box, “Vegan New Mum” Gift Box, “Eco Friendly Travel Essentials” Gift Box and the one that I purchased was the “Zero Waste” Starter Kit. They all vary in price but mine came in at £30, but they had a special 10% off deal for Earth Hour the day I purchased it, so including postage and packaging, mine came in at just under £30.
As many of you know if you follow me on social media, I’m always looking what impact I have on the environment so this “Zero Waste” kit is the perfect stepping stone for me. Below is up close look at what you get in the box, and for every box that is ordered, a tree is planted. Now, if that doesn’t make you feel good, I don’t know what will!
(I love getting a little personalised note with my packages.)
(The Que Bottle that holds up to 600ml of liquid hot or cold when expanded.)
(Reusable Stainless Steel Spork (a spoon and fork in one!), Wire Straw Cleaning Brush and Reusable Stainless Steel Curved Straw.)
(Natural Mesh Produce Bag.)
(Natural Small String Produce Bag.)
(Natural LowToxBox Tote Bag.)
I know that I’ll use all of these products; I would tend to drink quite a lot of water and I try and carry a water bottle around with me as well as my Keep Cup. The produce bags will come in handy when I go to the green grocers at the start of the week before I head into work that morning and the Tote bag will fit in any of my bags because even though I try my best to remember, sometimes I forget to pack shopping bags. As for the straw and the spork, these will be fantastic in work because it will only be me using them or if I’m ever out to grab a quick bite, I hate using disposable cutlery so this will be absolutely perfect.
This would be a fantastic gift for someone you know who is trying to live a more sustainable lifestyle or even if you’re trying to take small steps to help change the way you shop, eat or purchase products. Let me know if you’ve bought this box before or any of the other boxes, and what you thought of them (I have my eye on the “Travel Essentials” box next!)
