Okay, first of all – don’t hate me for being so late in getting this post out to you. I received a sample of this GlobeIn box but because the month is over, you won’t be able to purchase THIS month’s box. The good news is, what you see is just a small example of what you’ll receive if you decide to get a subscription of GlobeIn.
So I’ll back up. What IS GlobeIn? We’ve seen a few dozen subscription boxes of various topics. What makes this one better? The fact that GlobeIn works with people around the world to allow them to get their handmade items in the hands of people like you and me is what makes them better. Just about every single item in a GlobeIn box will be handmade with a little story about the person or persons that you’re helping support.
It’s a beautiful sentiment but more importantly, I like the idea of being able to educate myself on various people and place across the globe and get a hand in helping support their communities. Also, you’ve got to love how each Box has a topic. September 2015’s was Wellness and considering I’m about to have a baby, well this box was totally needed!
Each Artisan box comes in GlobeIn’s signature handwoven basket. Elle and I love these and have found such great use of them in our home. She likes to put her forks, knives and spoons in the basket to place it on her kitchen shelf.
This Blessing Bag comes from Ghana and is made from discarded plastic water sachets. It’s beautiful and currently acts as my new cosmetic bag.
The Eye Pillow from Peru was crafted by the Shipibo and is loaded with the relaxing scent of Lavender. I’ve already got this baby on my Home Birth Essentials list.
The Baobab Powder from Benin is something that I’ve never heard of but will likely toss into a fruit smoothie.
Also, each month GlobeIn donates 50% of profits from a Box to a charitable organization or cause. September’s proceeds went to Watsi, an organization that connects medical patients who can’t afford medical procedures with donors via the World Wide Web. Beautiful, right?
A bit of a splurge at $35/box, GlobeIn is probably not ideal for my guys and girls on a budget. It’s an investment, yes, but if you are already a fan of subscription boxes and want something different that helps foster indepedence and community, I’m thinking you’ll love GloveIn. I am a huge fan of the mission and I love being able to get stories and histories behind the women that are impacted greatly from GlobeIn.
