Earthlove Box is a seasonal subscription box filled with eco-conscious goods for leading a holistic, more earth-centered life.
Each box will feature 6-8 full size items, spanning different categories like snacks, teas, books, wildcrafting, wellness, apothecary, aromatherapy, beauty, outdoor, gardening, home decor, apparel, accessories, and more. Earthlove Box sources products that are ethically responsible, including zero waste packaging, natural ingredients, cruelty-free, organic and non-GMO, gluten-free, beegan/vegan, and fair-trade. Subscribers will also get to vote on a new book to be included in each box, of which members will have their pick (out of 3 titles).

Upon signing up, you’ll have the option of selecting either a vegan or “beegan” box (which means that everything is vegan except for bee and insect products sourced from ethical farmers).
Subscriptions are $59.95/quarter or less with annual plans. — For a limited time, you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code “LOVETHEEARTH“!
Let’s see what’s in the Summer 2021 Earthlove Box!
Everything was shipped in a brown box with floral illustrations and an Earthlove Box logo in the center.
A peek inside!
A full-color info booklet/magazine included a list of everything inside the box, as well as brief descriptions and retail values for each one. It also include articles on creating good eco habits, conserving salmon, easy zero waste kitchen swaps, and more.
What Would the Buddha Recycle? – A Mindful Guide to an Eco-Friendly Life ($14.99 on Amazon)
Every Earthlove Box includes one of three different books voted on by active subscribers. The Summer 2021 selections were Vegan Style: Your Plant-Based Guide to Fashion+Beauty+Home+Travel by Sascha Camilli, Our Wild Calling by Richard Louv, or the title shown above.
What Would the Buddha Recycle? can help you gain a better understanding of how you impact the world around you in your day-to-day life. And, even better, it can help you pause, reflect, and figure out what changes you can make to protect the world. In this book you’ll learn how to:
-Use natural ingredients in your home for cleaning (lemon juice can help your furniture shine) and pest control (chili pepper can deter ants)
-Combine mindful cooking and eating for healthier meals that don’t hurt the environment and make you feel great
-Figure out the right food to keep your beloved pets happy and healthy by choosing natural ingredients and avoiding chemical preservatives
-Include your family in your new environmentally friendly ways and raise your children to have a similar mindset about saving the planet
-And much more!
With advice that covers every area of your daily life, What Would the Buddha Recycle? offers easy changes so you can make a difference and protect the environment all while staying zen in the process.
I wouldn’t say I’m looking forward to reading this selection, but I’ll at least give it a lengthy skim. 😉
Guru Upcycled Sari Kimono ($110 value)
This incredibly colorful robe was handcrafted from upcycled fair trade Ragsulla saris — meaning each piece is 100% one of a kind. The saris — main mostly of bamboo viscose or artificial silk — were collected by bartering with Indian villages and may have a few minor imperfections adding to the uniqueness of this garment. The robe is one size fits most and features two front pockets, elasticized openings at the sleeves, and a removable tasseled belt.
Full Circle Bamboo Utensil Set ($15 value)
Made from recycled plastic bottles, this cute ocean-inspired pouch holds a set of bamboo utensils that’s perfect for taking on the go. The pouch itself measures roughly 8 inches long by 2 inches wide, with each utensil being a bit less than 8 inches in length. Eliminate the need for single-use utensils by taking this along on picnics, camping trips, traveling, or day trips to the beach.
Tezahn Ginger & Jaggery Cold Infusion ($8 value)
This box of cold infusion tea includes 10 sachets designed to keep you uplifted, rejuvenated, and hydrated throughout your day. Each sachet contains a blend of Tulsi (Holy Basil), ginger, jaggery, cardamom, edible camphor, nutmeg, cloves, and mace. To use, simply drop a bag into water, shake, let sit for 5 minutes, and enjoy.
Net Zero 4-Piece Storage Bag Set ($47.96 value)
Reusable storage bags are kind of “in” now (I received a similar set in another subscription recently), so I wasn’t surprised to see these in the Summer 2021 Earthbox. The set contains 4 bags — 1 small (17 oz), 2 medium (35 oz), and 1 large (50 oz). Each one is made of FDA-approved food grade silicone that’s both dishwasher- and microwave-safe. They also feature a writable surface with imprinted measurements, a base that allows them to stand upright, and rounded corners for easy cleaning. In all honesty, I’m not impressed with these so far as I haven’t been able to even remove the sliding(?) plastic seals to get them open. My husband also didn’t have any luck. :/ For nearly $50, I would think they would be a lot more user-friendly.
Stream2Sea Sun & Sting Soothing Gel ($12.95 value)
My kiddos and I always get our fair share of bug bites (and other skin irritations) in the summer, so a “sun & sting” relief gel is a welcome product in our home. This soothing gel helps to ease the effects of sunburn, insect bites, painful underwater stings, and various types of skin irritation. It’s non-greasy, fast-absorbing, biodegradable and formulated without the use of parabens, phthalates, dyes, or sodium laurel sulfate.
Infused with superfoods including avocado, spirulina and moringa, this vitamin-rich face mask will leave your face glowing and hydrated. To use, simply place 1-2 scoops of powder into your palm & mix with equal amount of water to create a paste. Apply to face for 5 minutes and then rinse with warm water.
The Summer 2021 Earthlove Box included a nice assortment of useful eco-friendly products that can easily work themselves into your daily routine. My favorite items were the Guru Upcycled Sari Robe, Stream2Sea Sun & Sting Soothing Gel, Tezahn Ginger & Jaggery Cold Infusion, and Full Circle Cutlery Set. The total retail value of everything in this quarter’s box was an impressive $230.90! 😀 — Remember, for a limited time you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code “LOVETHEEARTH“!
