May 2017 GlobeIn review time! — This month subscribers were able to choose from two different themes — “Lunch” or “Epicure”. I received both for review, but will be revealing “Lunch” first.

Let’s see what’s inside the May 2017 “Lunch” GlobeIn box!
As always, everything was shipped in the signature green & white GlobeIn box.
A peek inside!
A small info booklet featured full color photos and background information on all of the products included in the box, as well as the artisans who created them.
ECOlunchbox Tri Bento Lunch Box, India ($30)
Inspired by traditional Indian “tiffin” carriers, this stainless steel bento box is a great alternative to plastic/disposable food containers. It features 3 stackable layers which can hold a total of about 4 3/4 cups of food. Easy to use clips hold all the layers together and every component is dishwasher-safe!
Upcycled Lunch Bag, Kenya ($16)
This unique lunch bag/tote is made from recycled cement bags, lessening the amount of trash that ends up in the environment. It measures 12 x 7 x 4 inches and features a reinforced fabric handle.
Handmade Cloth Napkin, India ($6)
This hand printed and dyed cloth napkin is made of 100% cotton and features a simple blue polka dot print on a dark pink/reddish fabric. It’s created using traditional Indian textile techniques and is machine washable.
Spork, Sweden ($3)
A spork! This super handy utensil measures 7 inches long and has a spoon on one end, with a fork/knife combo on the other. It’s BPA-free, dishwasher safe, and incredibly durable. Light My Fire, the company behind these, is based in Sweden but sourced its first product (a fire starter stick) from the stumps of felled pine trees in Guatemala where it also aided the indigenous people in replanting new trees.
GlobeIn Greeting Card ($3)
Also included was a flat 6″ x 4″ greeting card that featured a quote by Luciao Pavarotti. — “One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.” Ha! I love that!
Lastly, there was a discount code for $30 off any purchase from MATTER, a socially motivated brand that focuses on returning to the basics of what connects us: stories, crafts, and values.
I really enjoyed May’s lunch-themed GlobeIn box. We all need to eat, so we might as well do it in a more eco-conscious way. 🙂 The total retail value of all the items was $58. Not bad! — Remember, for a limited time you can save $10 on your first month with any 3-month or longer subscription with coupon code “WELCOME“.
