My August 2016 GlobeIn Benefit Basket came super early! (Not complaining. 😉 )
If you’re not aware, GlobeIn is a monthly subscription box that features handcrafted goods by artisans around the world. Each month features a new theme with products supplied by various artisans. GlobeIn helps to bring income and exposure to small artists, while introducing you to beautiful pieces of their culture. Many of the products included are eco-friendly, fairly traded, and/or organic. Subscriptions are $40/month (shipping included), or less with multi-month commitments.
In addition to their standard Artisan Box, they also offer a smaller Benefit Basket for just $19.95/month. Every Benefit Basket includes one artisan-made item, along with a handwoven palm leaf basket. — For a limited time, you can save $7 on your first month of a 3-month Benefit Basket subscription when you use coupon code “TRYBENEFIT“.
Let’s see what’s inside the August 2016 GlobeIn Benefit Basket!
A peek inside. Once again, the square sticker that would usually be on the outside of the box was placed on the inside lid.
As always, a tri-fold info card included a little background on the featured item, as well as a few photos of it “in action”.
GlobeIn Signature Palm Leaf Basket Oaxaca, Mexico ($12) – All GlobeIn Benefit Basket shipments include a handwoven basket made of discarded palm leaves. These are woven entirely by hand and can take hours to complete. I love this bold red color!
Tribe Alive Wishbone Pendant Necklace Honduras ($32) – GlobeIn is all about brass lately! This pretty necklace features a 16-inch chain with an elegant V-shaped “wishbone” pendant. It was crafted in Honduras by an artisan who had overcome a life-threatening heart condition and has since learned the art of jewelry making.
Here’s a photo to give you a better idea of the pendant’s actual size.

August 2016 GlobeIn Benefit Basket Review
GlobeIn has been all about the brass jewelry lately! While I do like the simplicity of this necklace, as a vegan I’m just not sure how I feel about wearing a wishbone pendant. 😉 Still, it’s a very pretty piece!
