June GlobeIn Benefit Basket review time!
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 $35/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 June 2016 GlobeIn Benefit Basket!
Ooh! — A fancy new green box! 🙂
A peek inside. The square sticker that would usually be on the outside of the box was placed on the inside lid.
A tri-fold info card included a little background on this month’s featured item, as well as a few photos of it “in action”.
A peek inside the box (and basket)!
Kitenge Tote by Wildlife Works Kenya ($20) – This colorful tote was handmade by local seamstresses in a small town in Kenya. Wildlife Works helps to provide eco-friendly jobs for people who would otherwise have to destroy the environment (through deforestation & land degradation) to survive. Instead, they create businesses such as the eco-clothing factory in which this 100% organic cotton tote was made.
GlobeIn Signature Palm Leaf Basket Oaxaca, Mexico ($12) – As always, the box included a handwoven basket made of discarded palm leaves that can take hours to hand-weave. While these are cool and all, I’m totally running out of room/uses for ’em!
If you’d like to sign up for the GlobeIn Benefit Basket, you can use coupon code “TRYBENEFIT” to save $7 off your first month’s box with a purchase of a 3-month subscription!
