Conscious Box – July 2013

I love trying new products but I HATE wasting money on products that I end up not loving after I try them. I hate wasting money and product! Conscious Box is the perfect solution! Every month I receive a little cute, preciously packaged box filled with all kinds of goodies from companies that are as earth conscious, eco-friendly, green, ethical and sustainable as I am (or as I try to be). If you love trying new products like I do and are always searching for new ones to try, Conscious Box is a great way to try them all! (I currently have three bottles of products in my shower that are not to my liking and I’m just trying to use them up so they don’t go to waste!)

Add a burst of sweet, fruity flavor to your normal (boring!) bottle of water! Made with organic lemon, agave syrup, orange, and hibiscus, Organic Flavrz All Natural Liquid Drink Mix provides a deliciously simple boost of immune-system supporting nutrients and antioxidants. Go ahead! Make a splash into better health!

I love Flavrz drink mixes.  They are delicious with a little less than 12oz of water.  Definitely a good alternative to Kraft’s Mio water enhancers.  Mio is just a crapload of artificial junk in every drop!

Packed with wholesome ingredients, made in a delicious Apple Cinnamon flavor, and serving as an excellent source of protein, fiber, and vitamins, each Skout Bar keeps your body energized and mind focused.

Skout bars are not my favorite go-to snack.  They weren’t this month, last month and I’m pretty sure they won’t be on my top ten next month either.

Enjoy chocolate like never before. Made with cacao from farmer co-operatives and organic sugar fair trade partners, Equal Exchange is proud to produce simple, healthy, and ethical chocolates. Vegan, soy-free, and gluten-free, these chocolates contain just five ingredients. Simple, delicious, and ethical!

This tasted a bit “funny” to me.  Not sure why.  It didn’t leave a bad after taste though, like other chocolates.  I was left very thirsty afterwards.

Fish oils are great for supporting brain function, memory, and mood. The benefit comes from omega-3 and omega-9 oils, which have anti-inflammatory alongside anti-clotting benefits. Nordic Natural only uses the finest fish oils, third party tested for environmental toxins like heavy metals and dioxins. As a result, they produce fish oils that far surpass international standards.
