I don't know about you, but I love watching all of the unboxing videos on YouTube. There is just something about watching someone so excited about getting a new beauty product or a collectible that they have been wanting that gives me the warm fuzzies. My only real problem with the monthly subscription boxes is all the trash created by the boxes; cardboard boxes, tissue paper, product packaging - it doesn't seem to end.
Then, I heard about The Mighty Fix, a $10 a month subscription box containing a product to help your family live healthier. They also donate 15% of your purchases to the school of your choice; every month that you are subscribed. The shipping is free, and if you order additional items, those ship free as well. They pledge that all of their products are free from BPA, Phthalates and Lead. These aren't sample sized items either, they are the real things, durable and ready to use.
I first heard about The Mighty Fix on the Reading My Tea Leaves blog. They had a post about something called Bee's Wrap and I was smitten. I have been looking for ways to clear the plastic out of my kitchen, while at the same time being able to keep things fresh. I used to re-use my zipper bags, but my husband threw them out when I wasn't looking. So imagine my excitement when I saw the Bee's Wrap food storage options.
These wraps are made out of organic cotton fabric that is coated with a combination of beeswax and jojoba oil, and tree resin. They are reusable and last about a year and can then be composted. The company is certified by Green America, so you know that they can be trusted. While the initial price seems high, if you compare the one time purchase with the repeated purchace of zip bags, you wind up saving more than just the environment.
If you check out the blog post linked above from Read My Tea Leaves, there is a special Promo for The Mighty Fix and Bee's Wrap. If you want me to order the box and the special and do a video unboxing, let me know in the comments.
