Greenecobox offers a monthly lifestyle based subscription box called Bee Happy Box which is filled with artisanal delights from ethical and eco-friendly small brands and businesses. Working with artisans across the UK and Europe, each box contains an interesting selection of food and lifestyle products.
Greenecobox also donates to two different campaigns/charities on your behalf with the purchase of each box. This month’s chosen projects are OneTreePlanted (one tree will be planted for you in Amazonia) and you’ll receive a certificate of proof in your box, and €4 will be donated to Amazon Watch to help protect the indigenous tribes of the Amazon rainforests.
October’s Bee Happy Box has some great products so let’s check them out!
Carthéo Mendiants Orange Chocolate Bar
Who doesn’t love chocolate? This luxury handmade slab of chocolate comes from the Southern French artisans Carthéo and this flavour features 70.5% dark chocolate with a blend of candied orange pieces and mixed nuts. Absolutely delicious!
Bremond Risotto With Asparagus
For something savoury, there’s a delicious bag of Risotto With Asparagus which has been prepared by another French artisan called Bremond. Using Risotto which is handmade in Piedmont, an area where Carnaroli Rice has been cultivated since the 17th century, this extra-special dish is easy to prepare and full of flavour. Simply add a spoonful of olive oil and parmesan.
Artisan Du Fruit Sirop De Fraise
Also from France, there’s a large bottle of Strawberry Syrup which features natural fruit and plant extracts to give it the most beautiful all-natural colour and flavour. Add to still or sparkling water for a refreshing fruity drink or drizzle into cocktails for a summery twist any time of the year.
The Highland Soap Company Hebridean Seaweed Body Wash
Closer to home, we find a lovely Body Wash from British brand, The Highland Soap Company. Made with 100% natural ingredients (95% of which are organic), this Body Wash has a nutrient-rich formula thanks to Marine Kelp extracts and refreshing Peppermint essential oil which are layered over a moisturising base of Aloe, Lavender and Chamomile.
Feel Green Garden Of Provence
The last product is a grow at-home kit with a mix of traditional Provence herbs such as Lavender, Basil and Oregano. The instructions are easy to follow – just open the can, sprinkle the seeds and pour over a little water to get things started. Place in a warm and sunny spot, adding water when needed and watch it grow!
To complete the box, Greenecobox has included some extras; two tea bag samples from Higher Living Organic in English Breakfast and Digest Delight, and a box of delicious French artisan biscuits – yum!
