As we head towards Christmas, the consumerism of the season starts to kick in, but if you’re choosing to live a much more sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyle, you don’t have to miss out! Instead, why not treat yourself or a loved one to a subscription to a different kind of box?
Myinnerbox is a new UK based lifestyle subscription box which is based around sustainability and is curated with an interesting variety of cruelty-free and vegan-friendly products that are sourced from independent small and medium-sized business. You won’t find useless products or lots of plastic packaging either (even the box and all the packaging is wonderfully plastic-free, yay!) – everything has been carefully chosen to have a purpose so you’re guaranteed to enjoy using each product instead of having them clutter up your bathroom cabinet.
Myinnerbox offers three purchase options on their website (paying monthly with no up-front payments) so that you can choose the one that is right for you:-
- A single box (no subscription) for £35.99 + £2.95 shipping
- A three-month subscription for £33.99 each month + £2.95 shipping
- A six-month subscription for £31.99 each month + £2.95 shipping
