If you haven’t jumped on the “box bandwagon,” lucky for you I’m here to fill you in! In today's market, there are a variety of boxes available to subscribe to, with more items than you can imagine. Customers may receive goodies every month or week and find the mystery mail exciting. The CAUSEBOX is the perfect box to get on board with this trendThe CAUSEBOX exposes subscribers to some incredible new products and educates individuals on social enterprises around the world. I had been eyeing the CAUSEBOX for a month or so and was excited to receive a subscription for my birthday.
Subscribers pay quarterly or yearly for their boxes and the price varies depending on the payment plan chosen. A new box is released each season. If you are not a subscriber you have to act fast as they sell out quickly. Each bright blue box contains a variety of products from social enterprises both in and outside of America. Customers can choose from the CAUSEBOX and the CAUSEBOX for Men. Last season's CAUSEBOX for Men contained items including a leather card wallet, cologne, earbuds, socks, and more. The contents of my first box are listed and pictured on The Honest Consumer's Facebook page. I won’t go into too much detail on the products because I am going to feature each of them individually in the near future.

I highly recommend learning more about the CAUSEBOX by visiting their website and looking at items featured in past boxes, as well. The CAUSEBOX is about $200 a year depending on the payment plan chosen. This includes four boxes, one sent for each season. The website states each box has approximately $150 worth of goods inside. My first box met those expectations. If you view past boxes on their website, retail prices are shown for each item you receive.
