Overconsumption is a driving force in our environmental woes. “Buying less” in our consumerist society is a core principle of sustainable living and an important element of finding more balance with our planet.
That being said, most of us still need to consume certain things and find joy and happiness in specific purchases and possessions. In many cases, sustainable products are more expensive due to higher-quality materials, fairer wages, and more robust transparency. Discounts on sustainable living items we otherwise need or plan to buy can make green living more accessible.

Although the packaging isn’t entirely plastic-free, the company does a great job minimizing packaging and plastic in the boxes (especially relative to similar types of boxes). I love that they have lots of activity boxes that focus on sustainable living too, including themes like alternative energy, climate change, and endangered animals box.
