An EcoCentric Mom Box is both dependable and surprising.
Dependable because you can count on the sample products it contains to be non-toxic,
low impact, and a great bargain. Surprising because every box introduces a
whole host of healthy personal care products, shampoos, soaps, and even foods
that you might have no idea existed. I like the box because it constantly gives
me fresh ideas for ways I can practice my Big Green Purse commitment and shift
my spending to greener goods to protect myself, my family, and my community.
This month’s box is no exception. Here’s a rundown of the
dependably surprising items I found. (NOTE: If you’d like to receive your own Ecocentric Mom box every month, you can sign up here. Big Green Purse readers get a 10% discount on any subscription plan you choose. Be sure to enter code ECOMOM10 at checkout.)
