eco-friendly birchbox alternatives.

Does anyone else feel as though Birchbox is all the rage right now? I love the idea of paying only $10 a month to receive a wide variety of brand name beauty samples, however, I cringe at the thought of many of those items being more than likely laced with a copious amount of not-so-natural ingredients. While I recognize that a Tarte or Juice Beauty product might randomly end up in a monthly box, it’s not enough to entice me to join. Luckily there are some similar eco-friendly alternatives to Birchbox for all of those green peeps out there such as myself! (Bonus – all of the following are always wrapped in earth-friendly packaging!)

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this!! I have so many friends obsessed with Birchbox but I’ve been hesitant to join because I prefer natural products. I will definitely be taking advantage of one of these and passing this along! :)

    Thank you! I subscribed to birch box for a while and really like the idea, but ended up canceling because most of products aren’t clean. has anyone tried out the other alternatives, just curious which ones people like best?

  8. Tammy Roberts

    I really like Eco Emi and I signed up to try Vegan Cuts.

  9. I do makeup and styling for video and various shoots – and the only thing that kept me from Birchbox and the like – was the animal cruelty thing. Now I don’t have to worry about it! Add in sustainable and environmentally friendly – I’m in and passing the word!!

    Thank you!!! For speaking for those who can not speak for themselves :)
