The Globe In A Box

As I have mentioned here and here, I’m no stranger when it comes to monthly subscription boxes and services. There are so many to choose from! I also love that every month there’s a little something to look forward to in the mail rather than just bills and political mailers.


Recently, a unique subscription box called GlobeIn reached out to me. They offer a monthly box filled with artisanal products from around the world!  Each month, GlobeIn delivers “the globe in a box” ­ — a themed collection of artisan-made products from around the world. GlobeIn introduces you to products that you can feel good about ­ they are often organic, fair­trade, and support artisans and farmers from around the world.

Each box also includes stories on the country of origin of each product as well as the stories of the artisans and farmers. These are products you can feel good about supporting!

The Artisan Box is $30 a month for a six­ month subscription and $35 for a month ­by­ month subscription. Shipping is free in the United States, $12 to Canada and $15 internationally. Another bonus?! If you use the code BESTFRIEND at checkout, you’ll receive $20 off!


I am blown away by the stories behind each of these products and am proud to be supporting this new and exciting company!


Check out my unboxing video to see the products that were in this past month’s box:

This box has a value of $67!

Here’s a little more information about each of the items in the box:

LuLu Life Mosquito Repellent (South Sudan) – LuLu Works comprises 14 women-owned-and-operated Lulu processing centers in South Sudan. The company provides sustainable livelihood for the women it employs and affords a better life for their families.

Elephant Travel Journal (Sri Lanka) – This journal protects wild elephants by giving them economic value. Elephants eat grasses, shrubs and anything they can get their trunks on. Thanks to this high volume, all vegan diet, elephant dung makes the perfect fibrous base for rich, recycled paper. To protect their livelihoods, farmers kill an average of 2.4 elephants per week. But thanks to Pooja and Pooh Paper, over 50 Sri Lankan paper artisans can earn a living, and wild elephants can now be seen as an economic asset.

Drawstring Backpack (Sri Lanka) – For every bag that is purchased through Apihappi, funds are sent to provide school bags for children in rural Sri Lanka. To learn more:

Moringa Bar (Ghana) – With twice the protein of Greek yogurt, 4 times the calcium of milk and 7 times the vitamin C of orange juice, Moringa may be the ultimate super food. Inspired by a West African Peace Corps project where volunteers realized how difficult it was to get adequate vitamin-intake, Kuli Kuli Foods teaches rural families to farm Moringa – connecting them with both economic and nutritional sustenance in an increasingly harsh environment. That’s the true miracle of Moringa.
