Remember being a kid, when you used to get care packages from people who loved you? Whether it was mom’s quarterly box when I was studying abroad in college, grandma’s cookies at Christmas, or chocolate candy from my sweetheart on Valentine’s Day, ripping open a care package filled with my favorite snacks, treats and beauty products made my day – no, my month.
But what about as an adult? These days, care packages are few and far between. That is, until LOVE GOODLY, my new favorite gift box subscription. Unlike other gift box subscriptions, all of Lovegoodly’s products are curated and selected with conscious values in mind. They only source vegan, nontoxic and organic snacks, cosmetics, and beauty products. To top it off, all of their packaging is eco-friendly, so you know neither animals nor the earth will be harmed if you choose to indulge. And for less than $30 a box for several full-sized products, it’s a steal. Self-care is priceless!
Co-founded by L.A. eco-entrepreneurs Katie Bogue Miller and Justine Lassoff previously of LovingEco, Love Goodly launched last year as a expertly researched and curated bi-monthly subscription box service and e-commerce platform for discovering the best LUXURY 100% non-toxic, non-gmo, cruelty free and vegan products for your lifestyle – beauty, wellness, snacks and skincare – including its own exclusively made products.
“Katie and I developed our second project, LOVE GOODLY, with a simple idea — you can vote with your wallet for more conscious brands. As advocates of nontoxic lifestyle products, giving back and shopping efficiently, we created LOVE GOODLY — putting a twist on the business of ‘feeling good’ by combining lifestyle subscription boxes and social consciousness,” said cofounder Justine Lassoff.
Each LOVE GOODLY box includes carefully sourced full-size, deluxe products – including EXCLUSIVE items – in a wide from companies such as Go Raw, SW Basics, Hurraw!, RMS Beauty, Dogeared Jewelry and ALOHA. Furthering the company’s mission to live a healthier life, LOVE GOODLY gives back to an annual Cause Partner with every purchase. Five percent of proceeds from each box and product sold in 2016 will benefit Cure Cervical Cancer or Farm Sanctuary.
Consumers can opt for a bi-monthly subscription or visit LoveGoodly.com to shop for their favorite luxury and select exclusive products. LOVE GOODLY carefully researches and selects its brands and labels them with 12 value icons based on their attributes, such as gluten-free and organic, so it’s easy to shop by need. Skin care and beauty products are vegan and cruelty-free and all products are reviewed to ensure they are toxin free. The company additionally selects style accessories and home products with a range of attributes from fair trade made by workers and artisans around the world by supporting fair wages to companies using more natural, organic or recycled materials.
