This Good Box - a preview

I was delighted yesterday to receive a parcel in the post from This Good Box, an ethical subscription service in the UK. The parcel was part of their trial to find out what people think of their service before their official launch in Spring 2015.

The parcel arrived all beautifully tied up in purple tissue paper and contains:

ginger lip balm from Raw Skincare

a lovely recycled paper-bead bracelet made by Sarah Mamaganda from Awamu, a social enterprise that works with women in the slums of Kampala, Uganda

a white chocolate lolly from Chocolate Memories, a social enterprise in Northern Ireland that offers training opportunities to young people with autism.

a card designed by Jenny Jackson, printed on recycled card

and This Good Box merchandise - an insirations postcard and two badges!

Not only is this a lovely little parcel of goodies, but obviously they can read my mind as I was going to be buying lip balm again very soon and ginger is one of my favourite flavours!

So thank you to This Good Box!

Isn't getting a parcel in the mail fun? I love that - and this one is full of such wonderful things.

A lovely and unusual selection. Love the tissue paper!

Lovely things! I got a mint lip balm but ginger sounds great too. The chocolate lolly didn't stick around long... :)
