Blissmobox: A monthly box of greener goodness
The Blissmobox is a monthly subscription that delivers a cornucopia of organic and Fair Trade goodies right to your door.

A couple of weeks ago I received a box full of greener goodies in the mail. The people at Blissmo
sent me their Blissmobox
, a monthly "stuff in a box" club that focuses on eco-friendly products. Members of Blissmobox pay $22 a month to get a box full of things like all-natural energy bars, Fair Trade sugar, and organic teas.
Blissmo sends out an email at the beginning of each month to let members know what their options are for the next months box. Each box is built around a theme and there are usually a few for members to choose from. Blissmo claims that each box will have an average of $30 worth of products.
There is more value in this concept than just the money savings. This is a product discovery club. I already made some of the quinoa that was in my box and will definitely be buying it again. I can see that happening every month.
Full disclosure: Blissmo sent me a Blissmobox for free so I could review their service.
