Enjoy Organic Cotton Sheets, Towels & Duvets by Subscription Plans

If you follow my blog you know that I love to pay special attention to brands that give back especially that are earth-friendly and sustainable. Brands like Coyuchi that go beyond a product to bring a service to allow everyone a chance to enjoy organic and sustainable products in affordable ways are a huge benefit to us all.

Did you know 10 million tons of textiles—e.g. clothes, bedding, towels, etc.—end up in landfills each year. That’s a pile of sheets and towels 150% the size of the Great Pyramid in Egypt!

Enjoy Organic Cotton Sheets, Towels & Duvets by Subscription Plans

I recently partnered with Coyuchi—a pioneer in organic sheets, towels, and sleepwear—to explore the importance of sustainable home linens and share the good news about their new linen subscription service.

For 25 years, Coyuchi has been a leader in natural and organic home linens that are good to both you and the planet. Now Coyuchi is launching ‘Coyuchi for Life,’ a first-of-its-kind subscription service for environmentally sustainable and organic sheets, towels, and duvet covers.

With ‘Coyuchi for Life,’ users subscribe to organic bed and bath linens from Coyuchi in 6-, 12-, or 24-month increments. When the subscription period is up, customers send back used linens to be recycled or renewed, and receive a new set. The service allows consumers to subscribe to sustainability and change their sheets for good.
THREE REASONS TO FALL IN LOVE WITH SUSTAINABLE HOME LINENS 
 1. LESS IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT ON MANY LEVELS
Textile waste in landfills takes up space and decomposing natural fibers release methane gas, a potent pollutant that contributes to climate change. Reclaiming textiles and keeping them from entering the landfill in the first place has many positive benefits.
2. ORGANIC, HIGH-QUALITY BEDDING STARTING AT $5/MONTH
Coyuchi sheets, duvets, and towels are made from natural and organic fibers, free of the toxic dyes, bleaches, and finishes used in conventional textiles. Coyuchi for Life subscriptions make it easy to get new linens every 6, 12 or 24 months starting as low as $5/month for towels or $7/month for sheets and duvets. They are also GOTS-certified—the highest organic standard for cotton, all over the world.
3. SUSTAINABILITY WITHOUT SACRIFICE

‘Coyuchi For Life’ subscribers enjoy the luxury of fresh, new organic sheets, towels, and duvet covers, while also making it easy to recycle their old linens (something which is harder than one would think). Beautiful bedding that feels good, supports a healthy home and cleaner environment, for roughly the price of a Netflix subscription? It’s a no-brainer.

GREAT Kids Snack Box Subscription #HolidayGiftguide

Sample box sent for feature

 great-kids-snacks

Here is a fun gift idea for a family. It is the GREAT Kids Snack Box subscription. This box is loaded with healthy snacks kids will love. I choose the word loaded because it was like a never ending supply of snacks in one box. It has ben so nice having these around as he grabs one to put in his backpack pocket for his first recess snack at school each day.

great-kids-honey

As my son went through this boc, he quickly found some familiar snacks like Honey Stinger which he loves. He found some Justin’s PB cups and Popchips Ridges to name a few.

great-snack-fruit

GREAT Kids Snack Box is a subscription service bringing a box full of healthy snacks for $29.95 to $39.95 a month. I have a promo code for your first box-see below. I figure that at about $5-$6 a full size bag or box of snacks, I would buy a few at this subscription rate and not know if my son will even like them. I love these boxes so that you can try before you buy.

Back To School 2016, Brands with a Cause, Healthy Living

Boka Natural Oral Care Boxes

Sample sent for feature

Boka-Dental-Subscription | Parenting Healthy | http://parentinghealthy.com/

Back to school has happened and there are so many tasks to add to our daily schedule. Back to homework, school lunches, events, bus routes, bedtime and meal routines. In a perfect world we would have extra time in our day to be 100% on top of our normal healthy regimen from dental hygiene to bacterial and cold and flu health and prevention. As for our oral care we would brush after each meal-even at school-in that perfect world. Instead we send the kids off to burger day or salad bar at the school and that meal sits on their teeth and hopefully they didn’t crash on us at night getting used to the new routine before they brushed their teeth.

Boka has made oral care health a no-brainer. Not only do they put together natural dental products for you and your children, they even make it easy to remember when to switch out your toothbrushes which need to happen every 3 months.

You can subscribe or shop at Boka. If you subscribe, you can see the products being sent to you from within the shop. Most boxes are monthly subscriptions for various products that can run anywhere from $15-$30 or more each box. The Boka box kit starts at just $14.50 and that is for every 3 months. You build a kit for your family and every 3 months a new one arrives-just in time for fresh toothbrush changes for everyone.

I sampled a kit and in my kit is:

  • Oral Health Care Guide
  • Natural Toothpaste-Mint
  • Mint Floss
  • 1 Toothbrush
  • 2 Natural cocorinse packets for natural oil pulling

I priced my kit out to be $14.50 every 3 months (the oil pulling samples were extra throw-ins). If I wanted to commit to a year, the price works out to be only $12.33 per box (every 3 months). That means that to subscribe to a Boka kits per person you will pay $4.11-$4.83 a month. The floss alone is $4. Of all subscriptions kits I have ever seen from beauty to health and even pets, this is by far the best in cost.

Boka toothbrushes have black bristles for a reason. This is because Boka toothbrushes are made with activated charcoal. These activated charcoal will naturally help prevent odor causing bacteria from building up on your brush. The bristles are soft so it is gentle on your gums and the ends are tapered so it can tackle the plaque easier. Also for every Boka brush purchased, they will donate a toothbrush to their nonprofit partner Surge. They work hard to bring life-sustaining water to those in need.

The Boka toothpaste and floss are all natural. The toothpaste is made with natural ingredients and essential oils like peppermint and mint. There is no SLS, fluoride, triclosan, artificial flavors or parabens. The floss is wrapped in natural beeswax and is Teflon and petroleum-free.
