College Care Packages: Succulents Subscription Boxes

Comment: I was sent a Succulents box. Thank you to Succulents Box for collaborating with Parenting Healthy

College Care Packages: Succulents Subscription Boxes

I remember the day we drove our son to College for the first time. It is exciting and there was so much planning that built up to that day, but again it is a bittersweet time as well. I went crazy on care packages. I found a local baker who would deliver cupcakes for special occasions, I would order pizza to his dorm, mail snack and med packs. College care packages are a fantastic tether with your child away at school.

If you have a daughter heading off to school or even need a care package for someone ill or going through a change the Succulents Subscription Boxes are so well done and my favorite way to receive the succulents is in their clay pots so they are ready for new spots in my home right away.

I was sent the 4-pack of succulents this month with clay pots. They came wrapped very well, none were damaged. Then I got to walk around my home and cheer up a few spaces that needed a small plant as company. My dining table got a pot (above is my favorite: Baby Necklace, a Crassula) and so did my mantle (a Dancing Bones and Moonglow).

Can you imagine being away in your first place or dorm and each month a new small succulent arrives to add some fresh decor to your space? This is why I think of students who are in need of fun college care packages to look forward too.

I also think that make great gifts to send to a new Mom or as a housewarming gift – new homes and new babies are a lot of work and succulents are so easy to care for. I think every hanging basket and plant IO was given at my house warming died in days because I set it down and was just too busy and overwhelmed with unpacking to give them care at that time.

ECOS Mother & Child Packaging Allows You To Reduce Plastic Consumption

ECOS Mother & Child Packaging Allows You To Bulk Buy & Is Eco-Friendly

For more reasons than one, this new bulk buy ECOS packaging is making my life so much easier. ECOS is a favorite brand of mine already because of its safe, eco-friendly and effective cleaning products but now they make packaging that helps my (already) out of control cleaning product shelves. It is called the Mother & Child packaging. Reduce Plastic Consumption with this new packaging!

This Mother & Child packaging is available for the dish soap and all-purpose cleaner. The smaller, everyday use size package snaps right into the refill package, making it really easy to use and reuse. The bottle you use everyday helps save you space in your cleaning shelves because of this genius design. 1 refill bottle gets you 5 full fills.

My fault is actually forgetting that I have a refill because I tend to tuck that extra bottle away and out of sight. I can literally snap these two pieces together with one hand. I still get the great environmentally-safe cleaner and save space by buying it this way while feeling good hat I can reduce plastic consumption at the same time.

ECOS laundry Reduce Plastic Consumption

If you want to know what other ways ECOS products help the environment, consider the ECOS Laundry Detergent sheets. It is not a pod or large plastic container of liquid, but simply a dissolving sheet you toss into your HE machine and wash your clothing and fabrics with hypoallergenic, plant-based detergent. I keep a box in the RV so when I do campsite laundry when we travel I can walk down with a sheet rather than pods that could burst open on me (I have had that happen before).

ECOS Mother & Child packaging makes it easy to be cost-conscious and reduce plastic consumption at the same time, while also keeping your family safe and healthy. You can find this design at Whole Foods stores.
