Essentials Eco Winter Box Giveaway

Comments 90 by Rebecca Bollwitt

There’s a new quarterly subscription box in BC that focuses on sustainability and promoting products from Canadian, women-owned, and IBPOC businesses. Essentials Eco delivers curated subscription boxes featuring low-waste products designed to fit seamlessly into your daily routine — items like skincare, kitchen items, cleaning solutions, and more. They are now coming out with their very first Winter Box and you can enter to win one!

Essentials Eco

When the pandemic shuttered the events industry, Essentials Eco founder Brielle Hamalainen knew it was the right opportunity to launch the eco-centred business she had dreamed about for years. It was born out of a desire to make those first steps to sustainability easier, to simplify the transition and save time, and money.

The subscription boxes deliver eco-friendly plastic-free goods each quarter along with tips, tricks and ideas that will help you reduce your impact on the planet. “Our hope is that by bringing these items directly to your door in a fun accessible way we can make a small impact on our planet and our families,” says Brielle.

You can purchase one gift box or subscribe to a quarterly box delivery for the year. They are currently taking orders for the Holiday Box which will start shipping December 1st.

    I love the idea of these boxes. Trying to switch over to greener products can be overwhelming. Especially when a product doesn’t live up to it’s claims. It’s hard to keep finding and trying alternatives so a subscription box would take away some of the overwhelm of that.
