Sustainable living is becoming more and more popular these days. I also understand the negative impact of human activity on Earth, but I have never known where to start from. Well, I sort the garbage and recycle as much as I can, but I still feel that this is not enough. So, I was lucky to come across Alltrue company that offers quarterly subscription boxes of sustainable products. What’s more, they also educate about sustainable choices we can make in everyday life.
I didn’t weigh cons and pros long and I subscribed to Alltrue, besides the cost is quite affordable - just $54.95 for 6-8 socially conscious products of over $250 value, plus shipping is free (except Alaska and Hawaii). In addition, I can choose up to 3 items in the box to adjust to my needs which is really good.
Last week my first spring box arrived and after testing and using all the products I think I can write my review. The box itself is quite large and the it is of mauve color with flowers depicted on it to symbolize the spring nature revival.
On opening the box I see the Alltrue spring 2022 magazine. It has the descriptions of all the products that are in the box, information about the companies that make them and their sustainable practices. On the last page I found coupon code ALLTRUE-SP22 valid through 07.01.22. as well as members deals from Alltrue partners, including Earth Harbor, Sandbar Beauty, Daily Concepts and others.

This is how the products are packed in a box.
So, let’s look into the contents of the box.
Daily Exfoliating Mitt by Daily Concepts ($16)
The mitt is used for scrubbing the body while taking a shower or a bath. It’s not a secret that exfoliation enhances skin revitalization and even boosts lymphatic drainage. So, what is sustainable in this mitt, you may ask?
Daily Concepts in partnership with Clean Hub is committed to helping clean the ocean. Plus, the company is involved in charity project that provides the shower facilities to the homeless. Well, I think they are doing a lot by helping those in need and protecting the ocean.
Wet/Dry Brush by Kitsch ($16)
Having a quality hairbrush that effectively brushes your hair without damaging it is a must for every woman. This brush is excellent for everyday use and gently does its job either on dry or wet hair. Unlike an ordinary plastic brush this one is made of recycled materials. Is vegan and cruelty free. I have long wavy hair and, in the morning, or during the windy weather it gets tangled easily. I’ve tried hundreds of brushes so far and now I can say with confidence that my search is over. It works so delicately that I now have less torn or broken hair after brushing it. I’m totally happy with the product!
Sunstone Hair Revive Elixir by Earth Harbor ($30)
The list of ingredients in this elixir is simply amazing. It includes Coconut Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Sesame Seed Oil, Poppy Seed Oil, Olive Oil, Carrot Seed Oil, sunflower Vitamin E, Sunflower Seed Oil, Calendula Flower, Seaweed Extract and more. I’ve used it 4 times already and I see the result: my hair is not dull anymore. It got revived. It feels smoother and looks much healthier. Before washing my hair, I apply the elixir onto my sculp and hair ends, keep it as long as I can, usually up to an hour, if I have the time, and them wash my hair. The product really works for me and I’m going to keep using it. During the summer hair suffers from the sun too and it needs extra nourishment. Excellent job by Earth Harbor. Sunstone Hair Revive is vegan and cruelty free that is why it is recommended by Alltrue.
Brightening Biocellulose Sheet Mask+Hydrating Blueberry Hydrogel Eye Patch + Hydrating Watermelon lip Mask By Soon Skincare
Treat yourself to a salon like pampering experience with this Soon Skincare kit. This Korean brand uses simple and clean ingredients and promises long lasting results.
I tried all three products, and they are really good for the skin, although it’s hard to say about the results after just one try.
Silicon Stretch Lids by altCooking Hub ($8)
This set of 6 silicone stretch lids is a must-have in the kitchen. The lids can be stretched over a bowl or even a glass to preserve what’s left over fresh. If you use them regularly your food waste will be less, plus the other benefit of these lids is that they are fully sustainable.
Dual Handle Fry Pan by Brooklyn Steel Co. ($49.99)
This pan with double handles has nonstick surface and is made from sustainable materials. The pan has multi-layered ceramic coating of light blue color that ensures the food you cook doesn’t stick and it is easy to clean up afterwards. It is sleek, lightweight and practical at the same time and its intricate design makes it stand out. It’s my favorite in the kitchen now.
Umbrella by Beau Nuage ($40)
There can’t be too many umbrellas at home. This one is so cute with its khaki green color being in contrast with feminine dotted pattern. In fact, dotted pattern immediately adds some French chic to it.
This tiny umbrella is a must have during the trip as it is so small and lightweight that you can easily keep it in your tote bag all the time just in case it rains. It can be hard to believe but the umbrella is made of recycled plastic bottles, so it is a sustainable and recycled product and by using it you contribute to protecting the environment.
Summing up I can say that I am happy with the contents and the quality of the products I received. I am using all of these products and the cost of subscription is much less than their retail value. I am happy to learn about companies that work hard to protect the environment and make this world a cleaner and safer place to live in.
