The bars are non-GMO, gluten free, kosher, Fair Trade, and just plain awesome. For every bar you buy, we give life-saving food to a child in need.
JusTea Purple Mint Tea This is a mint and rose petal tea, which sounds divine, but since I cannot drink rose petals, I will gift this to a friend. It sounds amazing,though. This is made with purple tea, which is a unique variety of tea that produces vibrant purple leaves. This tea is grown organically and are naturally purple because they contain anthocyanins, an antioxidant found in other purple/red fruits and berries and it is naturally low in caffeine. It comes in a biodegradable bag that you steep for 3 minutes and you can reuse the bag one more time as well!

WooBamboo Eco-Awesome Oral Care Tooth Brush I have used bamboo brushes before and I love the mission statement and how eco-friendly these products are. I do use manual tooth brushes for special care ~ if I am using a charcoal powder, for example. WooBamboo brushes are made from organically grown sustainable bamboo, so its brush handle is biodegradable, and it has high quality dental-grade tooth bristles. They are naturally anti-microbial, non-toxic, BPA free and lightly coated with natural Chinese white wax, while its packaging is made from recycled materials. WooBamboo partners with Operation Brush, where toothbrushes are donated to impoverished children around the world who don’t have access to basic oral hygiene supplies. WooBamboo can be also found at selected CVS stores ~ I will have to see if they are at my local CVS’s! They also make pet toothbrushes as well. RV $3.95 (the $7.90 cost is for a two-pack) Promo Code: Save 25% at WooBamboo with code yogi2525 and 25 cents goes to children in need. Expires 12/31/2017
Description: Why Bamboo Toothbrushes: There are over 7 billion people in the world, most of which brush their teeth with a typical plastic toothbrush. What is overlooked, however, is that most of these people go through several toothbrushes a year, equaling an incredible amount of waste in our oceans and landfills. Your WooBamboo won’t be one of them! The bamboo used is completely sustainably harvested. As you may know, bamboo is known to grow over 4 feet a DAY in the right conditions. Pretty awesome. Also, pandas don’t eat Moso bamboo, so we’re not taking away from the pandas’ food sources. Our toothbrush handles are completely biodegradable, so they won’t last forever in a landfill like every other brush! You can literally recycle the bristles, then throw the handle into your compost pile, where it will decompose naturally! Not only is this toothbrush excellent for the environment, plants, and animals, but it’s also good for you! The WooBamboo toothbrushes all feature high quality dental grade bristles, just like your plastic toothbrush at home. You’ll get the same clean, healthy teeth without any of the waste.

Headbands for Hope Sky Flower Tube Turban I was not sure if I would like this headband but I totally am in love with it! This is a beautiful blue headband with pink-gold mandala-like flowers. This is a tube turban, so it is wider and more comfortable than a regular headband. I have already purchased a couple of new designs as these are fantastic, I love mine and wear it all the time. This is made from 100% polyester, seamless and is 10 inches across and 20 inches high. You can wear it like a traditional headband by rolling it up or unroll to cover more area on your head and cover your ears. For every tube turban sold, Headbands for Hope donates one to a child with cancer. RV $18.00 Promo Code: Save $5.00 off your first purchase at Headbands for Hope with code FIRSTTIMER
Bonus Item: Yogi Surprise Yoga Sequence Series Card: Giving Back: Connect with yourself wholly in this sequence to inspire the desire to give back to people, organizations and groups that are meaningful to you. Yogi Surprise always has a sequence card in every lifestyle box with poses and positions that reflect the theme of the box.
Despite my late unboxing, this is a fantastic box! I do think that Yogi Surprise’s prices were just all over the place this month, as I found the tea to be only $10.00 and the tooth brush to be 1/2 the price, but for the most part, all of the value was there. The headband is fantastic and my favorite item in the box and I do love the orange scented hand cream as well. All of the items are great in here and I love how Yogi Surprise curated a box with brands that give back to some very important causes. This box has a retail value of almost $77.00.
