The I LIVE ECO box filled with curated sustainable products delivered right to your door seasonally, its the only Subscription Box You Will Need This Summer!
Subscription boxes have become one of the hottest gifts to give in Canada with many of them offering a curated assortment of products delivered right to your door.
Being environmentally conscious and thinking about sustainability is at the top of our list these days! And with the new subscription box from I LIVE ECO you can consider the planet when using everyday products and essentials.
The I LIVE ECO subscription box solves two main problems. First, if you are making the switch to a more eco-friendly lifestyle, this is a great way to get to know sustainable brands you might not have access too.
Second, if you are looking for a great gift for someone but don’t know what they have or don’t have the time to shop, a hand-picked box of goodies might just be your best bet.
Most subscription boxes come with a theme and I simply love I LIVE ECO, these beautiful little boxes are packed full with hand-picked eco goodies that are guaranteed to be green, sustainable and plastic-free.
I got to meet the brand owner Genevieve (Gen) Atangan a little while back and was super impressed with everything she is doing. After a trip to the Philippines and learning how locals used bamboo to make straws, she decided to quit her corporate job and do something more meaningful by bringing this innovative straw back to Toronto (helping us to kick plastic to the curb) and at the same time supporting and giving back to children in her first home.
The two came together perfectly to create I LIVE ECO. In each product she creates, she doesn’t just see the item, she sees a child’s life that can be changed. Each customer and subscriber is a partner to Gen, working towards loving, honouring, and healing our planet together.
Gen says “We have worked with purpose-driven brands such as “ela Handbags”, Wyld Skincare, and the Better Skin Co. We love collaborating with like-minded brands so reach out if you have a great green brand and are interested in being part of the box”
When you subscribe to I LIVE ECO you are supporting two wonderful charities. They plant 1 tree for every new subscription through One Tree Planted, which is a non-profit organization and environmental charity, whose mission is to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees.
They also donate 1% of their revenue from online sales to The Sun Crew, an organization based in Siargao Island in the Philippines that works to teach children about the importance of protecting the environment and to help them build skills to improve their future prospects. They use surfing as a tool to build brighter futures for local children and to protect the environment.
The summer box is simply Divine!
What do you get in each box?
Each box comes with default contents:
9 x Earthsuds shampoo tablets, if you have not tried this plastic-free body and hair washes you must! I wrote a whole blog on how I made the switch! If you are looking to reduce the volume of plastic coming into your bathroom, these are the perfect swap.
1 x Colibri reusable food bag, this is a MUST-HAVE in any eco home, great for sandwiches, bagels, muffins and fits two sliced apples. Get creative and use them to organize phone chargers, medications etc. while travelling. The kitchen is the most wasteful area in the home, we produce a lot of waste in the form of food packaging, using these types of bags helps to reduce the amount of plastic wrap you are using in the home significantly.
1 x All Good Products’ SPF50+ Mineral Sunscreen Butter. A summer essential! Made from organic ingredients and zinc-oxide, this reef-friendly butter physically blocks UVA/UVB rays and goes on thick to protect your skin in the most extreme environments (even if that extreme environment is your community pool). Super hydrating and easy to blend thanks to coconut oil and jojoba oil, this sunscreen doesn’t leave your skin greasy and won’t clog your pores (sensitive skin, rejoice!). Zinc oxide actually sits on top of your skin to physically block UVA and UVB rays, and beeswax gives this butter an extra “oomph” in the water department (water-resistant for 80 minutes). Broad-spectrum SPF in a handy dandy portable tin – can I get a yeehaw for reusable packaging? Rub a dub dub, the best sunscreen butter in a tub. Now, when it comes to sunscreen it’s complicated, we’ve broken it down for you in this handy guide.
1 x Colibri Facemask, I simply love these so much, mask are now mandatory in Toronto so this is perfect timing, and these are reusable and wash so well. Have you seen the news with the disposable masks in the ocean!? It’s also really important to know how to safely use a mask.
On top of all the super-natural items above you can also choose from the following, another reason why I love this subscription box so much!
2 Items for Selection:
1x Foxy Original’s Bee Bracelet in Gold (exclusive to our store, not available anywhere else) OR
1x Foxy Original’s Brook Earrings
Foxy is a made in Canada brand that has the cutest selection of goodie. 🙂
1x Dalcini’s Bistro & Snacker Lunchbox ComboOR
1x Dalcini’s Twist Top Trio
A word on Dalcini!
I simply cannot live without mine. I use these at home, at school, at the cottage, or when on vacation. You can store berries in the freezer, tomato sauce in the fridge, pasta salad for lunch, or make oatmeal while camping. You can even use the in the oven. The screw-top lids is useful for storing a variety of foods, including acidic, fragrant, or oily foods which can often wreak havoc on traditional food storage containers. Made without the use of lead, aluminum or hormone-disrupting chemicals, and with the use of plastic or silicone, there is no landfill waste.
Wait there is more:

1 x bamboo sunglasses and
1x Nadia Lloyd’ designed sunglass cleaner
