Citrus Lane Care Package Review

After I posted about Citrus Lane here they sent me an all-organic Fresh Start Box to try out. They created this box in collaboration with Healthy Child Healthy World, a nonprofit working to teach parents how to go green, one small step at a time, and donated a percent of their sales to support their mission. I received the items pictured above in my box (see below for descriptions of items). Unfortunately this box is sold out but you can still sign up for their monthly subscription which features a different box every month. The typical subscription is $25/month but you can sign up for 6 or 12 month packages and get 1-2 months free, respectively. The total value of items I got were over $50 so this a great way to try new green products and save some money. If you are not interested in green products I would say Citrus Lane is not for you.

Green Toys
Green Toys are made from 100% recycled milk containers! Their simple, sturdy toys stimulate even the youngest imaginations. This bright, fun tugboat will be the focus of years of bathtub games. The wide spout at the front allows it to scoop water—perfect for rinsing shampoo or an impromptu waterfall. Contains no BPA or phthalates.

Dolphin Organics
We support Dolphin Organics’ commitment to making natural and organic hair and skin products for families. They’re vegan, hypoallergenic and free of harsh chemicals. They’re even fragrance-free! Moms recommend these gentle products for babies, toddlers, and even big kids.

Happy Baby Food
Happy Baby Food’s special commitment to making healthy organic food—that’s also affordable—first got our attention. Then we tried these tasty snacks, in unusual flavors like mangosteen and yumberry, and we were sold! Happy Yogis are a delicious yogurt-and-fruit snack that’s perfect for kids on the go. We’ve sent you two packs, so you can keep one resealable bag in the car for snack emergencies—if it lasts that long!

Pangea Organics
We’re so happy to be able to share Pangea Organics’ fair-trade, cruelty-free cosmetics with you! This full-sized tube of vitamin-rich, organic lip balm will protect your lips from winter’s cold, dry air. We love its delicious but hard-to-place lavender cardamom scent. And it travels with you, so you can take a moment to care for yourself—even when you only have long enough to apply a little lip balm.

Plum District
Plum District isn’t just any deal site—they offer shopping, outings, and experiences especially for moms, at amazing discounts. And now, Plum District is sweetening the deals by sending you two $5 Plum District shopping cards! Many Plum deals are under $20, so it’s a fantastic value.

Bloume baby

We love Bloume baby’s commitment to finding sustainable, green baby products. We’re tempted by everything on their website, and we’re sure you will be, too. To help you get started, Bloume baby is sending you a coupon for 20% off your whole order.

I really enjoyed all the items I received in my box and I feel better knowing that all of the items are organic and chemical free. This is something I never cared much about before I was a mom but now I think twice about what we eat and use on a daily basis. I just can't wait till green & organic products are comparable in price to the everyday items because I can't afford to buy everything that is green & organic. You can check out Citrus Lane here.

*Thank you to Citrus Lane for letting us review your care package!
