I am so excited to show you all of the amazing products that were included in the Hydrate Box, all items emphasize the importance of staying hydrated! First I want to share with you the stunning GlobeIn Signature Handwoven Basket! The basket is made using the traditional “tenate” design. Handcrafted from discarded palm leaves by indigenous Oaxacan artisans and colored using natural, water-borne paints, each basket can take up to six hours to weave. These decorative and whimsical baskets make beautiful home storage options, lending a pop of color and handcrafted warmth to children’s bedrooms, bathroom storage, kitchen countertops or as gift packaging for loved ones.
Hydrating the body is more than just grabbing a cup of water, it is also essential to make sure you keep your skin well hydrated! The Conscious Coconut Oil Keep is great for using as a moisturizer, hair conditioner, shaving cream, sun protection, itch relief, treatment of scars and infections, oral care, makeup removal, and more! This miracle product makes it as essential to your day as its essential oils are to your body, particularly your skin. Inspired by just how much the coconut has to offer, Conscious Coconut addresses each phase of their production line with love, from donating a meal to a child with each purchase, to employing and empowering developmentally disabled adults to package the product, to prepaying their farmers to ensure their basic needs are met.
Take a look at this beautiful Hand Blown Mexican Glass. It takes a talented artisan to form molten glass into elegant, coherent shapes. Many such artisans live in the city of Tonalá in the Mexican state of Jalisco, a handicraft hub, especially of pottery and glass. Dedicated to preserving this artform, Cristaluc was established in 2001 and today employs 40 local artisans. The company provides its artisans a steady income and a supportive and inspiring space to practice their art. The process of making this glass involved 8 to 14 glassmakers working as team. Despite its hot and blob-like beginnings, this glass is sure to bring you some cool, clarifying moments.
Up next is the Organic Lemongrass Lip Balm! Since bees source their pollen from wide swathes of land, organic beeswax indicates the presence of a large, utterly wild region, untainted by chemicals. The beeswax and exotic mungongo oil in this lip balm were sourced from the unspoiled forests of central Africa, where Brownd (Kahona) Kalenda and his wife and family live. Kahona works hard to bring beeswax to the world while helping the people of his community. He loves being able to give widows meaningful employment and a fair and living wage through work with Zambeezi. As a company, Zambeezi is committed to providing the people of Africa’s pristine subtropical forests sources of income other than timber and strip mining, sources more sustainable for people and land alike.
The last item is the Upcycled Tote Bag. This eco-friendly tote bag is made from upcycled water sachets from the streets of Accra, Ghana. It zips up into a handy pouch for easy storage, and unzips to make a large, sturdy tote that’s perfect for grocery shopping or a roomy day bag. These bags provide employment for young women in Ghana.
