Earth Day Conscious Box Giveaway

I'm excited to bring you an Earth Day Giveaway from Educents and Conscious Box!! They have teamed up to bring a lucky winner a Conscious Box delivered right to their door!!  Conscious Box offers a monthly subscription service that delivers the purest, most natural products on the planet, right to your doorstep!

So why am I hosting this giveaway, if it's not inherently related to speech?   

If you remember, I posted about going green in your speech room. You can read that here, if you missed it.   This is where it all started: I cannot even begin to tell you my reaction this summer when my supervisor asked me to wipe down the preschool table with 409!  She said, "Well, just do it when the kids are outside, so they don't smell it."  For me, it's just as bad that they were about to eat off the table 10 minutes later! Not only are the fumes bad, the chemicals could get onto their food or pencils or papers or whatever you have on your table. YUCK. And you know kids-the second they get a chance to put something in their mouths, they will! I have converted to using all-natural, nontoxic products when cleaning. This is healthier and safer for the students and for you!

 So here's the scoop:  Conscious Box puts together new boxes each month full of "surprises."  All of them are healthy, green products.  Since it is a surprise, there's no way for me to know what exactly is in the box this next month (May).  However, some of the products in the past have included: St. Claire’s Organics, Gluten Free Beauty, Essential Living Foods, Caveman Fuel, Earth Friendly Products, Artisana Cacao Bliss, Natural Vitality, Himala Salt, and Soapbox Soaps. 

So again, why am I posting this?  Well...a few things:

1. We can teach our students about being healthy especially on Earth Day!! 
2. We can clean our rooms with green products. 
3. Maybe there will be a product in there that you can use in your classroom!! 

There will be ONE winner.  If you do not win, you can still get a 3-month subscription to Conscious Box for less than $12/month by heading over to For one week only, Educents will be offering the Conscious Box for 40% off!  In addition, ALL profits from the sale of this box will be donated to The One Fund, which will provide funds to help those families most affected by the tragic events that unfolded during Monday’s Boston Marathon.

  1. I would use these products to clean my room and talk with my students why its good to use natural products!

  2. Same as Felice! Also I'm a natural product nut so this would be so up my alley!

  3. what a cool idea. I am just learning about conscious box. What a great way to bring in some non-fiction google research for my students. Written language activities for compare/contrast of toxics vs. green products. And facts/opinion statements. Lessons on reading labels and categorizing green/healthy. Also writing adds for these new products that they have learned about.

  4. I love all of these amazing monthly boxes! My pup gets one -- BarkBox -- and we love it! This one sounds like a great way to start going green! Thanks for posting!

  5. I think this is a great giveaway! We should teach kids about using natural products and going green. I would use these products to clean our speech room.

  6. I love finding something new! I was using vinegar + water mix as a natural disinfectant but the smell takes away to dissipate. I still like it for the laundry though--especially when towels get that funk from laying in the kids rooms wet....

  7. Its a great way to showcase natural items, as well as vegan ones (they have a vegan box!)
