PicsArt_1378749013471

I can’t believe Summer is basically over and we’re already into another school year. The past couple of weeks have been a blur. Our family got back from vacation and went straight into back-to-school madness. It’s crazy moments like this that make me look even more forward to my Ecocentric Mom Discovery Box each month. It’s such a nice surprise to come home to after a busy day of errands and running around shopping for groceries and school supplies!  It’s a little treat for me. 😉 This month I got plenty of great goodies again. Check them out…

ips All Natural Chips ~ Yum! These snacks are Non-GMO and contain no preservatives. They contain 7 grams of protein and are made with egg whites. How unique! I received both the Aged White Cheddar and Cinnamon Sugar varieties. They are very good and satisfying. Great alternative to conventional chips and puff-type snacks. One bag sells for $1.59 to $1.99.

Truebar by Bakery On Main ~ Another great healthy snack! I love trying out new snack bars because I’m always on the go and need quick nutritious options. Trubar is dairy and casein free, GFCO Certified Gluten Free, Kosher OU Parve, and Non-GMO. It is made with chia seeds for a good source of Omega 3. I received the Walnut Cappuccino flavored bar. Very tasty. Each bar sells for $1.89. I also got a 10% online coupon and a 50 cents off retail coupon.

MacroLife Naturals Coco Greens and Berri Reds Nutrient Rich Super-Foods ~ Such a nice surprise to get these. I have used MacroLife Naturals for a couple of years now. It is a great way to ensure your kids get their fruits and veggies on those off days when they’re being picky. They contain 3.5 Bil. Probiotics and Enzymes for immune support. Just add it to a smoothie and they will love the taste. You can get a 32-day canister for $22.99 or a 64-day canister for $42.99. So worth it!

Moontime Tea’s Organic Fertility Blend ~ I received 2 sample tea bags of this delicious combo of organic red raspberry, nettle, red clover and peppermint. All of these naturally caffeine free herbs have been known to help support reproductive function. A pouch of 30 tea bags goes for $19.99. I also received a 20% online discount.

Suncoat Sugar Based Natural Mascara ~ My favorite goody in the box! Who told that I was in need of a new mascara? I make sure to replace my make-up every 4 months to keep germs and bacteria at bay. This was perfect timing. More importantly, this mascara is great for sensitive eyes like mine. It is vegan, free of PVP, acrylic copolymer, VA polymer, fragrance, parabens, alcohol and glycol. (Yeah, all that junk is in popular mascaras!)  Suncoat mascara is made with natural ingredients, including vitamin E, It builds volume and length…and is eco-friendly! At $14.99 it’s a deal!

Suncoat Girl Nail Polish ~ I’m loving this line…another favorite! I only buy nail polish that does not contain harmful chemicals and toxins…especially since my little one is always asking for a mani-pedi. Well, she is also loving this nail polish and the pretty pink shade we received. Suncoat polish is 100% free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, acetates, synthetic colors, VOCs…all the bad stuff we inhale and receive when we go to the salon. It is made with natural ingredients and mineral pigments. Sells for $7.99 per bottle.

Pure + Remedy ~ Another great line! I received travel size samples of the Gentle Hydrating Moisturizer, which sells for $3.50 (regular size goes for $20). I also received a Vitamin C Concentrate Facial Moisturizer sample, which sells for $4 (regular size goes for $24). Although I haven’t started using them yet, I am pretty confident I will love them, as this is a holistic and natural skin care line, made with high quality and organic ingredients. I also received a 20% discount code.

Possum Hollow Farm Soap ~ This was a nice surprise, as it is a family run small business in Bucks County, not far from where I live in PA. The travel size bar I received is all natural and scented with essential oils. The soap is very gentle and leaves your skin feeling hydrated and soft. Possum Hollow Farm offers soaps designed with mom and babies in mind. A full size bar sells for $5.50. I received a 10% online discount too.

Untrash Compostable Bags ~ I was just saying to a friend the other day that I really need to find a good, eco-friendly trash bag. So far I’m really liking Untrash. I received an assortment of 3-gallon, 13-gallon and sandwich bags. I’m a new fan of this line. While it’s great that most cities pick up recycling nowadays, 1/3 of US residents send food scraps to landfills in plastic trash bags. Untrash is a great and convenient solution to helping reduce waste. A box of 18 3-gallon bags sells for $4.99; 10 13-gallon bags goes for $6.99; 50 sandwich bags sell for $4.99. You can even get a compost can for $24.99! I definitely plan on using my 25% off discount code. I also received $10 off a compost can.

August GIft Card ~ $10 for The Keeper or The Moon Cup, both eco-friendly feminine hygiene products.

Special Gift ~ $5 gift card for Instagrad, the gift of education. Start a college or savings fund for your little one, making it easy for family and friends to contribute too.
