This month I was very kindly gifted a Vegan Maxi Box to try out, from the team at The Goodness Project. Despite Royal Mail being super awkward about actually handing it over to me and keeping it hostage, I’ve finally got round to having a detailed look through all the goodies inside and trying out some of the bits and bobs included.
The Goodness Project are an all encompassing snack/gift/subscription website. Originating in London and founded on a frustration about the lack of organic and whole foods options, they offer subscription boxes, corporate gifts and snacks, hampers and lots of other bits. It’s all available online which means 24/7 shopping [YAS].
In terms of subscription boxes, which I love for their variety of items and brands, not all the options are vegan – there’s a specifically vegan box, a gluten free box and a classic box. You can then split down the options to the box size. This is great because it means you can control the cost and one of the options is letterbox friendly which is a great idea for anyone who lives in a flat (or has issues with Royal Mail.. ahem).
I was sent a vegan maxi box, which has 10 items in it and varies each month. 8 items were food/snacks, there was a drink and also a body care item. To buy this box as a standalone is £17.95 plus postage, directly from The Goodness Project, but it works out cheaper overall to buy a 3 or 6 month subscription.
The box came with an index card which tells you a little about everything inside the box, a little about the brand and their website.
I really enjoyed that this particular box had a body care item in it, as I haven’t come across mixed boxes before. The brands are always vegan and cruelty free so, again, another way to find great new brands and products, without having to trawl through websites to find recommendations!
Overall I really liked The Goodness Project’s vegan box – the quality, it’s presentation and the contents were really good and had a “high end” feel to it, with some well known brands like Livia’s kitchen and Ombar. Overall, the cost of the box works out well for the quality of items that you get, but it would be even better if the price also included the postage.
Has anyone else tried out these boxes or the other goodies that TGP do? I’ve got my sights set on some of their hampers for Christmas presents!
