What We Love About CAUSEBOX
- This subscription service is all about doing good, sourcing products that are ethically-made, sustainably-sourced, and cruelty-free. Many featured brands donate a portion of proceeds to charities, and/or employ local artisans.
- Welcome and Intro boxes are available to new members, and annual members get to choose all the products they’ll receive in their intro box! After that, they’ll get to customize about 5 (out of 6-8) products in future shipments.
- This quarterly subscription offers free shipping for those living in the contiguous U.S
- CAUSEBOX opens their Add-On Market for limited windows at a time, and is accessible to quarterly and annual subscribers alike.
What You Should Know

I’ve tried a few different subscription boxes but this one is my favourite. I feel like I’m their target market though (30s female, who likes receiving “home” items, like silicone baking tray liners 😄). If I was in my early 20s, I might likely prefer a different box..
Their customer service has been helpful with me so far. I've had to contact them twice about two mishaps and they're responsive. If you care about the wellbeing of those that give intention to what they create or design/want to empower other people/support fair trade/products that can help you reduce your carbon footprint = this is the box for you in the subscription box market.
I've had the subscription since 2020. This is my first subscription box ever (besides vitamins and supplements) and I'm gonna continue until I research other eco-conscious ones that catch my eye. If you're interested in the quantity of products you get in the box vs the actual quality of products, this box will not work for you. Your box will not be filled to the brim. The yearly is $199. Each item I've received so far has a purpose in my home and lifestyle.
I have only received 2 boxes so far and have loved everything so far. I can’t wait for the Spring box to arrive.
I have only received one box so far (The Spring Box) and I loved every single thing in it! The quality and curation is great, and I can't wait for the summer box
I have officially received 3 boxes from causebox and absolutely love this subscription box. The products are great quality and come from artisans all over the world. Every product has a story behind it and you can read about them in a booklet that they send you in your box each season.
Customer service has always been great and helpful.
The only downfall so far is the way they ship the boxes, once receiving the email that the box has shipped it takes 12+ days for it to get to your doorstep, but if your patient you should be ok.
This Fall box will be my fourth box which means I have no gotten all seasons. I was really worried about this box because fall colors are not really my thing and therefore I don't always like fall themed products. After seeing the spoilers, I could not be happier. I am in love with this box! I have subscribed to quite a few boxes and so far Causebox is my favorite! Not only do they have amazing products that support great causes but the customer service is the best. I had a slight issue with a couple of products that was not the fault of Causebox itself but rather the product packaging and with no questions asked they replaced the products very quickly. I have had to cut back on spending as I have transferred from a community college to a four year institution and that has put a strain on my budget. I have cut back many things but Causebox remains as my self care. Thank you Causebox for all that you do for the artisans as well as your customers!
I can't say enough good things about Causebox. First of all, all the products featured are for a good cause. They're usually fair trade too. Secondly, every product is useful and beautiful. Typically, any beauty products are natural/organic, which is a huge draw for me. Finally, they listen to subscribers' feedback. The last box didn't have any earrings - I can't wear them, so I asked if they could consider giving us an option of switching earrings or not having them in the box. I love how anything in the box that I don't like would make an awesome gift.
Summer 2017 was my favorite so far! It was amazing enough that my husband is finally convinced that Causebox is a good investment.
I so enjoy getting this box! It's filled with purposeful, eco-friendly gifts that have a wonderful story behind them. The booklet they include is a great read. Usually I like to be completely surprised by what's in a subscription box but I do like with this one that you can pick out a few of the gifts. It keeps me from having multiples of things sometimes. I haven't had any issues with customer service or delivery but haven't had any reason to contact them to date. I think the value is great for this box!
I subscribed to Causebox for the yearly subscription in 2019. I really loved the products, and the concept behind the box. What I didn't like was their hyper focus on customer acquisition vs. customer retention. They were constantly advertising deals and items to draw in new customers that weren't available to existing customers. While all companies do this to some extent, it seemed that Causebox did it more aggressively. The few times I reached out to customer service to express my disappointment, the responses I got were basically the equivalent of a shrug emoji.
How much does CAUSEBOX shipping cost?
CAUSEBOX ships to the contiguous U.S. for free. They ship to Hawaii, Alaska, all U.S. territories (including Guam), and Canada for $7.95.
Can I customize my CAUSEBOX?
Yes, if you’re an annual subscriber, you’ll have a say in customization! When you sign up for an annual CAUSEBOX subscription you’ll qualify for CAUSEBOX Custom, which lets you choose certain items in your boxes from a list of options.
Where can I learn more about the makers featured in CAUSEBOX?
Each quarterly box comes packed with a booklet full of information about each product, its origins, and other tips and anecdotes. The beautifully designed booklet offers information and interviews about the makers and designers whose products have been included in that season’s spread.
What’s inside the CAUSEBOX Welcome Box?
If you sign up for CAUSEBOX after the regular seasonal box has sold out, you’ll be sent a Welcome Box. They contain a combination of most-loved products from past boxes, favorites from the most recently sold out box, and new exclusives from companies CAUSEBOX has a partnership with. Just like the regular seasonal boxes, Welcome Boxes contain a $200+ value.
What’s the CAUSEBOX Add-On Market?
When you sign up for a quarterly or annual membership with CAUSEBOX, you’ll gain access to their Add-On Market (also known as their members-only market). It’s an online shop that carries a seasonal curation of sustainable products at up to 70% off retail prices. The Add-On Market is only open for certain windows at a time, but members can revisit it and make multiple purchases within that window. Add-On Market purchases will be shipped separately from seasonal boxes.
What types of products might I find in the CAUSEBOX Add-On Market?
The CAUSEBOX Add-On Market features the same types of luxe lifestyle products you’re used to seeing in your seasonal boxes! You can expect to see cruelty-free skincare products like moisturizer, serums, toners, and more, home items from conscious brands, self-care and wellness products, and more.
When is the CAUSEBOX Add-On Market open?
CAUSEBOX opens its Add-On Market full of favorite items to both quarterly and annual members at the beginning of each season. You’ll know it’s open when you visit the CAUSEBOX website and see a banner at the top of their homepage.
Does CAUSEBOX automatically renew?
