Good Stuff Box: The Little Box with BIG Impact.
Disclaimer: I was given the mentioned product for review purposes. All thoughts and opinions on this blog are my own.
Many people ask me how I find out about new and exciting businesses, products, and services –especially homegrown, local Manitoulin businesses. The funny thing is most of my discoveries are made either on Twitter or Instagram. Through engagement, I get to know interesting folks.
When The Good Stuff Box contacted me, I was keen to check out the subscription box because A) the concept comes from someone on Manitoulin Island (and you all know how I love to support all things related to this little island I love so much), and B) the concept of this subscription box intrigued me.

Good Stuff Box Review
Upon opening the box, we discovered carefully curated items from tea, to sea salt, to a beautiful scarf made from a retired sari.
Let’s take a look at the items selected for this Good Stuff Box:
TURMERIC TEAS – Winter warming organic ginger tea with turmeric root. This tea is a tea with benefits since in every cup of their signature blends is loaded with the benefits of turmeric. Not only that, but when you buy one, you feed one. Every purchase of a Turmeric Teas product helps feed people living with food insecurity. To read more about their Buy One, Feed One program, visit the site here.
VANCOUVER ISLAND SALT CO. – Orange & Lime Sea Salt. I was really excited about this because I saw that this is a Canadian company and a Canadian product. After visiting their website, I also learned that they are Canada’s first sea salt harvestry.
SCHMEAR – Also from Vancouver is SCHMEARnaturals 100% food-based skincare.
NAGI – Lemon Goji Berry Coconut. The bars are made in Canada. I have friends and family who will be happy to discover these energy bars because they are vegan, as well as gluten, soy, and dairy-free. I have a few friends who have Celiac and quite a few who are vegan, and gluten, soy and dairy-free.
DIDI BAHINI – Sister Scarf. The vibrant scarf (in my favourite colour – turquoise!) is made from a retired sari. The retired saris were worn by our sisters in the Himalayas. Didi Bahini is committed to creating connections between small business groups in Nepal and the international community. All their products are sustainably created and their artisans are paid fairly for their work.

This sounds like as very interesting subscription box – I like that items are Canadian. Didi Bahini’s sustainably created scarves are a wonderful idea.
