7 Cool Subscription Boxes with a Cause
Subscription boxes are like getting a birthday present every month, so what could make them better? Well, knowing that your money is also going toward charities or non-profit organizations certainly doesn’t hurt! While there are boxes like Causebox that are specifically dedicated to being socially conscious, there are also tons of other cool subscription boxes that you may not realize also happen to donate to charities. These are some of the best subscription boxes on the market that give back.

Causebox is specifically designed to give while increasing the knowledge of socially conscious brands. Each season, you’ll receive a box full of beautifully curated products including teas, nail polish, hand cream, clothing, and a variety of lifestyle products. The subscription ranges in price from $49.95 to $54.95 based on your plan with a $150 value in every box.
How does Causebox help? According to Causebox’s frequently asked questions, every box donates a percentage to a charitable cause. Additionally, every box contains five to eight products that are hand-selected to promote companies that care about social matters including mental health and global aid.
As our editor and her sweet kitten Laz just found out, cat subscription boxes are kind of awesome. Even though cats are the most self-sufficient creatures on the planet, they still love to play with the occasional stuffed toy or drink some special kitty-designed wine. KitNipBox sends you monthly goodies for $19.99 or $29.99 per month (based on the size of your family) that will entertain your kitty for hours.
KitNipBox is also incredibly unique as being one of the few animal subscription boxes that donates a portion of its proceeds every month to animal-specific charities. There are over 100 animal welfare organizations that KitNipBox gives to each month including The Paw Project, Animal Care and Control of NYC, Brooklyn Animal Action, and the San Francisco SPCA.
Have a doggo instead of a kitty? BarkBox is the subscription box you need to get your best friend. Similar to KitNipBox, BarkBox will send you a box of goodies for your dog including at least two innovative toys, two all-natural bags of treats, a chew, and a curated item for $21 to $29 per month. Best of all, it’s designed for your dog’s size – your chews will last longer than an hour!
BarkBox loves to support rescues and shelters to help foster permanent adoptions. After all, what’s better than the connection you have with your dog? For each new BarkBox subscription, the company donates a portion to a charity that helps save all the puppers.

There are tons of cool subscription boxes on the market for beauty and accessories, but not all of them are cruelty-free. Love Goodly is one of the best subscription boxes on the market if you want beauty products and accessories that are eco-friendly, vegan, and natural. For $29.99 every other month, Love Goodly delivers an assortment of candles, necklaces, body oil, makeup, and other lifestyle items.

Snacking is not only delicious, but it can help you lose weight. It’s hard to know what’s healthy, but Love With Food makes it easy. The company focuses on helping you snack without grabbing the closest bag of chips. For as little as $7.99, you can get a delicious assortment of all-natural, organic, or gluten-free snacks to munch on every month.
We can all agree that snacking is pretty awesome, but donating to a food bank may be even better.

I love to curl up with a warm glass of tea, a book, and my favorite pair of cozy socks. But I hate plain socks, which is why I love Sock Panda. This company has a subscription service where you can get a new pair of socks every month for just $12 per month. There’s a variety of designs including patterns and designs with faces, animals, or themes.
The socks are adorable, but Sock Panda is also fantastic because, for every pair you purchase, another pair is donated to the homeless, low-income shelters, and underprivileged classrooms. As of the publish date of this article, Sock Panda has donated over 50,000 socks! They have plans to give 100,000 over the next year. Can we help them get there?
