A friend of mine recently told me about The Homegrown Collective, which is a subscription service that delivers a themed "green box" to your door every month. Each box is seasonal and promotes a self-sufficient and sustainable lifestyle. I do my best to support a more eco-conscious way of life {I am from Ojai after all} and I thought I would share it with you. Such a cool idea right? I recently received the aptly named "How Sweet It Is" box which was filled with local honey, bee pollen, rose hips, organic essential oils and all the tools and instructions to make your own lip balm, salves and elixirs. I think this subscription would make such a nice gift, whether it be for yourself or a friend. Check out their website for more information and a peak at past boxes.
