About CAUSEBOX

CAUSEBOX exists to help bridge a knowledge gap between socially conscious brands and consumers. There are scores of companies making products responsibly and using commerce to empower — but without a widely recognized tastemaker, marketplace, or vetting agent, these companies are remarkably difficult to find. CAUSEBOX curates, vets, and validates socially conscious companies — and delivers their products with high value and convenience.

Each season, the CAUSEBOX team curates a limited edition box filled with products doing good, empowering artisans, and saving the environment. Every product has a story–and those stories of impact and change are told in a seasonal magazine (included in every CAUSEBOX), called Good News.

We take seriously our responsibility to only work with/showcase brands that meet a rigorous standard for ethics and impact. It is critical that we, as a company, meet a similar set of standards for positive impact, transparency, responsibility, and change.

The Change We Seek®

CAUSEBOX aims to be at the forefront of a shift in consumer behavior. CAUSEBPX believes that consumers will continue to demand more and more from the products and companies they support.

With CAUSEBOX, our hope is to connect a world of suppliers and consumers—to equip consumers with information about how their purchases matter, and to ensure that those purchases have positive impact on the world.

What makes us a better company?
