What will be in the box?
Each box contains an information-packed digital booklet on the country of the month, a book, and 3 ethically sourced items:

  • 1 handcrafted item
  • 1 consumable item
  • 1 wearable item

All items are all either direct trade or fair trade and go to supporting the local population.

Where do the items in the box come from?
Each box is themed to a particular country. The handcrafted and consumable items are ethically sourced from the local areas within the theme country. The items are all sourced through either direct trade or fair trade, and by purchasing them we directly support the local economy.
How much money goes to good causes?
For each box you purchase, $5 is shared among charitable organizations. 

  • $3 goes to Hope International
  • $1 goes to Feed My Starving Children
  • $1 goes to charity: water

All our items are either direct trade or fair trade and ethically sourced. With direct trade items, the farmers, artisanal miners and processors who sell their products receive every penny of the sale price because we work directly with the merchants. With fair trade items, “you can be sure it was made according to rigorous social, environmental, and economic Fair Trade standards, and the farmers, workers, and fishermen behind it earn additional money from your purchase to empower and uplift their communities.” Learn more at Fair Trade Certified.

Can I give a box or a subscription as a gift?

Of course! Our ethically sourced boxes make the perfect gift! Please ensure you provide us with the correct delivery address of your gift recipient when you set up your order and we’ll do the rest.

If you want to change or add a new delivery address to your next order we ask that you contact us before you are billed for the next box to allow us enough time to adjust your delivery. Contact us by email at customerservice@anchoredpurposebox.com
