Subscription Box Spoiler Alerts: AUGUST
It’s like being a kid and finding the closet where mom hid all your Christmas presents – but BETTER. We got the inside scoop on some of the HOTTEST subscription boxes and what they are offering BEFORE they ship to members.
Our collection this month has a very urban feel this month with a custom, street art-inspired print created by New York graffiti legend Stash. His first canvases were exhibited alongside the artwork of street art pioneers Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Stash’s love of urban environments comes through all of the art he makes, whether it’s his paintings or photography. We were lucky enough to not only collaborate with him to create this month’s print for our clothing, which features “Fabletics” incorporated into the graffiti, but to also have him contribute his art to our company’s café.
Fabletics is a member-based online store for fitness apparel created by Kate Hudson. Their clothes are designed to take you from the fitness studio to real life, with vast size, style, color, and patterned offerings for cute workout clothes. There are two types of Fabletics members – regular and VIP. Regular members can sign up for free with just their email address and a password, and then shop for the workout gear whenever they want at regular prices. VIP members get deals on the apparel and free shipping, however they will get charged a monthly fee of $49.95 which can be applied to a purchase, unless they choose to “skip” a month.

Typically, most of us consider the laundry to be a drag. But what if it were an indulgence? The products in this month’s kit invite you to reconnect with a sense of gratitude at the joy of washing, to think of the laundry as a small, daily ceremony of renewal in harmony with the environment and echoing with the traditions of earth-centered livelihoods around the world.
Use your laundry bag to saunter gleefully, and functionally, to the laundromat, basement, riverbank, or wherever your laundry journey takes you. The word laundry goes at least as far back as its lovely Latin root, lavāre–to wash. The act of doing the laundry connects us with our ancestors, while the products in your kit connect you to different ways this tradition is carried out around the world. Enjoy!

After decades of poverty following the Khmer Rouge, a revival of traditional Cambodian arts and handicrafts is paving a colorful road out of the country’s dark past. Peace Handicrafts trains and employs disabled and underprivileged persons in the making of high quality products from recycled materials. For instance, your laundry bag was made from recycled cement bags.
