The Vegan Kind has landed! I’ve been banging on about it on various social media accounts lately, but in case you value your sanity and therefore steer clear of my Twitter feed: The Vegan Kind is a brand new all-vegan lifestyle subscription box, which you can get for £12.95 (includes postage & packaging) to your door each month. This service is the only one of its kind in the UK as it addresses all parts of living a vegan lifestyle rather than being a pure food box. Since I’ve only started applying veganism to my household & beauty products fairly recently, this is a massive plus-point to me. It’s already helped me discover some great new items!
The box is fully recyclable and also a really handy size for storing & posting things if you find yourself regularly running out of boxes. It comes with a letter talking about the box & introducing the month’s chosen charity – The Vegan Kind donate 10p from every sold box to an animal charity of their choice. This November, it was the more-than-worthy Farplace Animal Rescue, which is a sanctuary I greatly admire and therefore spammed TVK’s Facebook and Twitter accounts with. It would seem others love the charity just as much, as they ended up being chosen!
Each box will also include an information leaflet featuring each of the chosen products (including discount codes, yay) and a recipe card. This time it was Vegan Vox’s Slow Cooker Leek & Potato Soup. Her blog is definitely worth a browse, it has some great recipes and I’ve started following it on bloglovin’ to make sure I don’t miss a single post!
The first item in my box was this cute little badge. It’s manufactured by Koolbadges, a small company run by two fellow vegans.
Next (not pictured) was Crystal Spring Salt of the Earth Deodorant (trial size), which is a typical crystal deodorant stick. This will be great to pop into a bag while travelling, it’s small and solid, meaning it should be no problem to take it onto a plane.
Also included was Clearspring Organic Miso Bouillon Paste (full size). I’m really excited about this, like nearly everyone I use some form of bouillon on a regular basis and I’m hoping this will really improve the flavour of my soups and seitan while being less harsh on the stomach than conventional products.
This product is something I’m really excited about. We’ve been looking around for less wasteful laundry products for a while, and these appear to be the perfect solution. Living Naturally Soapnut products promise effective laundry-washing without endless amounts of detergents and softener. This sample set (trial size) includes 5 soapnuts in a muslin bag, which should last about 5 washes, a small bottle of soapnut liquid, which is enough for 3 loads, a little sample of soapnut soap (this smells amazing!), instructions and a larger muslin bag that can be used for storing miscellaneous little items. If this product is as effective as it sounds, I’ll definitely be repurchasing. Keep an eye open for a review soon!
The Vegg also featured in this package (full size). I won’t be going into detail about it here, but you can read my review & recipe by clicking on the link.
A sweet treat was included in the shape of Goody Good Stuff, which was so delicious that we ate it all up before we got a picture. You can read more about their products in my LABL Fair post.
Last but not least, Qi tea samples were featured (sample size – 3 tea bags). I got Green Tea Plus,White Tea & Goji Berry & Authentic China Green Tea. So far I’ve only tried the White Tea, but it was delicious and I’ll definitely be using my discount code to order some more!
Overall, this box was a definite success with a retail value of £15.28 and some really interesting products. I’d like to say thanks to Karris for creating such a great product, I’m very excited to see what’s in the next box!
