Q: Are you ever going to ship to Canada??Asked by Calyssa B., November 2019
We do hope to but it's not in our plan for this year. Unfortunately
shipping to Canada via our current processes is very expensive and time
consuming. We will start looking into more global options next year. :)

Q: Can the box be curated to be more towards dorm life?Asked by Morgan C., June 2019
The box is curated around six major areas to make it easier to build habits
that last. Some of the boxes would be great for dorm life and we currently
don’t have a special box series that’s curated for the nuances of form
life. Wishing you a great plastic reducing journey!

Loved to discovered so many beautiful products for my kitchen in my February boxes such a hassle to find plastic free products in my area or have them shipped without any plastic involved.This box is perfect.
The items themselves were in good condition but not worth the amount the box costs. It was honestly a waste of money.
Hi Savanna, we're disappointed that this box did not live up to your expectations as we want everyone to feel inspired and excited to reduce plastic. We exist to make going plastic-free easier and more affordable. The retail value of the Clean & Purify Box is over $75. We do know however that the brands we often work with are higher end and less expensive alternatives can be found. We work with the brands we do because they are dedicated to ethical and sustainable production while reducing plastic throughout the supply chain. This means a lot more work for those companies and higher costs. We value these brands greatly as the work they're doing is difficult. We know there are many paths to reduce waste...
Loved everything in the past boxes for the kitchen and the bags for produce and the one for Christmas gifts. However now that it’s every 2 months, I would expected more in the box besides assortment of bags. There was only one other thing in it. The kitchen box was by far the best box and if more items contain more than just bags, it will be much better. Not in subscribing, but more on the fence to what to expect. The box also with the tooth paste tabs and stuff for toiletry was also great. I just felt like this box just took a step back to where it was for the market.
Hi Amanda! Thanks for the feedback. :) It has changed to every two months and the price hasn't increased so each box contains the same value as before. We hear your feedback on The Grocery Haul Box and we'll make sure the team hears it.
I have received 2 boxes from GreenUP. Oct which was bathroom themed, and Nov which was mostly gift wrap themed, but did include some glass and bamboo spice jars. They took Dec off which is pretty nice for their employees.
One of my spice jars came shattered, and when I contacted GreenUP they immediately sent an entire new pack (3!) of the spice jars, plus a couple additional gift wrap bags. Such amazing customer service! The boxes are overall pricier than I am comfortable with, so I unfortunately don't see this being a long term sub for me, but each of the items is plastic free and intended long term use, so I am happy to contribute while I can.
One thing that bothers me a little bit is not knowing where the unbranded items come from. I don't know how much they actually cost (so unsure of the "worth" of the box overall), and cannot purchase additional items if I decide I really like something.
Overall I am super stoked this business exists and that I found them!
I cannot recommend this box enough. Fanstastic service and all of the items in this box are the perfect way to start your wast reducing journey.
I just received my 2nd box and will continue with this subscription for a while. I am really, really impressed with the HIGH QUALITY items they send (very cute and unique items). The box is a little pricey but it is worth it and the items can be used over and over, unlike the disposable items we generally buy. Great box!!
I am pleased with the first box. I can't wait for more!
The shipping was fast.Box was filled with creative ideas on the green up philosophy!!!!
I'm glad I found this box. I'm becoming more aware of all the disposable plastic I use and I'm ready to change that! This box is packed with thoughtful quality items to help cut back... Can't wait for next months box!
This is exactly what I was looking for! I had no idea how to start reducing plastic in my life in a meaningful, sustainable way. Cute products that I can trust are actually sustainable. I also loved that the first box was thoughtfully packaged to reduce waste.
This box provided just the right items to make a trip to the market or excursion for groceries a plastic-free work of art.
For busy commuters or just lunchtime enthusiasts, this box was the perfect toolkit to get rid of disposable plastic.
Nothing quite like starting the day with some plastic-free routines to really get you motivated!
