Q: When does the February box ship?Asked by Melissa N., February 2021

greenUP Box answered...February 2021

Hi Melissa, thanks for reaching out! The current box, The Kitchen Box, is shipping in late February. The normal scheduled time would be this week but there are delays from some of the small businesses due to the pandemic. We'll keep you posted via email. :)

Q: Hi. I ordered the June box on 6/29. When might it ship? I know it is not on the same schedule as the boxes shipped at the beginning of the month. Asked by E. H., July 2020

Hi there! We're so excited you're getting The Summer Box! If you ordered on the 29th, it will ship this week. :) You'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Q: Are your items made in the United States, does your box include made in China items. Looking for a subscription box that supports businesses in the United States. Asked by Delilah S., May 2020

greenUP Box answered...May 2020

Hi Delilah,
We carry products from a variety of eco and sustainability focused brands
and companies. They have products that are made across the globe,
including the U.S., Canada, Europe, South America, and Asia. We also would
like to see more products made in the U.S., unfortunately what we hear from
the eco brands we work with is that U.S. manufacturing is extremely
limited. This is especially true for the small businesses we support. For
example, the summer box contains deodorant and sunscreen that are made in
the U.S. and an ayurvedic copper water bottle that is made in India. Every
brand walks us through their process to create sustainability and work
with ethical manufacturers. These brands are doing amazing things, such as
helping manufacturers learn how to reduce plastic throughout the entire
supply chain.
Thanks!

Q: Are you ever going to ship to Canada??Asked by Calyssa B., November 2019

greenUP Box answered...November 2019

Hi Calyssa,
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. :)
Thanks!

Good stuff in two of the three boxes. Shipping was odd, as two of the three boxes came within two weeks of each other in Dec, then the third in early March. Thought it would stretch out a bit more.

Maybe not the best surprise

Love the gift and the idea itself, and so did the person who received the gift, but it was a gift for Christmas. Even though I set for the email to send to them ON Christmas Day they got the email ten days early, which ruined the surprise, so be careful about that if you’re trying to surprise someone.

Thanks Sydney! We're happy you love the gift and so sorry the surprise was ruined! :(
We really wish we had the ability on CrateJoy for customers to say what date they would like a gift email to go out. Right now they're just sent shortly after the order is placed. This would be great functionality though and we'll put in a request for it! Hope the person is still surprised by what's in the box and enjoys opening it. Thank you for taking the time to write us!

Awesome, but on the fence this month

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.

Not worth the price of the box

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...

Great Box

Terrific value for what you get. Items are from independent eco-friendly businesses, all are useful (and usable) on a daily basis. Thoughtful curation and good variety.
