The Vegan Kind Box


It's here. I have been really excited about this box service because there's nothing like it out there. My ideal world would be one where I was 100% vegan, that includes making or buying eco friendly-vegan cleansing products, beauty, fashion and home interiors. I already make a lot of home cleaning products and I use to make some body creams and perfumes but work and life got in the way so that kind of went out of the window. 

This box makes things easier, it includes a range of products to suit for health, beauty and lifestyle. These boxes cost £10 and are monthly boxes. Here's what was inside mine... 


Included: 

  • Clearspring Organic Miso Bouillon Paste  (£2.89) (concentrated vegetable stock) - Contains 4 sachets. I adore Miso and use it quite a lot, if you haven't tried Miso before I really recommend it. It's fermented soya that tastes really rich and homely. 
  • The VEGG Vegan Egg Yolk (£4.45) One teaspoon mixed is the equivalent of 2-3 egg yolks. Fantastic for French toast or even Vegan cupcakes. I've not used it yet but I'm very excited, I have some cupcakes planned for it. 
  • 25g Packet Of Good Stuff Sour Cherry Sweets (£0.35) I love this brand, we buy the peach sweets regularly. Good Stuff contain no gelatin, fat, dairy, artificial colourings or artificial flavourings but taste absolutely amazing.  Needless to say these have been munched and they are s-u-p-e-r sour. 
  • Living Naturally Soapnut Shells Sample Pack (£3.49) I love soapnuts and use them regularly, for those not in the know soapnuts contain saponin which is what gives soaps their 'bubbles'. Most companies use harmful SLS and SLE to give their products bubble but these ingredients are carcinogenic. Would you chance using something that's possibly cancer inducing on your children? Soapnuts are natural and do not increase your chance of cells mutating and causing a range of health issues and cancer, it can also be used as washing liquid, all purpose cleaner and face and body cleansers. A little goes a long way as it takes around 4 soapnuts to clean a heavily dirty load, you just pop them in the muslin bag provided and chuck it in the wash. If you want to create a 'scent' you can grate up some of the soap, make a wash 'gloop' and add some essential oils to your gloop. I'll post more on the washing gloop in a separate post. 
  •  Rose Castille Soapnut Soap 90g Sample. Can be used on your face, body, grated in your washing, grated and added to an soapnut all purpose cleanser... the uses are limitless really. 
  • Soapnut Liquid Laundry Detergent - I've not used this yet but I will do so tomorrow. This comes in a heavy amber glass 10 or 15ml bottle. 
  • Bonus items - Include a TVK badge and a glossy recipe for 'Vegan Vox's Slow Cooker Leek and Potato Soup, this looks scrummy and I'm currently addicted to my slow cooker. I use it every single day! A recipe card will come with each delivery and in your third subscription month you will receive a ring binder as these have punched holes for quick filing.  
Overall I'm super impressed and really excited to see where the future takes The Vegan Kind. I found making the change from vegetarian to vegan (I'm currently still on pledge) frustrating, I've always reverted between vegetarian and vegan simply because I found it difficult and expensive to stick to only vegan meals - The Vegan Kind allows me to try products I may have not considered and just makes the conversion so much more simple. 

I think there TVK is definitely filling a gap in the market, we have plenty of beauty boxes and some lifestyle boxes but nothing that caters to vegans. Oh and I've even managed to recycle the posting box. My sons came home telling me the shoebox appeal collection was back on. Here's what we filled it with, ready to be sent tomorrow (anti-bacterial hand gel, sanitary protection, hand and body wash, pencils, little toys, toothbrush, shampoo, floss, candles, a heart decoration, books, lip balm, hair bobbles and ribbons and other bits and bobs).
