Eco Emi August 2011 - Pangea Organics

My Eco-Emi box arrived a bit squashed this month, but thankfully nothing inside was destroyed.

These little cotton pouches come in handy - they can be used to store jewelry, makeup, feminine products or cash, or you can use them as a gift bag for small gifts.

Eco-Emi loves giving us lip balms!  This is the THIRD month in a row that Eco-Emi has included lip balms in their box.  And at this point, I am lip-balmed out.  I gave this one away to a friend of mine today.  I can't possibly use up the other two EE lip balms, plus the other Pangea Organics lip balm that I received in my Birchbox a few months ago, PLUS 4 others that I own, including two Eos balms, a Body Shop balm and a Fresh balm. Enter, lip balm fatigue...

I am joining a new gym in September, so I know that this vegan protein powder is going to come in handy when I start lifting weights again.  It is important to consume enough protein when exercising.

Eco-Emi featured Dr. Hauschka body washes last month.  Although I did try them out, I felt that the amount of product wasn't enough for me to be able to make a determination if the body washes were any good or not.

This time around, the samples are larger, so I think I will be able to get a better idea of what exactly the Dr. Hauschka products are all about.

Included were some Organic Chai/Tea samples, including an interesting Green Tea with Spices.

I don't care for Ranch flavored dips or salad dressings, but almost everyone I know does!  I was going to keep this seasoning mix for an end of summer barbecue, but within minutes of me walking away from the table where I had filmed my video, my cat jumped up onto the table, nosed out this packet and started do bite into it and drool all over it as if it was catnip!  Alas! I had to throw out the dip mix and no one got to appreciate it. R.I.P. Ranch Dip.

A friend of mine is really into Acai, so I gave him these vitamin chews.

Another body wash sample, this time from Gabriel Organics.  I really think that these small samples of body wash are completely ineffective and a waste of time.

So this completes my Eco-Emi box for August.  I enjoyed the products, but not as much as I enjoyed the July EE box.  I enjoy getting at least one cosmetic sample along with some skin care, a household product or two, and a food sample.  But this month, no cosmetics and no household product.  

If you are interested, visit the Eco-Emi website.  You can sign up for the EE Box for $15 including shipping.  Their website also allows you to purchase full size versions of the samples.  

They feature a blog, recipes, and advice on what man is really doing to the environment and to animals.   We can all be better informed and not support companies that add harmful chemicals to products we use, or abuse animals for the sake of cosmetics and household products.
