Subscription boxes are super popular right now and you can find monthly boxes of everything from jerky to kid’s crafts. Ever since I went to the AYA Summit in DC last month, I have tried to focus on what I can do to empower women from my own home. One of those ways is to buy fair trade or support products and businesses that donate back to non-profits.
Here are seven social good subscription boxes that would be a perfect gift for yourself or a gift this Christmas season!
