Consumer Critique: Kali Boxes

Many consumers are becoming more aware of what's in they buy, and one way to avoid ingredients like chlorine, chemicals, dyes, and other synthetics, is to to look for organic options. I had a chance to review a Kali Box, a box that contains 100% certified organic cotton and biodegradable tampons. It's convenient - you get 14 tampons (regular, super, or half/half), 10 individually packaged organic cotton towelettes, and a hydrating rosewater and aromatherapy spray.

Honestly, I wasn't used to using a spray, but it did have a lightly refreshing scent. I loved the box it came in - it made me a little excited to open up my tampons! At $25/month it is a tad pricier than buying just tampons, but the towelettes do add a nice cleansing benefit, and it's very convenient. It's easy to pause or cancel if you aren't satisfied or aren't using the whole amount each month.

In addition to providing an organic alternative, Kali wanted to create a culture of giving from the beginning. Piira explains, “The process of choosing a partner organization was something that we spent a lot of time on. We knew that we wanted a female-centric charity, and when the opportunity to work with Girl Up arose, we knew that is was perfect fit.”

Girl Up, the United Nations Foundation’s adolescent girl empowerment campaign, is led by a community of half a million passionate advocates who raise funds and awareness to help the hardest to reach girls living in places where it is hardest to be a girl. The campaign knows that girls are the most powerful force for change, and when they’re educated, healthy, safe, and counted, they can transform their communities.

“We are so excited to partner with Kali,” said Melissa Hillebrenner Kilby, Director of Girl Up. “Like Kali, Girl Up is on a mission to empower girls around the world to be confident, because a confident girl is powerful. We look forward to working with Kali to unite girls to change the world.”

Shipping is currently available in the United States, subscribers that sign up before the 20th of the month will receive their box by the 1st of the following month. For more information on Kali or to subscribe for the monthly Kali Box, please visit www.kaliboxes.com.
