Sometimes it’s hard to see the green through the greenwash. Goodebox cuts through the claptrap with a monthly service that delivers boxes of pre-screened beauty and personal-care samples to your doorstep. The burgeoning company not only vets each trial-sized product for sustainability, efficacy, and ethics, but it also tailors your selection to fit your age, skin profile, and personality. Past boxes, curated by green gurus like Renée Loux and Jess Blades, have included some of our favorite brands, including Dr. Hauschka, Tatcha, Josie Maran Cosmetics, and Kahina Giving Beauty. Plus, every dispatch is chockablock with exclusive discounts and special offers, as well as opportunities to win full-size products.

Members also get the chance to preview products while they’re still in development. Want to feel even more virtuous? Goodebox has teamed up with TerraCycle’s Personal Care and Beauty Brigade to take back any typically non-recyclable beauty packaging.

For every unit of waste collected from its members, Goodebox will donate two cents to the Environmental Working Group.

For every unit of waste collected from its members, Goodebox will donate two cents to the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database. Members who send in 20 qualifying units of waste (roughly 1 pound) qualify to win bonus product samples.

“As a professional in the beauty industry, I see an incredible amount of waste generated that more often than not, can’t be recycled,” says Blades, Goodebox’s May curator. “Mascara tubes, foundation bottles, pressed powder compacts, and the list goes on. A program like this one, where consumers can not only take charge of their personal waste, but also benefit a charity that supports cleaner, safer beauty, is a win-win.”

Or as we’d call it, doubleplusgood.
