April’s theme was “Happy Earth Day” and had items to help me be kind to the earth while I take care of myself. The information card contained a list of all the items in the box and everything was neatly tucked in between blue and green paper squiggles. There was a note at the bottom and it looks like a product that was supposed to be in here will be delayed until July. Kloverbox provides coupon codes for some of the items so if you fall in love with a product or want to discover a new item from a particular brand you can save some dough!

I was FaceTiming with my daughter, who is away at college, when she spotted this item on my desk and she knew exactly what the AvoSeedo ($9.95) was! Just place an avocado seed in the middle of this boat-like apparatus and place in a bowl of water. The AvoSeedo will float on the water and eventually the seed should sprout and when it’s about 6 inches tall you can plant it in your yard! It will take another 3-15 years before you might possibly have any fruit to show for your labors, but growing several avocado trees nearby might increase the chances of pollination. Fun facts: Most avocados trees are grafted and ungrafted trees rarely produce fruit. Also, a tree requires 250 gallons of water a week when it is producing. Finally, avocado trees can make a great evergreen even if it doesn’t grow fruit. I’m going to get my college girl to grow us an orchard when she gets home for the summer!

Elements of Aliel No. 2 Peace Cleanser ($15) My skin can be sensitive so I was happy to try a new cleanser! This one is black due to raw African black soap, which is made of ash from plants such as plantain, cocoa, or palm. It also has glycerin, chamomile, yarrow, and dandelion and I was surprised at how well just a little bit would clean my face. It was very sudsy and kind of stinky, plus I felt some irritation under my nose every time I used it. I used it twice a day for a week and it still burns a bit in that one place, but my skin looks pretty good and it didn’t turn red!

Zabana Essentials Dry Shampoo in Lavender Citrus Mint ($12.95) Skip the shower every once in a while to save water and give this dry shampoo a try instead. I didn’t catch much lavender but I did detect a hint of the citrus mint scent. Kaolin, collodial oatmeal, arrowroot powder, baking soda, essential oils, and bamboo extract are the all-natural ingredients here. Just sprinkle it on your roots, brush it in, and wait 5-10 minutes for it to sop up oil and freshen up your hair.

Mud Love Be the Change Band ($10) I love this quote that is often attributed to Mahatma Ghandi but is a paraphrasing of his actual words. Stop waiting for someone else to make the world a better place, go out and change it yourself! Sales of this waterproof clay piece provides a week of clean water to someone in the Central African Republic.

Here’s the bracelet on my 13 year old. The bracelet is a little clunky and might take some getting used to.

I think Kloverbox did a nice job of sending items that are good for our planet and for our bodies and homes, too. I look forward to putting my oldest in charge of growing some trees and I especially like the cleanser, stinkiness and all. April’s box had a value of $47.90, almost twice the price paid for the subscription!

What did you think of the April Kloverbox? Have you ever tried to grow an avocado tree from seed?

    My teenage son claimed the bracelet and loves it. I’m disappointed about the AvoSeedo because I can’t use it in my growing zone. I could plot it and bring it inside during the winter although it seems people in my zone do not have much success with that. am excited for your family’s plan to grow Avocado trees! I don’t use dry shampoo. I understand the reasons why they were included in the box, but half the box did not work out for me.

    I haven’t tired the cleanser yet. It does sounds like it would be good for rosacea. I believe that this will be my last box for now. I’ll be living vicarious through your review

      Anna, I am not sure how well the tree will do here. We had a seed sprout in our compost pile and planted it and come to think of it, it is no longer in our garden, although it is possible my husband yanked it out when we cleaned it up this winter. We also go through droughts so the watering may not be sustainable. I personally do not use dry shampoo, I test it in the morning before jumping in the shower because my hair is impossible unless I do so, but my older daughter loves dry shampoo so I will pass it along!
