The Bali Box


One-Off Quarterly Box


We’re kicking off with the ultimate gift box: Hong Kong’s first eco Christmas subscription package. This is a perfect way to introduce eco-living into your daily life, or if you’re well on the bandwagon, a replenishing of stock. The Bali Box is a quarterly subscription of hand-picked eco-conscious, sustainable, and natural products, sourcing bath, beauty and kitchen items from Bali to Hong Kong and makes a great eco Christmas gift. Shipping emissions are offset using MyClimate.org for every order.


We trialed and tested the One-Off Quarterly Box, an assortment of luxury eco Christmas from kitchen necessities to natural bath remedies. Each item is carefully sourced by founder Tara who ensures the products tick all the environmentally-friendly boxes (natural, non-toxic, biodegradable/recycled materials, including coconut and essential oils, dried lontar palm leaf, seagrass, recycled cotton, beeswax, and soy wax, and packaging (if any) is generally recycled paper, tin or glass). She works with local artisans and small businesses in Bali to ensure social responsibility, and all products are plastic-free with the exception of some caps on natural bug sprays and essential oils.


Price: $700 HKD for one box (7-8 products per box)
