The Ethics of Consciousness

Conscious Box, above all, is dedicated to the very ethics it seeks out in other businesses.

Conscious Box Recycles

Resource Use

We strive to make every aspect of our business as sustainable as possible. We’re always looking for ways to reduce waste and increase efficiency to support a more conscious approach to business. Some of the ways we do this is by using 100% post-consumer recycled cardboard, recycled tissue paper, and vegetable-based inks for printing. We also encourage our subscribers to upcycle their boxes and share their ideas on our Facebook page. We’re striving to make our business as waste-free as possible, but only you can make this a truly zero-waste experience!

Smart Shipping

We recognize that although we strive to be a waste-free business, the process of shipping can be taxing on our environment. That’s why we designed our box with this problem specifically in mind. The size of each Conscious Box was strategically chosen to maximize shipping efficiency while still providing enough space for a huge variety of products in a wide range of shapes and sizes. We’re constantly improving upon this process, and always on the lookout for new ways to improve our carbon footprint. As a member of 1% for the Planet we seek to help offset these emissions, and are seeking partnerships with other organizations to continually lessen our impact.

Honest Labor at Fair Wages

Conscious Box Warehouse

Conscious Box is also a supporter of jobs here in the United States. We only employ American workers who receive fair wages for the packing and shipping of boxes. All employees of Conscious Box are also encouraged to speak their minds and help the company move forward. To us, this is a family more than a business.

Protecting the Planet

Conscious Box is also committed to conserving and preserving our home, Mother Earth. We work with 1% for the Planet to make sure every purchase goes to a cause, and we also are active in the green community, spreading the message of environmentalism and encouraging others to take a critical stance when it comes to personal and public sustainability.

Committed to Customers

Finally, we encourage all of our subscribers to write us, review us, and be critical of us! No business is perfect, and Conscious Box is no exception. We constantly seek ways to improve our business, and we know you, the consumer, knows best. Tell us your thoughts and help us make change!

@BuluBox Subscription Sends You Supplements 1 Month Free Code @skyyogastudio

image Unlike many New Year’s resolutions, like losing 50 pounds or becoming vegan, adding supplements is one goal that can easily be achieved for 2013. Dr. Kristen Bobik, founder of Balance Chiropractic and Wellness Practitioners, explains how 5 essential daily supplements can make a positive contribution to your overall health. This small, yet significant addition to daily life is something that anyone can commit to—and stick to—for the New Year, especially with a subscription plan from Bulu Box.

The Top 5 Essential Daily Supplements:

1) Probiotics- The truth about the Immune System is that over 80% of it is actually housed inside of our Digestive System, from the stomach all the way through the intestines, also known as the gut. Probiotics are the “good bacteria” to balance out the common abundance of bad bacteria in the gut. In addition to improving our Immunity, Probiotics are great for digestive symptoms (bloating, pain, constipation, diarrhea, etc.) and skin conditions (acne, rashes, psoriasis, eczema, dry skin).

2) Digestive Enzymes – When we cook/heat our food, we lose valuable enzymes that help the body break down our food and absorb the nutrients. Digestive Enzymes replace those lost enzymes, and assist the gut in functioning. Digestive Enzymes also help with symptoms such as: bloating, difficult digestion, heartburn, and constipation.

3) Fish Oil – Omega 3 oils (the “good” fats) provide great support to the brain, heart, and lower inflammation (think: arthritis and poor memory). The average American has too little Omega 3s and too many Omega 6s (which is the “bad” fat) due to poor food choices.

4) An Alkalizing Tablet, like “Alka Green” – The body’s pH basically describes what the chemical environment of our insides is like. It can be either acidic or alkaline, and this is determined by many factors (most notably the food we eat/drink and stress level). Americans are 70% acidic, but we need our body’s pH to be 70% alkaline to be healthy. How do we become more alkaline? Vegetables are alkaline, and most other foods (dairy, sugar, carbs, anything processed) are acidic. Alkalizing tablets bridge the gap. Why is alkalinity so important? Research as early as the 1930?s has shown conclusively that cancer CANNOT survive in an alkaline environment.

5) Goji Berries (dried and organic) – Chinese Medicine has been using foods as medicine for 5,000 years with success. What we put in our body can either work for us or against us. To make a long story short, many Americans have trouble with our Kidney Energetic Pathway in Chinese Medicine terms. This pathway has to do with our energy levels, low back pain, bags under the eyes, low immune system, and more. Snacking on a small amount of Goji Berry daily will strengthen and nourish our Kidney Pathway.

Now it is easier than ever to add supplements to your wellness plan and even give the gift of health to a loved one. With nearly half of all American on at least one supplement, it’s obvious that a supplement would be the perfect gift for a fitness minded person for the holidays. It’s the gift of health and fitness.  But who gives pills to show that they care? The trend of subscription boxes has entered the world of vitamins and supplements just in time for the holiday season and now there’s the opportunity to give the gift of supplements year round.

Bulu Box is a unique gift for any fitness minded person that will be delivered directly to the recipient’s front door every month. It is the first monthly subscription vitamin and supplement sample box, filled with healthy vitamin and supplement samples. Bulu Box has done the work for you and selected only the most recognized and tested brands to include in their box. Now, there’s a way we can test products and see how well they work on our bodies before spending hundreds of dollars on the full sized bottles. Bulu Box is changing how we purchase supplements.

Bulu Box will make a great gift for your loved ones who are health and fitness minded this holiday season. Your loved ones will be able to discover new products they like and hopefully find the one that makes their a little better and easier. Bulu Box is even running a sale right now on 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions.  I received a sample Bulu Box to review and it is a pretty good deal for the items that you receive.  Although I did not receive any “pills” I did receive some great wellness items I might otherwise have not found. Each month you receive 4-5 samples of high quality products and can earn points for filling out surveys, sharing and sampling – things you already do!image

My box contained:

  • FRS Healthy Energy Chew (30) full size sample great for endurance enthusiasts
  • Perky Jerky
  • Crystal Essence Towelettes (1 towellete)
  • Cocoa Well True Energy Veggie Capsules (2 caps)
  • Almaseed Synergy Diet Supplement (2 sample) metabolism enhancement

My husband loved the Perky Jerky with its smoky bacon flavor and a hit of caffeine from Guarana helped him stay energized through the day of chores. If you find a sample product you like don’t worry about searching shelves all around for the product, Bulu Box sells them online and all those points you rack up? Use them to purchase full sized products! You can cancel your membership at any time but I doubt you will once you get used to receiving products regularly to your door, and who doesn’t love earning points for future purchases?

Still not sold?? Well how about giving a month a try for FREE? Go to and put in promo code FEELGOOD

Prevent #Emergencies with @MediSafe Free Cloud-Sync App @skyyogastudio .com



iOS, Android Users Receive Alerts When Family Members Don’t Record Taking Meds on Time;

Aggregated Stats Help Big Pharma Understand Patient Behaviors and Physician Trends

HAIFA, ISRAEL (November 14, 2012) MediSafe Project ( launched today the first-ever cloud-synced mobile app helping families prevent emergencies caused by over- or under-dosing medications.

Simple to use, available for all Android devices, and compatible with iPhones and iPads as an alpha version, MediSafe Project is the first mobile health app not only reminding users when it’s time to take their medication, but also using families’, friends’ and caretakers’ intervention instincts by sending them alerts when a loved one misses a dose.

Inspired by their diabetic father’s accidental insulin double-dose, brothers Rotem and Omri ‘Bob’ Shor view MediSafe Project as a way to lower hospitalization and mortality rates, promote sustainable behavior changes that prolong health, decrease long-term healthcare costs and help pharmaceutical companies understand patients’ barriers to medication compliance.

“An American dies every nineteen minutes from skipping medication or taking meds incorrectly; the problem costs U.S. hospitals $100 billion every year,” said MediSafe Project CEO Omri ‘Bob’ Shor.  “MediSafe Project combats the staggering problem of medication non-compliance using everyday technology and the power of support systems to integrate healthier behaviors into patients’ lives.  The ripple effects from these changes benefit our entire society.”

Part of the first graduating class of the Microsoft Accelerator for Windows Azure, MediSafe Project also has vital, Big Data implications for pharmaceutical companies.  From anonymous demographics, geolocation and patient behaviors to physician trends and other market aspects, MediSafe Project’s broad analytics can help pharmaceutical companies better understand how people receive and take their medication.  Says Shor: “The dashboard is able to show you which demographics have higher non-compliance for a drug compared to the general population, the doctors or areas that have the lowest prescription rates with a city, competitive drugs patients are switching to, and so on.”  Discussions with several Big Pharma companies are underway, and Shor expects partnership deals to begin closing when MediSafe Project exits Beta status in 2013.

Initial launch features include:

· Visual, Easy-to-use User Interface – The app’s homescreen resembles an interactive pillbox.  Users can customize different meds to look like different pills, and the center MediSafe logo turns into a mouth swallowing meds when users signify taking medication by dragging preconfigured pills into it.

· FDA Drug Database Compatible – Users can type in medications’ generic or brand names, or take pictures with their devices’ cameras of the FDA’s universal National Drug Code (NDC) number – included on all original pharmaceutical packaging  – and the correct pharmaceutical name, manufacturer and medication strength will automatically be recorded, ensuring an error-free medication list in the event of a medical emergency.

? Prescription Refill Alerts – Users receive alerts before medication courses are completed, allowing them to order prescription refills for medications taken chronically.

? Privacy Protections – Syncing medication schedules with caretakers is optional.  Aggregated usage statistics are anonymous.  Viral sharing is limited to email.

Available now as a free download in Google Play and iTunes App Store (preview version), MediSafe Project is a complete ecosystem of patients, families, doctors, drug stores and pharmaceutical companies to solve the hazardous and costly problem of medication non-compliance.
