So, What is actually in the Spring Box?
Just under three months into spring, our boxes have been blooming! They are a mixture of everything you need to get your spring buzzing.
With the boxes fluttering off the shelves, we’ve been asked more about ‘what’s in the box?’ Our spring boxes at FAL are a mixture of Msulwa Life, Plant Matter & Growing Paper’s outstanding products. These come together to form FAL’s ultimate going green starter pack!
So, Why these brands?
Msulwa Life is a proudly South African online store that was started in 2020. Msulwa Life creates and sells unique eco-friendly and natural products. Msulwa means “Pure, Innocent & Clean” in isiZulu. Msulwa Life believes that these are the 3 vital components that we all should strive to align in our lives. Pure, Innocent & Clean - to achieve an optimal human lifestyle that is in harmony with our earth.
Plant Matter are environmentally friendly and reusable bags, made from fabric that prompts air pruning. They stop your plant's roots from becoming pot bound and makes it impossible to overwater your plants. Our spring box comes loaded with a 5L and 10L grow bag! Going green just got more exciting.
Why Growing Paper? They providing the seeds! Growing Paper are the seed paper people, led by a powerful team of female entrepreneurs. Growing Paper is 100% hand-made, biodegradable, & more importantly, plantable! Spot their Chives or Rocket seeds in your box.
What Msulwa Life products are in the box?
A completely natural, plastic-free, plant-based dental floss (30m) that is made of Organic Corn Silk coated in Natural Candelilla Wax and flavoured with Natural Mint! Regular dental floss is waxed nylon, rolled up in a small plastic box. Nylon, like plastic, is derived from crude oil that takes around 90 years to decompose. This also gives extra protection to wildlife from ingesting microplastics and helps the prevention of dangerous entanglement from the standard nylon non-biodegradable dental floss.
An exceptional plant-based facial cleansing sponge is made from the all-natural and sustainable Konjac Root (a porous vegetable that grows in Asia) and is completely plastic-free and vegan-friendly. It is packed with vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, proteins, lipids, fatty acids, copper, zinc, iron, magnesium, and antioxidants. Unlike other exfoliators that harm the environment, konjac is completely natural, non-toxic, and biodegradable (no harmful plastic microbeads needed!)
These Eco-Conscious Cotton Buds are the plastic-free solution to the overuse of plastic-stemmed buds. Our Cotton Buds are Eco-Friendly, Plastic Free, Natural/Organic, quickly Biodegradable & utilize Recycled Paper! No matter how easy it may be to use the plastic-stemmed buds, they wreak complete havoc in the environment. The World Wildlife Fund reports countries such as the UK use about 13.2 billion of them annually! Where do they end up? Our landfills or oceans where they are eaten by animals such as fish and birds. These create serious damage to the animals and the surrounding food chain.
Seeded pencils are incredibly unique as they produce no waste and support a green and healthy environment. The end of these pencils are seeds for the herb Mint! Once you’ve used your HB seeded pencil, just plant it! The cap will sprout within 10-15 days depending on how often you water it!
Our oceans have continents of plastic in them that devastate our marine life. What we need is a Toothbrush made from organic sustainable bamboo that is naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial. Plastic toothbrushes are made from a mix of plastics that contain toxic and dangerous materials that leak out into your mouth and environment. So, opt for the alternative, a more sustainable bamboo brush!
