The Renewable Box is a company founded with the goal to help individual consumers adopt greener lifestyles through their purchase decisions and education. Collectively, we can achieve a greener and more sustainable future.
The Renewable Box was founded by Viviana in 2021 after years of witnessing climate change issues worsen and feeling like individuals had a miniscule effect in improving these problems. As we began to research how to live more sustainably, terms such as ‘zero-waste’, ‘corporate social responsibility’, ‘greenwashing’ were all buzzwords that seemed to surround the sustainability space, but what does it all mean? What we realized was the accessibility of sustainability was low whether it be price deterrents, or knowledge gaps, these overwhelm consumers when starting their sustainability journeys and can result in them not starting at all.
“We don't need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.”
-Anne Marie Bonneau
This quote is fundamental to our company as we believe that living sustainably is a lifelong process, and it is better to start imperfectly than to do nothing at all. We created The Renewable Box as a way to help beginners take the first steps of their sustainability journey with The Sustainability Starter Box; a product box filled with sustainable products that can be easily swapped with conventional single-use or non-sustainable items. But, we are more than just a store. We aim to deliver easy to understand and actionable education through our social media to educate consumers in order to help them navigate the complex world of sustainable living and make it simple.
Sustainability does not have to be difficult, taking small daily steps to live a more eco-responsible lifestyle can result in monumental change on the global scale. We hope to empower you to take the first steps of your sustainability journey with our products and digestible education delivered to you through our social media @therenewablebox
We are a female minority owned company based in Toronto, Canada. We ship plastic-free with paper tape.
