More and more people are striving to live a lifestyle that is sustainable and environmentally friendly. But that’s not always so easy given all the disposable products and gratuitous packaging out there. Green shopping website Eco + Waza makes things easier with the Tomorrow Box. Get a subscription (¥6,300 for three months, ¥20,000 for a year) and you’ll receive five to eight new products shipped to your door each month. Each shipment is organized around a theme. October focused on planning for end-of-year cleaning and for November the concept is “Love and Light.” Pictured in the “Keep Cool” theme from August. The package includes a newsletter explaining each product and the theme as well as coupons for further shopping. Customers are encouraged to give the box itself a second life with projects from the Cardboard Collective (http://thecardboardcollective.com).
