2023 Fall Favorites Mantra Box® Unveiling
It’s that time of year again – the time to share what we put into our Fall Favorites Mantra Box®. Mantra Box® is a unique discovery box that features the hottest wellness products on the market. The majority of the products inside are from small businesses you likely will not see in your local big box stores. Check out the full unveiling here on our YouTube Channel.
If you’re new around here, a quick back story: Years ago, I was receiving packages from small businesses all over the country. They’d send them in the hopes that I would share on social and while I did share what I loved, it didn’t really do that much to help get the word out about the companies, so together with Marketing Director Lauren, we brainstormed about how we could help. The more we learned about retail, the more we realized just how expensive it is for a small business to get onto the shelves at big box stores. We put our thinking caps on and came up with the idea of Mantra Box®.
We have just ONE Mantra Box® left in stock – snag it now!
Check out the video below to see what was in this Mantra Box®, and join our newsletter to be notified when our Holiday Mantra Box® is available for preorder.
Hannah Mendoza, Founder Clevr Blends
Company: Clevr Blends
Founder: Hannah Mendoza
Why the company was started: We had humble beginnings—my co-founder and I started a pop-up adaptogenic coffee bar in 2016. We traveled around the US, waxing lyrical about the magic of plants. People listened, they felt better in their bodies and minds, and we created Clevr to make those feelings easier to reach. Our hope is that we’ve created something that will be the first and easiest good decision you make each day. That by feeling nourished, and by energizing in a way that’s restorative, not extractive, you’ll be able to show up more fully for yourself and your community.
How does the company “pay it forward” or give back to the community? We are proudly 1% for Food Justice. We humbly donate part of our monthly revenue to organizations fighting for a more equitable food system. We work with El Centro Santa Barbara, a Black, Indigenous, People of Color and LQBTQIA+ led organization working to address social and ecological inequities in the Lower Westside of Santa Barbara, CA.
